DevPartner SecurityChecker

Categories: ASP.NET, Security

Author: Compuware

Latest version: 2.5
Added 2006-07-21

Security analysis tool that scans, locates and fixes known and potential security vulnerabilities in ASP.NET applications.
DevPartner SecurityChecker automates detection processes through a combination of runtime, compile-time and integrity analyses that pinpoint the location of vulnerable source code and hard-to-find security problems.

DevPartner SecurityChecker guides you through three distinct operational phases:
- The Discovery phase lets you choose either manual or automatic discovery, specify the solution to be analyzed, choose which types of analysis to use (compile-time, runtime, integrity, or any combination), create a discovery map to define specific portions of the application for analysis (or use an existing one) and start the analysis session.
- The Analysis phase shows you a high-level graph and report of your application’s vulnerabilities, a detailed list of each issue found ranked by severity, an explanation of the vulnerability and its source code, if applicable.
- The Advisor phase provides you with a description, contextual information and a suggested repair for each vulnerability found, including references to trusted sources such as the Microsoft Developer Network, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), CERT and various security publications.

MSINC.Web.Compression

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: Morrison Schwartz

Latest version: 2004-11-17
Added 2005-01-21

Compression of ASP.NET web page output.
This reduction in the amount of data to be transferred to the client results in a decrease in network traffic and corresponding improvement in page load speed. This class supports the Deflate and GZip compression methods, which are acceptable by most web clients in common usage today.
Most browsers now support the HTTP 1.1 standard Accept-Encoding header, informing the server of which types of compression they support.
MSINC.Web.Compression works by inserting a custom HttpModule into the ASP.NET filter stream, which intercepts and compresses the page data according to the received Accept-Encoding header before it leaves the server.
Configuration allows the developer to set the default compression level and compression type, as well as define which pages or MIME types should be excluded.

mod_aspdotnet

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: The Apache Software Foundation

Latest version: 2.0.0
Added 2005-01-07

Apache HTTP Server 2.0 Module for ASP.NET.
mod_aspdotnet is an ASP.NET host interface to Microsoft's ASP.NET engine. It is implemented with an Apache.Web.dll assembly that provides ASP.NET with the necessary System.Web.Host and System.Web.Request interfaces to converse with mod_aspdotnet and the Apache HTTP Server.
mod_aspdotnet works only with the .NET Framework version 1.1 at this time. Flexibility for 1.0 or 2.0 .NET Frameworks is being considered.
This module is not compatible with other .NET CLR interfaces, such as Rotor or Mono, and therefore it is only compatible with the Win32 port of Apache 2.0.
Users on non-Win32 platforms may wish to explore the mono project's implementation of mod_mono, also for Apache HTTP Server, and compatible with some non-Win32 platforms.
