Web security, application security, browser security, Web application security, Ajax security, etc. We have an environment of very terribly confusing nomenclature. I’m hoping with to use this diagram as visual aide to better describe the Web Security landscape. Hopefully this will also allow us to use terminology a little bit more accurately (of which I am an offender). Talk about a lot to know, there are worlds of data within each bubble.
I think this is a useful and thought provoking visualization. To borrow from Raffael Marty's "A picture is worth a thousand log entries.", I believe this visualization may lend to illuminating the "worlds of data" and "confusing nomenclature" in a fashion more easily consumed by a general audience.
Thanks Russ, much appreciated. Sometimes things get so complicated its becomes worthwhile to spend a moment and paint a picture. Having small children to educate has helped me develop these skills.
Excellent. I like it. However, does copyright mean that we can use this diagram to champion the cause wherever we 'hang our shingle' as long as we keep the copyright reference in the diagram?
Thanks. The copyright notice I tossed in so people could know where it originally came from. As long as the notice remains, its completely free to use... just like all my other pretty pictures. :)
Nice picture, but you've forgotten the "user" bubble...
That would fall under the Web Browser / Client bubble
What about client apps? They also fall under the Application Security umbrella.
I wanted to focus solely on "Web Security" area in context of the larger "Application Security." Client apps would seem to fall outside of that scope.
