Course Description

Organizations must apply penetration testing tools to ensure the security of their web applications and limit their vulnerability against cyber-attacks. In this training course, you gain in-depth experience securing web-based applications and host servers, and learn how to integrate robust security measures into the web application development process by adopting proven architectures and best practices.

Course Objective:

You Will Learn How To

  • Implement and test secure web applications in your organization
  • Identify, diagnose, and remediate the OWASP top ten web application security risks
  • Configure a web server to encrypt web traffic with HTTPS
  • Protect Ajax-powered applications and prevent JSON data theft
  • Secure XML web services with WS-Security

Who should attend

Those who want to implement, test and deploy secure web applications. Experience developing web applications and basic knowledge of application server administration are assumed. No previous knowledge of security is assumed.
