Authors: Mohammed Ali Hussain

Electronic Commerce (Ecommerce) refers to the buying and selling of goods and services via electronic channels, primarily the Internet. The applications of E- commerce includes online book store, e- banking, online ticket reservation(railway, airway, movie, etc.,), buying and selling goods, online funds transfer and so on. During E commerce transactions, confidential information is stored in databases as well communicated through network channels. So security is the main concern in E commerce. E commerce applications are vulnerable to various security threats. This results in the loss of consumer confidence. So we need security tools to counter such security threats. This paper presents an overview of security threats to E commerce applications and the technologies to counter them.
