Web Application Security Testing
Web Application Testing
A web application is a software application that runs on a web server. These are similar to desktop software in that they have a user login, graphical user interface (GUI), perform tasks, and store data. Everything from your online banking site to your favorite shopping site is a web application.
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are software intermediaries that allow two applications to talk to each other. APIs can be fairly simple, such as the one you use to check the weather on your phone, or extremely complicated, such as your banking app pulling data on your accounts from the bank's systems.
