Finding Your Way: Mitigating File Path Traversal Risks


Join Jim Manico for a 30-minute live training session presented in a friendly classroom environment. Book your seat today and step up your secure coding game! There will be an on-demand recording available after the live session.

File path traversal, or directory traversal, is a treacherous adversary, capable of granting attackers unauthorized access to sensitive files. Our mission is to shield against this threat through stringent input validation and more, ensuring that user-provided file paths remain confined within their intended directory structures. Combining this with access control measures, such as ACLs and permissions, fortifies our defenses, guiding us safely through the complex terrain of file system security.
