Abstract [en]

Context: With the constantly increasing activity in the internet and its giant rise over the last 18 years, it’s become increasingly important to investigate common problems in web security

Objectives: This thesis is made up of a literature study and a survey. It investigates what the common problems in web security are. It also investigates what the average web developer knows, what they think about the state of web security and what they would change.

Method: A survey was developed to get information about people’s education levels, previous experience with web security and security breaches. As well as to get their opinions about web security and to find out what they would change.

Results: Based on the literature study and survey the thesis finds out what the common problems in web security are as well as what the average web developer knows, think about web security and want to change.

Conclusions: The state of web security in 2018 is not at the level that one might expect, there are several common problems created due to lack of knowledge and the consensus of the people is the same, that the state of web security is sub-par and not to their general satisfaction.
