Why penetration of XML Web Services Based is essential?
In web applications, the security can be assured by the use of different penetration testing tools. Nevertheless, compared to prominent attacks such as SQL-Injection or Cross-site scripting (XSS), there is currently no penetration testing tools that are capable of analyzing the security of XML interfaces.
The threat of XML-based attacks has significantly increased. Besides web services, Single Sign-On systems are also attackable as latest researches have revealed this the necessity of an automatic penetration testing tool.
How we do it??
By implementing common web applications, our developers evaluate the security of their systems by applying different penetration testing tools. However, in comparison to the well known attacks as SQL injection or Cross Site Scripting, there exists no penetration testing tools for Web Services specific attacks.
Lots of XML-specific attacks exist and are known for a long time. Below table gives us an overview on currently published attacks.
