Explore potential internal data management issues, the risks associated with them, and learn how to avoid them.
- There are often many data points an application needs…in order to operate successfully.…These data points can be as simple as URLs…and other resources and as complex as encryption keys.…While this data is needed for applications to operate,…in the wrong hands, they can be treacherous to a system.…Let's start our discussion with a common use case…and that is connecting to a remote service.…
Usually, to connect to a remote service,…you need to store the URL…of that service along with the credentials…or tokens needed to consume that service.…That information is needed by your application at runtime.…Serving that data at runtime can be the challenge.…The attack vector associated…with this should be relatively straightforward.…If you expose the data you need for your system to operate,…the attacker can then use…that same data to mimic you to your backend service.…
The attacker can then use the mimic behavior…to manipulate the backend service…and either exploit it or cause it…to make your system exploitable.…Solving these problems are actually very straightforward.…
