Security incidents are indeed on the rise, but according to one authoritative analysis, 85% of all successful exploits focus on the top ten security vulnerabilities. In this report, author Chetan Karande—an active member of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)—covers the latest OWASP Top 10 security risks as they affect Node.js web applications.
This report acts as a quick reference guide to help Node developers secure their applications against these top ten threats. Karande devotes a chapter to each risk, covering both the attack mechanics in use as well as specific measures to guard against them. With these guidelines, you’ll be able to bake in security during design, development, code reviews, and testing.
