Secure Coding Web Applications presented at BSidesDC 2014

by Jim Manico,

Summary : The major cause of Web insecurity is insecure software development practices. This highly intensive and interactive course provides essential application security training for web application, webservice and mobile software developers and architects.
Jim's classes are a combination of lecture, security testing demonstration and code review. Students will learn the most common threats against applications. More importantly, students will learn how to code secure web solutions via defense-based code samples.
As part of this course, we will explore the use of third-party security libraries and frameworks to speed and standardize secure development. We will highlight production quality API's from various languages and frameworks that provide production quality and scalable security controls.
Jim's courses include secure coding information for Java, PHP and .NET programmers, but any software developer building web applications, webservices or mobile applications will benefit.
