Web applications are the most common way to make services and data available on the Internet. Unfortunately, with the increase in the number and complexity of these applications, there has also been an increase in the number and complexity of vulnerabilities. Current techniques to identify security problems in web applications have mostly focused on input validation flaws, such as cross site scripting and SQL injection, with much less attention devoted to application logic vulnerabilities. Application logic vulnerabilities are an important class of defects that are the result of faulty application logic.
