Secure Programming: Developing Defensible Web Applications
This class is focused specifically on
software development but is accessible
enough for anyone who's comfortable working
with code and has an interest in
understanding the developer's perspective:
• Software Developers and Architects
• Testers/QA specialists
• Systems and Security Administrators
• Penetration Testers
Experience with programming in ASP.NET using C#, or Java JSP/Servlets, or proficiency and a solid grasp of syntax in whatever platform/language you work with.
In cooperation with Michigan State University, Merit Network will present Secure Programming: Developing Defensible Web Applications on June 11-13, 2012 in East Lansing. The class will be hosted by MSU's Libraries, Technology and Computing division for the benefit of the MSU campus, with a limited number of places available for attendees from other organizations. The class is instructed by
IT Training Solutions.
Register to attend.
The three-day class begins by demonstrating how attackers create strategies to compromise applications, in order to help students "think like an attacker." The class then moves into demonstrating how the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) provides developers with the tools to successfully develop applications that are difficult or impossible to hack. This class is rich in hands-on opportunities that give developers a chance to see for themselves how attackers think and how the framework protects the application, as well as where it falls short.
This course also satisfies section 6.5 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Upon course completion students will:
- Understand security concerns, including the PCI DSS
- Understand and know the common vulnerabilities
- Understand the underlying code flaws that enable vulnerabilities
- Be able to correctly code to avoid flaws
- Be able to spot code with potential flaws
- Be able to use various tools, libraries, and frameworks to better secure systems and code.
