Website Vulnerability Test
I will be building a website using Microsoft Visual Studio Professional. The website will be fully functional and will include a database which will use Microsoft server 2005. The website will be based on a fraternity web system.
The database will be a simple one and will only include three tables (Region, Chapter, Member). You will be able to log on using a user name and password . There will be features so that you can add and remove members, update chapter info and add new regions.
I will be using CSS style sheets to give the website a more rich feel. Microsoft Visual Studio allows you to incorporate CCS style sheets in your web project and I though that it would be good to have a richer content instead of using plain HTML. I am not that familiar with CSS or Microsoft Visual Studio so I am learning as I go along.
I was introduced to ASP.Net MVC (Model View Controller) approach to web development last week in my C Sharp class and I decided that I will use this in my research project.
I have mapped out my database, started the implementation of the CSS style sheet and began to add new methods to my Controller In order to further manipulate my database.
I have been reading and watching videos provided by ASP.net that have helped me to progress, and I have also taken some tutorials online for Visual Studio which have also helped.
I have come across a lot of reading material that helped me with connecting the database to my webpage.
Tomcat web server is a light weight local web server that can be used to run web applications locally. Once I have completed my web project I will run it locally to do some Web site vulnerability testing.

The main purpose of this project was to test security vulnerabilities in websites. I do not host a website so I had to do some research to figure out how to build one.
Once my web site project is complete I will be using Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner to test my web site for possible vulnerabilities. Acunetix WVS automatically checks your web applications for SQL Injection, XSS & other web vulnerabilities.
I wanted to try to use some other products but they were not free.
