Revision with unchanged content. Web applications are not protected by today's network level firewalls, because they allow access to TCP port 80 without restrictions. However, many successful attacks today are not on the network level, but on application level. For protecting against application level attacks, a firewall must understand the application protocols, that are used on its open ports. This happens in application level firewalls and for Web application in Web application firewalls. The underlying concepts of Web application firewalls differ much from the concepts of traditional network level firewalls. This book explains the underlying concepts of Web application firewalls. Afterwards, they are applied to a collection of security requirements, that application developers should respect today for developing a secure Web application. A Web application firewall is capable of automatically implementing many of these requirements. As a result, Web application developers can ignore these requirements, because the Web applications firewall already ensures their implementation and therefore the security of the Web application. This book is intended for anyone, who is interested in securing his Web application.

Usually CFS is prepared at the end of period using income statement and beginning – ending balance sheets. However, we think that also it can be produced independent of balance sheets and income statement using parallel accounts for this purpose, which will be more useful. Since the transactions occurred during period are recorded depending on the accrual basis; we can not prepare a CFS depending on the Adjusted trial balance as we depend for preparation of Balance Sheet & Income Statement. Therefore, we should take the income statement for the period and beginning & ending balance sheets to prepare a CFS for the period. Our view is that it will be useful for managers to receive the CFS directly from the accounting system as we do for other financial statements instead of depending income statement & balance sheet together with some estimation usually needed when we prepare CFS at the end of accounting period. If CFS is to be prepared directly from the accounting system, then it is compulsory to follow a different method for recording the transactions during period. Therefore the starting point of our approach is to develop such a method.

Application security encompasses measures taken throughout the application’s life-cycle to prevent exceptions in the security policy of an application or the underlying system (vulnerabilities) through flaws in the design, development, deployment, upgrade, or maintenance of the application. Applications only control the use of resources granted to them, and not which resources are granted to them. They, in turn, determine the use of these resources by users of the application through application security.

Value added is a concept used in accounting and economics literatuer with a very close meaning. It signifies the value added by a company or a country during a certain period and thus very important for evaluation of performance. Conventional income statement doesn't report this and thus in UK, the practice of value added reporting starts with the publication of The Corporate Report. Later on, the concept of value added gained so popularity that companies in different countries started to publish value added statement voluntarily. The statement has two parts: first part deals with value creation and the second part deals with the distribution of same. Later on, expanded value added statements, a special form of value added reporting, has emerged to accomodate social and environmental reporting within the mainstream framework. Such incorporation increases the scope and utility of the statement. However, such statement is not a mendatory requirement, goes to the discretion of management where to publish or not. This monograph covers the theory behind value added, its reporting and regulatory issues.
Banks play important roles in promoting national development.

In Nigeria, the Statement of Accounting Standards (SAS) such as accounting by banks and non-banks financial institutions (SAS10) and accounting for employees’ retirement benefits (SAS8), Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) and the Central Bank of Nigeria’s directives and regulations provide guidelines to banks in the preparation and presentation of the records of their financial transactions. In recent time, some Nigerian banks appear to be engaging in non-standardized and unprofessional practices, which could lead to distress and liquidation. The objectives of this study therefore are to: (i.) assess the level of Nigerian banks’ compliance with statement of accounting standards as established by the Nigerian Accounting Standards Board, (ii.) examine the performance of Nigerian banks over a period of time and (iii.) appraise the relationship between level of compliance with Statement of Accounting Standards and performance of Nigerian banks.
