4 Reasons Why Web Security Testing Is Hard

Securing web applications is incredibly complex. You need to ensure the security of each individual service. Furthermore, you also need to secure the complex interaction in between. Developers who want to secure their web services face a case full of challenges.

1. Complex API Testing

Open web APIs and microservice architecture are constantly evolving, which implies an increased attack surface and thus a growing demand for security testing to keep up.

2. Domain-Specific Vulnerabilities

In web applications, certain bugs are particularly common. The OWASP organization regularly ranks the 10 most dangerous web vulnerabilities.

3. Language Specific Vulnerabilities

Contrary to popular belief, memory-safe languages are not inherently safe. It's important to properly test your memory-safe applications.

4. Usability and CI/CD Integration

Open-source tools for automated security testing are sometimes difficult to integrate into an existing development environment. But enterprise solutions, like the CI Fuzz testing platform, can help developers to apply coverage-guided fuzz testing to their microservice environment.
