What you will learn
Your application written in Java and C# works as intended, so you are done, right? But did you consider feeding in incorrect values? 16Gbs of data? A null? An apostrophe? Negative numbers, or specifically -1 or -2^31? Because that’s what the bad guys will do – and the list is far from complete.
Handling security needs a healthy level of paranoia, and this is what this course provides: a strong emotional engagement by lots of hands-on labs and stories from real life, all to substantially improve code hygiene. Mistakes, consequences, and best practices are our blood, sweat and tears.
The curriculum goes through the common Web application security issues following the OWASP Top Ten but goes far beyond it both in coverage and the details.All this is put in the context of the discussed programming languages, and extended by core programming issues, discussing security pitfalls of the used frameworks.
So that you are prepared for the forces of the dark side.
So that nothing unexpected happens.
The class did not only discuss the whole idea of security but is also helpful in planning the whole system together with how people would create applications from scratch. Pretty much useful since a lot of developers who start a project do not focus on security in the architecture phase but just specifications. Very useful in the long run.
