Abstract—Security of any web-application is very important due to its excessive use in daily routine life (such as business, education, health etc). The advancement of technology raises a question mark to the security of any web-application. Serious attacks on web-application can cause an exposure of sensitive data or provide access to the system on which an application is stored and maintained. This paper aims to identify 3-tier defense mechanism of any web-application. Defense mechanism acts as a baseline for the classification of all possible flaws which make a web-application inaccessible. This paper also refers to the exploitation of flaws, found during classification phase, in order to make uncomplicated and resourceful techniques for the avoidance of security threats. These techniques develop reliability and trust-ability on web-applications.
