Security has always been a vital research topic since the birth of web application. A great deal of research has been conducted to determine the ways of identifying and classifying security issues or goals However, in the recent years, it has been noticed that high secure web applications have less durability; thus reducing their business continuity. High security features of a web application are worthless unless they provide effective services to the user and meet the standards of commercial viability. Hence, there is a need to bridge the gap between security and durability of the web application. Indeed, security mechanisms must be used to improve security as well as the durability of the web application. Although security and durability are not related directly, some of their attributes impact each other indirectly. Attributes play a key role in reducing the void between security and durability. In this respect, the present study identifies the main factors of security and durability that affect each other directly and indirectly, including confidentiality, integrity availability, human trust and trustworthiness. The importance of all the attributes in terms of their weight is essential for their impact on the overall security during the web application development process. To evaluate the efficacy of our work, we used the Hesitant Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (H-Fuzzy AHP). The results of our investigations and conclusions will be a useful reference for the web application developers in achieving a more secure and durable web application.
