Securing .Net Web Applications - Lifecycle is a lab-intensive, hands-on .Net security training course, essential for experienced enterprise developers who need to produce secure .Net-based web applications. In addition to teaching basic programming skills, this course digs deep into sound processes and practices that apply to the entire software development lifecycle. In this course, students thoroughly examine best practices for defensively coding .Net web applications, including XML processing and web services. Students will repeatedly attack and then defend various assets associated with a fully-functional web application. This hands-on approach drives home the mechanics of how to secure .Net web applications in the most practical of terms.Security experts agree that the least effective approach to security is "penetrate and patch". It is far more effective to "bake" security into an application throughout its lifecycle. After spending significant time trying to defend a poorly designed (from a security perspective) web application, developers are ready to learn how to build secure web applications starting at project inception. The final portion of this course builds on the previously learned mechanics for building defenses by exploring how design and analysis can be used to build stronger applications from the beginning of the software lifecycle. A key component to our Best Defense IT Security Training Series, this workshop is a companion course with several developer-oriented courses and seminars. Although this edition of the course is .Net-specific, it may also be presented using Java or other programming languages.
Familiarity with the C# programming language is required, and real world programming experience is highly recommended. Students should have an understanding and a working knowledge in basic programming in .Net. Students should have experience similar to ProTech's .Net Framework Using C#.
4 Days/Lecture & Lab
This is an intermediate-level .Net programming course designed for application project stakeholders who wish to get up and running on developing well defended .Net applications.
