Web Application Security
Security is a contentious issue for Web applications, with developers and administrators sharing overall responsibility, while still focusing on their specialist abilities. As a developer, you need to consider tasks such as user authentication, authorization, and impersonation; you also need to produce a model that the administrators can use when the application goes live. Among other duties, administrators will be responsible for configuring Web server security, applying security patches and fixes, and assigning users to the different groups, roles, or access levels that you’ve defined. As you can imagine, these two sets of responsibilities are closely interwoven; so, it makes sense for both teams to work together when planning and designing security features, and subsequently, for them to maintain a good rapport as the application is developed and deployed.
