Video Tutorial on Analyzing Cookies

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

This video is a follow up on my written documentation of using Webscarab to analyze session ID’s. This video walks through the Altoro Mutual web application, demo application set up by WatchFire, showing which cookies are weak and which cookies are strong. It’s very important to have strong cookies because cookies keep information about your account on that particular application. If an application has weak cookies then your account could be compromised revealing sensitive information about yourself. Hopefully this video will show you how to analyze the strength of cookies for an application that you use. As always please let me know if I screwed up somewhere in the video or if you have an idea for a better approach, I’d love to hear from others.

    The Player for all videos is broken again. Can you fix it please?

    I know it’s broken but have been lazy, give me about a week and let me get it back up and running. If nothing else I’ll move the content to Vimeo and share the link in the post. Thanks for keeping me honest.
