Hands-On Oracle Application Express Security - now available in a wide range of eBook formats

Our new ebook about APEX security "Hands-On Oracle Application Express Security: Building Secure APEX Applications" is now available from a wide range of online stores:
Our book takes a lead-by-example approach to demonstrate attacks against security vulnerabilities in APEX applications. We show the reader how simple mistakes can open up risks in APEX applications, and then guide them through using simple "hacker" techniques to exploit the issues. The reader is then shown the correct way to secure their application so such exploitation is not possible. The book also covers Access Control, Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection and the APEX Item Protection mechanisms.

Many of the examples in the book have been stripped down to be simple, to show the core problems and solutions. We also list some more complex examples taken from real-world applications (suitably anonymised!) to ground the security risks. Explanations of why the fixes are relevant and the impact of attacks are also included.

We hope our examples and explanations help APEX developers create secure applications.
