Identifying Weak Session Tokens Using Entropy – Tradecraft Security Weekly #15

August 18, 2017

Session management in web applications is extremely important in regards to securing user credentials and integrity within the application. Sometimes, session tokens can be predicted, provided the overall randomness is weak. If this is possible, a remote attacker may be able to compromise the session of an authenticated user.
