Identifying Web Developer Awareness of Attack Attempts

Hello #DEVCommunity!
Get involved in making web applications self-defending and attack-aware. Our research aims to identify roadblocks in the integration of attack detection and response capabilities.

Most attacker activities involve a probing phase in which an attacker attempts to discover exploitable vulnerabilities. As many of such attack attempts could be detected while validating an application's input, the goal of our survey is to identify whether developers understand attack indicators and how they can be best supported in building detectors for such indicators.

Participation Requirements

Are you of legal age (18+) and have experience in web development or have developed applications using web technologies? Then participate in our survey and support us with your professional insights.

Survey Details

The survey is questionnaire-based and consists of three sections:

  • In the first section, you will be asked questions on your experience with security controls and input validation.

  • The second section consists of questions that will identify whether you can detect attack indicators.

  • In the last section, you will be asked some general questions such that we can link you and your answers to a specific developer profile.

The survey can be accessed here:

Feel free to get in touch with me should you have any questions or require further information. You can find my contact details on my personal website.

Your participation is appreciated and will support our goal of developing a pragmatic and usable attack-awareness integration solution. You are more than welcome to share this survey with your developer friends and colleagues.
