Browser Validation

The Web server is responsible for securing data from prying eyes as it traverses the Internet to the browser. However, the Web server cannot guarantee the integrity of the data exchanged between the client and the back-end system. Hackers can still compromise sites running SSL. Because it is the doorway to the back-end systems, protecting the site from these attacks is ColdFusion's job.

Cross-site scripting, tampered-with form and URL values, and contaminated file uploads are social engineering methods used by hackers and script bunnies to attack your site. Validating all browser input is the most effective panacea for these attacks. ColdFusion provides several functions and tags as useful countermeasures. These countermeasures should be a fundamental part of every methodology for securing ColdFusion applications.
