Virtual Open-Source Labs for Web Security Education

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Web security education depends heavily on hands-on labs that guide the students in developing web applications, evaluating the effectiveness of available security mechanisms, and detecting the security flaws of existing web applications. Since a typical web application runs on multiple servers including web servers, application servers and database servers, it has been a great challenge in supporting them in university laboratories. This paper introduces some of their virtual web security labs developed as part of their NSF SWEET (Secure WEb dEvelopment Teaching) and Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship projects.
