Sessions

I'm an experienced programmer, but new to Rails.

I would like to echo an unanswered question I've recently read
elsewhere.

Can any recommend an overview of get/post, cookies, sessions, etc.,
and how Ruby on Rails interacts with all of this?

I'm interested in understanding how to harden a Rails application

Regards

Read “Agile Development with Rails” by the God of Rails, David Heinemeier Hansson. Or anything he has written. Doesn’t get any better.

I would start by reading the HTTP RFC(s).

Do you need to? The framework already plugs a lot of common loopholes
(provided the app doesn't do stupid things). See if Rails is already
doing what you need.

Also check out http://www.rorsecurity.info .

Best,

Read "Agile Development with Rails" by the God of Rails, David Heinemeier
Hansson. Or anything he has written. Doesn't get any better.

Thanks, yes I've read chapter 26: Securing Your Rails Application.

I would start by reading the HTTP RFC(s).

Yes
