Web Application Security: Iberic Web Application Security Conference, IBWAS 2009, Madrid, Spain, December 10-11, 2009. Revised Selected Papers (Communications in Computer and Information Science)


IBWAS 2009, the Iberic Conference on Web Applications Security, was the first international conference organized by both the OWASP Portuguese and Spanish ch- ters in order to join the international Web application security academic and industry communities to present and discuss the major aspects of Web applications security. There is currently a change in the information systems development paradigm. The emergence of Web 2. 0 technologies led to the extensive deployment and use of W- based applications and Web services as a way to develop new and flexible information systems. Such systems are easy to develop, deploy and maintain and they demonstrate impressive features for users, resulting in their current wide use. The “social” features of these technologies create the necessary “massification” effects that make millions of users share their own personal information and content over large web-based int- active platforms. Corporations, businesses and governments all over the world are also developing and deploying more and more applications to interact with their bu- nesses, customers, suppliers and citizens to enable stronger and tighter relations with all of them. Moreover, legacy non-Web systems are being ported to this new intrin- cally connected environment. IBWAS 2009 brought together application security experts, researchers, educators and practitioners from industry, academia and international communities such as OWASP, in order to discuss open problems and new solutions in application security. In the context of this track, academic researchers were able to combine interesting results with the experience of practitioners and software engineers.

Agile Data Science 2.0: Building Full-Stack Data Analytics Applications with Spark


Data science teams looking to turn research into useful analytics applications require not only the right tools, but also the right approach if they’re to succeed. With the revised second edition of this hands-on guide, up-and-coming data scientists will learn how to use the Agile Data Science development methodology to build data applications with Python, Apache Spark, Kafka, and other tools.

Author Russell Jurney demonstrates how to compose a data platform for building, deploying, and refining analytics applications with Apache Kafka, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, d3.js, scikit-learn, and Apache Airflow. You’ll learn an iterative approach that lets you quickly change the kind of analysis you’re doing, depending on what the data is telling you. Publish data science work as a web application, and affect meaningful change in your organization.

  • Build value from your data in a series of agile sprints, using the data-value pyramid
  • Extract features for statistical models from a single dataset
  • Visualize data with charts, and expose different aspects through interactive reports
  • Use historical data to predict the future via classification and regression
  • Translate predictions into actions
  • Get feedback from users after each sprint to keep your project on track

Primer on Client-Side Web Security (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)


This volume illustrates the continuous arms race between attackers and defenders of the Web ecosystem by discussing a wide variety of attacks. In the first part of the book, the foundation of the Web ecosystem is briefly recapped and discussed. Based on this model, the assets of the Web ecosystem are identified, and the set of capabilities an attacker may have are enumerated. In the second part, an overview of the web security vulnerability landscape is constructed. Included are selections of the most representative attack techniques reported in great detail. In addition to descriptions of the most common mitigation techniques, this primer also surveys the research and standardization activities related to each of the attack techniques, and gives insights into the prevalence of those very attacks. Moreover, the book provides practitioners a set of best practices to gradually improve the security of their web-enabled services. Primer on Client-Side Web Security expresses insights into the future of web application security. It points out the challenges of securing the Web platform, opportunities for future research, and trends toward improving Web security.
