Among other things, this document describes a computer-implemented security method such as for authenticated selection of security countermeasures and for reliable identification of computing devices. The method can include receiving, by a computing system, a request from a computing device for an electronic resource. The computing system can identify a security token received from the device that made the request. Based on the security token, particular security countermeasures can be selected that are to be applied to the electronic resource to be served in response to the request. The countermeasures can be operable to interfere with an ability of malware to interact with the served electronic resource when the served electronic resource is on the computing device. Portions of the electronic resource that are to be executed on the computing device can be re-coded using the selected particular security countermeasures.

A computer-implemented method for securing a content server system is disclosed. The method includes identifying that a request has been made by a client computing device for serving of content from the content server system; serving, to the client computing device and for execution on the client computing device, reconnaissance code that is programmed to determine whether the client computing device is human-controlled or bot-controlled; receiving, from the reconnaissance code, data that indicates whether the client computing device is human-controlled or bot-controlled; and serving follow-up content to the client computing device, wherein the make-up of the follow-up content is selected based on a determination of whether the client computing device is human-controlled or bot-controlled.

This document describes, among other things, a computer-implemented method for improving the security of one or more computing systems. The method can include receiving, at a computing system, first code that defines at least a portion of an electronic resource that is to be served to a client computing device. The method can include generating code that defines a challenge to be solved by the client computing device, in which the code is arranged to cause the client computing device to determine values for one or more parameters that comprise a solution to the challenge, and the values for the one or more parameters that comprise the solution to the challenge may be required for the client computing device to make valid requests to initiate one or more web-based transactions. The computing system can determine whether particular values for the parameters comprise a valid solution to the challenge.

An app interacts with a human user of a user device that is executing the app while the app is also interacting over a network connection to an API server by making API calls to the API server and using the responses. An intermediary is provided between the API server and user devices/clients that modifies application programming interface interactions to disrupt automated attacks on those client-server interactions, at least as to those API interfaces that are known to be human-interaction API interfaces. The human-interaction API calls are disassociated to thwart automated attacks using those API calls. The disassociation can be provided through the use of user interface builder packages to provide instructions to the app as to performing human user interaction. Disassociating can be done by separating labels from their meaning, such as by assigning random values to the labels or other methods of obfuscating relations and structure.
