Part 04 – Common Architectures

After a discussion on development methodologies, we move on to examining common software architectures. This is an important topic with respect to application security and it's a slightly longer section. The architectures we discuss in this video, along with their advantages and risks, are:
  • Distributed computing
  • Terminal services and remote access servers
  • Peer-to-peer architecture
  • SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture)
  • Rich internet applications
We then move on to discuss the threats associated with these architectures in terms of both client-side and server-side threats. It's noted that with ubiquitous computing that threats have grown exponentially. The video concludes with a discussion on the vulnerabilities associated with wireless technologies such as:
  • Wi-Fi
  • NFC
  • LBS (location-based services) e.g. GPS
