Over recent times there have been a number of highly public attacks on well-known corporations via their web applications. While many companies focus intensely on security of their networks, through facilities such as firewalls and encryption technology, they often leave their deployed web application quite vulnerable to attack through their choice of architecture, design and implementation. Frequently web applications are prone to simple exploits which could be easily prevented through better input validation
Course Prerequisites :
This course assumes an understanding of Web applications vulnerabilities. SANS SEC519/SEC419 course (Web Application Security Workshop) or equivalent is highly recommended.
Intended Audience :
This course is appropriate for testing, QA, and software development practitioners who are responsible for developing and executing test strategies and plans for functional and non-functional security requirements. This course requires an ability to understand security risk patterns used by attackers. Participants should be comfortable reviewing code as part of their testing activities.
Course Objectives :
After taking course u should be able to :
