An example-driven approach to securing Oracle APEX applications

As a Rapid Application Development framework, Oracle Application Express (APEX) allows websites to easily be created based on data within an Oracle database. Using only a web browser, you can develop and deploy professional applications that are both fast and secure. However, as with any website, there is a security risk and threat, and securing APEX applications requires some specific knowledge of the framework. Written by well-known security specialists Recx, this book shows you the correct ways to implement your APEX applications to ensure that they are not vulnerable to attacks. Real-world examples of a variety of security vulnerabilities demonstrate attacks and show the techniques and best practices for making applications secure.

  • Divides coverage into four sections, three of which cover the main classes of threat faced by web applications and the forth covers an APEX-specific protection mechanism
  • Addresses the security issues that can arise, demonstrating secure application design
  • Examines the most common class of vulnerability that allows attackers to invoke actions on behalf of other users and access sensitive data

The lead-by-example approach featured in this critical book teaches you basic "hacker" skills in order to show you how to validate and secure your APEX applications.
