Chapter 8. Security

Web site security usually comes at the cost of performance, but not always. Some security changes can also increase performance. For example, keeping a site simple and avoiding Java and JavaScript means fewer points of weakness. Also, avoiding Microsoft’s IIS web server will likely improve performance while eliminating vulnerability to a large number of viruses that can infect only IIS.

In this chapter, I cover a few security points only as they relate to performance. If you are looking for pure security information, try Practical Unix and Internet Security, by Simpson Garfinkel and Gene Spafford (O’Reilly Media).
