Hunchentoot Webserver and Application Security

December 22, 2010

I had the opportunity to have the security of the Hunchentoot lisp web server set-up, from the previous post, and a web application using Hunchentoot reviewed by a reputable firm. In short this is what they had to say:

“it would appear that the server administrators should be commended for their network-level hardening of the target system”

Its not a hundred percent clean bill of health because only automated testing was used with some manual interventions to validate the auto testing.
