Web application security is a branch of information security that deals specifically with security of websites, web applications and web services. Simply, Web application security is \"The securing of web applications\". Web applications are one of the most prevalent platforms for information and services delivery over Internet today. As they are increasingly used for critical services, web applications become a popular and valuable target for security attacks. Although a large body of techniques has been developed to fortify web applications and mitigate the attacks toward web applications, there is little effort devoted to drawing connections among these techniques and building a big picture of web application security research.
