Security Checks Cheat Sheet

We know that security issues and security testing are important, so how can we empower our testing efforts? How can we approach this activity? Of course, The OWASP web application checklist is a great starter but if we want to engage in the smaller scale or we've just begun our journey into the land of pentests and ethical hacking? Cognifide has prepared a cheat sheet that everyone can use! Just print it and pin it on the wall so it’s always in the range of your eye, ready to use when you need it.

The cheat sheet has proved its practicality during Software Testing World Cup 2014 in which Cognifide Explorers (Radek Lawgmin, Michał Krzyżanowski, Ludwik Kaźmierczak and Łukasz Morawski) participated - we hope to share our experience from that event shortly.

The cheat sheet contains some useful information on conducting basic security checks against XSS, SQL injection and Authentication. Feel free to share it.
