Today, many web applications are built on frameworks. Since frameworks provide useful abstraction for common functionalities they are thus attractive from cost and development time perspectives. However, from security perspectives an application built on a framework is only as secured as its underlining framework.
This project will focus on testing different web frameworks for weaknesses and vulnerabilities to understand their strengths and weaknesses.
The co-supervisors of this project are Tosin Oyetoyan and Daniela Soares Cruzes at SINTEF Digital.
Keywords: security testing, frameworks, weaknesses, vulnerabilities
