Abstract
Web Applications form an integral part of our day-to-day life. Most of the customers prefer online services instead of in-person services as it is easier for the customers. The number of attacks on websites are increasing at an alarming rate and the individuals are compromising for the security of the data. With the advent of social networking and e-commerce, web security attacks such as phishing and spamming have become quite common. The consequences of these attacks are ruthless. Hence, providing increased amount of security for the users and their data becomes essential. Most important vulnerability as described in top 10 web security issues by Open Web Application Security Project is SQL Injection Attack (SQLIA). This paper focuses on how the cryptographic encryption technique can be employed to improve password strengthening and testing for enhanced cyber security in web based applications.. In this technique attackers inject malicious code through user inputs and gain access to database. For a hacker to modify a database, details such as field and table names are required. So, we try to propose a solution to the above problem by preventing it using a encryption algorithm. It has better performance and provides increased security in comparison to the existing solutions.
