The course gives an insight into secure software design, development and testing through Microsoft Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) with a focus on web application security. It provides a overview of the fundamental building blocks of SDL, followed by design techniques to apply to detect and fix flaws in early stages of the development process of web applications.
Attack methods are presented for the discussed vulnerabilities along with the associated mitigation techniques. Introduction of different security testing methods is followed by the effectiveness of various testing tools. Participants can understand the operation of these tools through a number of practical exercises by applying the tools to the already discussed vulnerable code.
