Web Vulnerability Analysis

Web Vulnerability Analysis (Black and White Box)

As web applications become the default and preferred means to offer services online, securing these applications becomes more important than ever. One way of ensuring the security of web applications is novel programs that analyze a web application for security vulnerabilities. There are currently two main approaches to web vulnerability analysis: White-Box and Black-Box. White-Box tools leverage the source code of the application to discover security vulnerabilities, while Black-Box tools do not have access to the source code. Our research involves coming up with novel approaches to web vulnerability analysis, looking at ways to leverage the pros and cons of each approach in order to improve the security of web applications.
