Peer Teaching is the one of the best way, to masterize a particular subject. Mr.S.R.Aathithyan (Roll No : 20240) & Ms.A.Yuvasree(Roll No : 20239) from II B.Sc CS (SSS) shared their knowledge about “Cross Site Scripting” on 14/09/2021 from 11.30 am to 12.30pm. They handled the session for the course Cryptography (Course Code : 20CS301).
The cross site scripting was illustrated by them with the help of PortSwigger Web Security Academy to all their classmates. Cross-site scripting is a type of security vulnerability typically found in web applications. XSS attacks enable the attackers to inject client-side scripts into web pages viewed by other users. Both the students clearly explained how the attacks are done using XSS and how to avoid these kind of vulnerabilities.
They also shared the purpose of cryptographic algorithms in ensuring security in web application. Totally 51 students from II B.Sc CS(SSS) got benefitted from this peer teaching session.
After the peer teaching session, all the students were instructed to practise the same by using XSS.
