OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project)
OWAS P , short for Open Web Application Security Project, is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the security of web applications and software. The organization is comprised of a community of security professionals, developers, and experts to focus on identifying, mitigating, and raising awareness about security risks and vulnerabilities that can affect web-based technologies.

Secure Enclave
A secure enclave is a hardware-based security feature that provides a secure environment for sensitive data and operations. It is designed to protect sensitive information and prevent unauthorized access even if the rest of the system is compromised. Secure enclaves are commonly found in modern mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, and are used to protect sensitive information such as b
Principle of Least Privilege
Also known as "least user privilege," this is a security principle implemented into access policy which states that a user or system process should only have the minimum level of access necessary to perform its intended functions. The idea behind least privilege is to reduce the risk of security breaches by limiting the damage that can be done by an attacker or by a malicious or malfunctioning pro
Access Token
An access token is a string of characters that represents authorization to access a particular resource, such as an API or a specific piece of content in a system. Access tokens are generated by an authentication server and are then passed to the client application, which uses them to access the authorized resources. Access tokens are typically short-lived, and may need to be refreshed after a cer
Authorization refers to the process of determining what actions an authenticated user, device, or system is allowed to perform on a particular resource (e.g. files, data, systems). This process helps to ensure that users are only able to access the resources that they need to perform their work, and that sensitive information and systems are protected from unauthorized access and modification. Aut
Single Sign-On (SSO)
Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication method that enables users to access multiple applications or services with a single set of credentials (username and password). Instead of having to log in to each individual service separately, SSO provides a centralized authentication mechanism, which verifies the user's identity once and then grants access to all authorized services and applications. SS
Zero Trust
Zero trust is a cybersecurity model that assumes that all users and devices within a network are potential threats, regardless of their location or whether they have been granted access to the network in the past. The goal of zero trust is to prevent data breaches, cyber attacks, and other security incidents by implementing strict access controls that are based on continuous monitoring and authent
Access Control
Access control in cybersecurity refers to the methods and technologies used to regulate who or what is allowed to access sensitive information and resources in a computer system or network. The goal of access control in cybersecurity is to ensure that sensitive information and resources are protected against unauthorized access, misuse, or modification. Access control in cybersecurity can be imple
