Let's say, just for the sake of this article, that you're a developer and that you work for a Fortune 500 corporation. Let's also say that you take jobs on the side for small companies. You guarantee the security of your apps when used on the web. They are supposed to be secure, and they are only used on the web. So what's to worry about? Your reputation if you find out that your apps are not secure and you do nothing about it.
This book will help you determine if your apps are as secure as you think, and if they're not, it will help you find and use the tools to test them. If they need more security, you can then beef up your security, both on your current apps and any future apps. Now your reputation is secured as well.
What if I'm not a developer? What if I'm just a regular Jane or Joe just doing my job? What if I'm just Suzy Homemaker and I'm just checking my email, or I'm selling items on a little website I own? This book is also for you. With the tools and information in this book you can definitely make your website more secure. You can plug the holes and remove as much vulnerability as is possible. This book is chock full of ideas to help you maintain a secure website, and apps whether you're a developer or not. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone concerned about securing their website and/or apps. If you're not concerned,, maybe you should be?

If you are looking for a quick introduction to the topic, this might be worthwhile. If you are looking for more intermediate or advanced discussions this might not be the book for you. Overall well written and easy to follow. A few of the commands are off, and so you have to work at them to get things working.

This is an outstanding book for someone who wants to be a white, black, or grey hat hacker, or a beginner sneaker. It has good resources for you to take your education to the next level as well.

This is a great book for anyone interested in websecurity. It is not a detailed how to, but it give you enough to really understand the concepts and where to start.

I found this book very helpful in laying a foundation of understanding. However, I thought it was on the short side.
