Application Protection for JavaScript

Ability to write code once that can run anywhere makes JavaScript widely popular. JavaScript powers a multitude of app, open source UI, and game frameworks, servers, terminal-based workflow tools, animation libraries, and many other applications. JavaScript is supported by every major browser and is the only web programming language built for both client-side and server-side. However, the fact that the code is stored as clear text files makes JavaScript applications vulnerable to security risks. Encryption alone will not help, it requires fundamentally a different approach to address security risks inherent in JavaScript applications.

JavaScript is vulnerable to reverse-engineering and tampering attacks. Attackers can use these attack techniques to realize the following pervasive threats:

  • IP, keys, and runtime data can be easily stolen
  • Business logic can be used to create patches & knock-offs
  • Understanding the functionality and app/server protocols can help enable backend attacks
  • Defacing and brand damaging attacks can be enacted where 0-day or new system vulnerabilities are discovered
