Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Least privilege, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Security.
…In this chapter, we will discuss general security principles.…These principles are the foundation for the specific…issues that we'll talk about in later chapters.…If new technologies emerge in the future that aren't specifically included…in our later discussions, these core principles can still guide you.…They're fundamental to all of security.…We're going to start by talking about the principle of least privilege.…Think about your house or your apartment.…Who do you give keys to?…Maybe you give keys to a family member,…your next door neighbor, or to a trusted friend.…
But you wouldn't give keys to all of your family,…or all of your neighbors, or all of your friends.…We get this intuitively, and we take this access to our personal property seriously.…Yet somehow, when we move to the abstraction of…the online world, we don't take access as seriously.…Too often, we grant access to everyone in…the organization equally, and we let them all access…whatever they like.…We assume that because they're all friendly, they wouldn't do us harm.…
