Credits: N/A

Course Description:
Both Java and .NET development environments provide powerful means for security development, but developers should know how to apply the various architecture- and coding-level programming techniques in order to implement the desired security functionality and avoid vulnerabilities.
Providing hands-on knowledge, the course contains numerous exercises on how to use various APIs and tools to prevent untrusted code from performing privileged actions, protect resources through strong authentication and authorization, provide secured remote procedure calls, handle sessions, introduce different implementations for certain functionality, and many more.
Most importantly, the course explains the most frequent and severe programming flaws typically committed by programmers. General web-based vulnerabilities are demonstrated through presenting the relevant attacks, while the recommended coding techniques and mitigation methods are explained in the context of both development platforms. Besides the typical security-relevant Java and .NET bugs, the introduced security vulnerabilities cover both language-specific issues and problems stemming from the runtime environments one should be aware of. All vulnerabilities and the relevant attacks are demonstrated through easy-to-understand exercises, followed by the recommended coding guidelines and the possible mitigation techniques.

Learning Objectives:
Individuals certified at this level will have demonstrated:
● Understand basic concepts of security, IT security, cryptography and secure coding
● Learn Web vulnerabilities beyond OWASP Top Ten and know how to avoid them
● Learn client-side vulnerabilities and secure coding practices
● Learn to use various security features of the Java and .NET development environment
● Get information about some recent vulnerabilities in Java and .NET framework
● Learn about typical coding mistakes and how to avoid them
● Get practical knowledge in using security testing tools
● Get sources and further reading on secure coding practices

I liked the practical training and insights into vulnerabilities and the mitigation, as well as the explanation of cryptography.
