Hack Proofing XML

XML is quickly becoming the universal protocol for transferring information from site to site via HTTP. Whereas HTML will continue to be the language for displaying documents on the Internet, developers will find new and interesting ways to harness the power of XML to transmit, exchange, and manipulate data using XML. Validation of the XML document and of the messages going to that document is the first line of defense in hack proofing XML. The same properties that make XML a powerful language for defining data across systems make it vulnerable to attacks. More important, since many firewalls will pass XML data without filtering, a poorly constructed and invalidated document can constitute a serious system-level vulnerability. Hack Proofing® XML will show you the ins and outs of XML and .NET security.

Developing .NET Web Services with XML

The Complete Guide to Developing Web Services with XML.

Web Services provide a new level of interaction to all kinds of applications. The ability to access and use a remote Web Service to perform a function within an application enables programmers to quickly deliver more sophisticated applications in less time. Programmers no longer have to create and maintain all functions of an application. Reusability is also greatly enhanced by creating multiple Web Services that perform functions in multiple applications, thus freeing up time and resources to work on other aspects of specific projects.

XML .NET Developer's Guide

With the development of Microsoft's .NET initiative, industry experts are predicting a new dawn in the age of web development and services. This new strategy specifically addresses the need for common ways to develop server-based applications whose clients can be any system that has Internet access. By using .NET technologies and practices, developers can build solutions that aggregate services from all over the Internet. This promises to save time and money in development, promote the growth of new technology partnerships, and extend what's currently possible for Internet applications.

The .NET Framework has the potential to transform the Internet from a collection of isolated Web sites into e-business networks in which companies can more easily form alliances to deliver personalized services to customers. The Microsoft .NET programming model is designed to allow the integration and interoperability of any group of resources on the Internet into one single solution. Making all of this possible is the World Wide Web Consortium's Extensible Markup Language (XML).

Often touted as the new 'lingua franca' of the internet, XML will allow developers to free information from its presentational prison and give their site and services a new flexibility. Developers will be able to present information that can be organized, programmed and edited while ensuring that this information is efficiently distributed to a variety of digital devices. The .NET framework uses XML to achieve greater flexibility of information and increased interoperability. This book will show developers how to implement XML within the .NET framework.
