Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Smart logging, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Security.
…There is a different between protection and detection.…You need both to have security.…Logging can play an important role in detection.…At the very least, it provides a trail of…clues after an incident to help establish what happened.…It can help you leave from your…mistakes and prevent future, possibly even worse incidents.…At its best, it can help you prevent incidents in the first place.…The logging isn't all good. It can also be a security liability if…you aren't careful, so we need to be smart about it, both in…terms of what we choose to log and in how we do it.…
There are three main things that you ought to be logging.…You ought to be logging any errors that occur.…And that way, you have the ability to…go back and fix those errors in your application.…You should log any sensitive actions.…Such as logging in, maybe exporting files, deleting database records, those would all…be sensitive actions that we would want to know about as they happened, and…then possible attacks.…Anything that looks suspicious we would want to log as well.…
