Overview

Secure .Net Web Application Development Lifecycle (SDL) 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.

Students will learn how to: 

Understand potential sources for untrusted data
Understand the consequences for not properly handling untrusted data such as denial of service, cross-site scripting, and injections
Test web applications with various attack techniques to determine the existence of and effectiveness of layered defenses
Prevent and defend the many potential vulnerabilities associated with untrusted data
Detect, attack, and implement defenses for authentication and authorization functionality and services
Understand the concepts and terminology behind defensive, secure, coding
Perform both static code reviews and dynamic application testing to uncover vulnerabilities in web applications
Understand the use of Threat Modeling as a tool in identifying software vulnerabilities based on realistic threats against meaningful assets
Acquire the skills, tools, and best practices for design and code reviews as well as testing initiatives
Work through a comprehensive testing plan for recognized vulnerabilities and weaknesses
