The SANS Institute:Protecting Federal Systems Against Advanced Persistent Threats

In today's multilayered attacks against government systems, one of the key entry points is through web applications, according to multiple reports. These attacks often start by targeting low hanging fruit, including layer 7 DoS, SQL injections, cross-site-scripting and other vulnerabilities known to exist in web applications.

This SANS Institute white paper discusses the layered threats that take advantage of weak points in applications and their users, the complexities involved with managing multiple applications under today's fast development cycles and complex threat landscape, and provides advice on how to set policies to develop secure applications and protect against unknown as well as known threats throughout the application's lifetime.
