Take care of the security of your application or website and the privacy of your customers.
Nowadays it is essential that you take care of the security of your web site or your application so that they are protected against the latest types of attacks and vulnerabilities, which are becoming more and more widespread by blackhat hackers and can generate big problems for your business and your users.
There is no magic formula, and configuring the security of your web site involves study for the correct implementation of various security settings, which according to each case can put web security at its maximum.
Below I describe some of the most commonly used configurations recommended by international standards. If you have any questions, contact us and we will help you find the right solution for your case.
All websites and applications today must use the HTTPS protocol to ensure greater security and privacy of data traveling between the server and the client. Ensuring that your website or application complies with current security recommendations, guaranteeing data integrity, protecting against attacks (such as man-in-the-middle) and also bringing speed benefits, creating greater confidence for your users.
Content Security Policy
We configure your web site or application to ensure that it complies with the latest HSTS recommendations. HSTS ensures that users connect only over secure HTTPS connections, even if they have chosen the non-secure HTTP protocol. Recommended for all websites that use the HTTPS protocol.
Content Security Policy
All cookies should be set with the "secure flag" and set as restrictively as possible. This can help minimize the damage from cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, as these cookies often contain session identifiers or other sensitive information.
When a user navigates to a website via a hyperlink or a website loads an external resource, browsers inform the destination website of the origin of requests through the use of the HTTP Referer header. While this can be useful for many purposes, it can also put users' privacy at risk. Setting a Referrer policy allows sites to have refined control over how and when browsers transmit the HTTP Referer header.
X-Content-Type-Options is a header supported by Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox 50+ that says not to load scripts and stylesheets unless the server indicates the correct MIME type. Without this header, these browsers can incorrectly detect files as scripts and stylesheets, leading to XSS attacks. Therefore, all websites should set the X-Content-Type-Options header and the appropriate MIME types for the files they advertise.
X-Frame-Options is an HTTP header that allows websites to control how their website can be framed in an iframe. Clickjacking is a practical attack that allows malicious websites to trick users into clicking on links on your site, even if they do not appear to be on your site. As such, the use of the X-Frame-Options header is mandatory for all new sites, and all existing sites should add support for X-Frame-Options as soon as possible.
