Abstract

Rapid movement of financial and business applications towards cloud platforms not only increases mobility and flexibility but also introduces different vulnerability issues. Considering increased transactions and security attacks such as SQL Injection and Cross-site scripting single security breach could harm the reputation as well as the quality of service of a cloud application. Detecting and preventive solution are grouped into two broad categories i.e. third-party tools such as Intrusion Detection System or programming language dependent solution such as AspectJ. This paper proposes Multi-layer Security Framework which enables solution provider to design and develop self-defensive cloud application with respect to SQL Injection as well as cross-site scripting attacks. To defend against SQL Injection and cross-site scripting attacks, MLSF proposes security patterns and malicious script analyzer which is based on similar characters in SQL queries, scripts and user input. The experimental result clearly shows that MLSF not only recognizes attacks but also defend all of them.
Keywords: SQL Injection, cross-site scripting, the Multi-layer security framework
