The PHP scripting language works beautifully with other open source tools, such as the MySQL database and Apache web server software, to build interactive web applications. But security is still an issue that developers need to address, given the frequency of attacks on web sites. Essential PHP Security explains the types of attacks that hackers use on web sites and how to correctly configure Apache and PHP to guard against them. The author of Essential PHP Security, Chris Shiflett, is an internationally recognized expert in the field of PHP security and this book shows developers how to guard against attacks by writing secure PHP code.
product description

Being highly flexible in building dynamic, database-driven web applications makes the PHP programming language one of the most popular web development tools in use today. It also works beautifully with other open source tools, such as the MySQL database and the Apache web server. However, as more web sites are developed in PHP, they become targets for malicious attackers, and developers need to prepare for the attacks.

Security is an issue that demands attention, given the growing frequency of attacks on web sites. Essential PHP Security explains the most common types of attacks and how to write code that isn't susceptible to them. By examining specific attacks and the techniques used to protect against them, you will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the safeguards you are about to learn in this book.

In the much-needed (and highly-requested) Essential PHP Security, each chapter covers an aspect of a web application (such as form processing, database programming, session management, and authentication). Chapters describe potential attacks with examples and then explain techniques to help you prevent those attacks.

You are in good hands with author Chris Shiflett, an internationally-recognized expert in the field of PHP security. Shiflett is also the founder and President of Brain Bulb, a PHP consultancy that offers a variety of services to clients around the world.
