“There are a lot of security flaws in websites like Facebook and WordPress applications. Most of those flaws are because the developers first create the application and then consider the security.” — Abbas Naderi
PHP is one of the most used programming languages for the web. The problem with PHP has always been that it’s easy to get started programming with PHP, but that’s also one of its biggest flaws when considering application security. Abbas Naderi leads the OWASP PHP Security Project, which is a sample framework to demonstrate proper usage of the tools and libraries, as well as providing guidelines for new PHP projects. In this segment of OWASP 24/7, I talk with Abbas about the PHPSEC project as well as one of his other project, RBAC.
