Web security made easy

There's more to building a Web application than just creating forms and connecting them to a database. When you're building a database-driven Web service, security should be your first concern.

Appropriately, Alpha Five version 8 includes a new Security Framework, which ensures security is considered at every level of your Web application. With this new tool set, you don't have to guess at security, reinvent the wheel, or spend months becoming a security guru. Rather, you leverage Alpha Five's Security Framework for robust, flexible, and persistent security.

Even so, many Alpha developers are new to Web development (as are many developers in general). To help them, I recently finished a white paper that reviews the most popular methods for Web application user registration and login. It also serves as a primer on securing your Internet-based applications.

Not all of the functionality covered in the white paper is native to Alpha's Security Framework (such as the registration scenarios and some of the tracking processes). However, all the tools needed to build these scenarios are included in A5V8.

I aimed to make this white paper a guide for both Alpha and non-Alpha users. So, even if you're not an Alpha programmer, you should still find the information of value. And if you haven’t taken a look at Alpha Five, do yourself a favor and give it a spin. It really does make building Web applications easier!
