Advanced web application security
This module builds on the web application security module. It studies cross-domain web interactions, such as cross-site request forgery (XSRF), and their impact on contemporary e-society. In addition, an overview of possible mitigation techniques is discussed, including techniques used in practice and state-of-the-art techniques described in the literature.
