The University of Cambridge’s Central Web Authentication System (Raven) – Attacks and Countermeasures. Central to the functioning of this service is the Web Application Agent (WAA) to Web Login Service (WLS) protocol. We will briefly discuss some vulnerabilities discovered in WAAs implementing this protocol, the potentially significant threat impact, and how these vulnerabiltiies might stem from the design of the protocol itself. We will also look at some simple vulnerabilities exhibited by well-known University web applications, and look at how the University might plan to better defend itself against cyber attacks in the future.
