Protection to SQL Injection Attack using Web Service

S.P. Shwetha, Meera Francis


Information is the highest valuable business treasure in current surroundings and acquiring a desired level of information security. SQL injection attacks are one of the primary hazards for web application security. To provide protection to the databases from inside or outside, it is suggested to monitor the access of sensitive databases. The fear of SQL injection attacks has become progressively familiar and serious. In order to overcome this problem “Protection to SQL Injection Attacks using Web Service” is proposed. Here the input given by the user will be sent to web service. This web service will check for the SQL injection commands. If it is present then it will warn the user or modify the input given by the user. This web service is globally available. The advantage of using our web service is to provide protection for SQL injection attacks.
