OWASP AppSensor Project/Preventing Automated Attacks
Preventing Automated Attacks - This project will be a study of current techniques to thwart automated attacks against application. Within this project we will identify and evaluate various automated attacks that face applications and the current defensive practices to mitigate these risks. The deliverable will be well documented knowledge and best practices.
The format of this page will evolve as the material and structure takes form.
