AJAX Security


Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on AJAX. In this tutorial post, we are going to be discussing about AJAX Security.

We are going to be discussing about AJAX security on the server-side and after that we will move further to discuss about it on the client-side.

AJAX Security - Server Side

  • AJAX-based web applications make use of the same server-side security schemes of regular web applications.
  • You specify authentication, authorization, and data protection requirements in your web.xml file (declarative) or in your program (programmatic).
  • AJAX-based web applications are subject to the same security threat as regular web applications.


AJAX Security - Client Side

  • JavaScript code is visible to a user/hacker. Hackers can use JavaScript code to infer server-side weaknesses.
  • JavaScript code is downloaded from the server and executed at the client and can compromise the client by mal-intended code.
  • Downloaded JavaScript code is constrained by the sand-box security model and can be relaxed for signed JavaScript.


Alright guys! This is where we are going to be rounding up for this tutorial post. In our next tutorial, we are going to be discussing about AJAX Issues
