Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing: Case Study On Web Application Security, Gazmend Krasniqi, Veton Bejtullahu Oct 2018

Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing: Case Study On Web Application Security, Gazmend Krasniqi, Veton Bejtullahu

UBT International Conference

Complexity of information systems are increasing day by day. The security of information systems that are connected to public networks can be compromised by unauthorized, and usually anonymous, attempts to access them. By using public networks businesses and other institutions are exposed to numerous risks. This leads to more and more vulnerabilities in Information Systems. This situation calls for test methods that are devised from the attacker’s perspective to ensure that test conditions are as realistic as possible. In this paper we will describe complete stages of Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing on some systems in UBT and proactive ...

The Research and Scholarship Symposium (2013-2019)

Technology is a cornerstone of modern society. Unfortunately, it seems that every new piece of technology is accompanied by five computer-security breaches elsewhere. Most people associate hacks with Windows computers. This is a problem because Apple computers, and other non-Windows systems, are also extremely vulnerable to attacks and risk being compromised. Dolos is a piece of malware we developed intended to exploit the macOS Sierra operating system. It provides a framework for running exploits and comes built in with certain control and data exfiltration capabilities. Dolos also helps destroy the misconception of "the impenetrable Macintosh computer" by showing that Apple ...


Security Assessment Of Web Applications, Renelada Kushe Oct 2017

Security Assessment Of Web Applications, Renelada Kushe

UBT International Conference

A web application is an application that is accessed by users over a network such as the internet or intranet. The term also refers an application that is coded in a browser-supported programming language and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable. Web applications are vulnerable to varies exploits from those which manipulate the application via its graphical web interface (HTTP exploits), to tampering the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) or tampering HTTPS elements not contained in the URI. Getting started from the accessibility and the variety of exploits, the security assessment is a necessity for providing ...

Web Application Penetration Testing, Besnik Qehaja, Gazmend Krasniqi, Ardian Bajraliu, Amet Shabani

UBT International Conference

Safety of information is needed either in private sector or business for protection from market with competitive secrets or only for privacy. Advantages of internet and web applications is that they are accessible from everyone, but in business word data should be safe, reliable accessible. Although these are not new problems and always had different solutions to these problems, we always need to be on the cutting edge with new attacks that appear every day and to try to achieve a greater security. In this paper we present some of the most dangerous forms of risk which are risking web ...


Authentication In Saas By Implementing Double Security Measures, Muhamet Gërvalla, Shkëlqim Berisha Nov 2014

Authentication In Saas By Implementing Double Security Measures, Muhamet Gërvalla, Shkëlqim Berisha

UBT International Conference

Growing trends of services offered in the field of Cloud Computing are increasing on daily basis. These services are divided into three models: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Despite this, much interest is shown to the usage of Software as a Service (SaaS) model. This model offers the usage of software’s that are hosted in Cloud that can be accessed by using web browsers or through “thin client”. Security and privacy are two most important problems that can occur in this model. Authentication through password is one of ...
