Serving teams that use managed code (.NET and ASP.NET typically written in C#) together with native code development (typically C/C++), this training gives a comprehensive overview of the security issues in both environments.
Concerning C/C++, common security vulnerabilities are discussed, backed by practical exercises about the attacking methods that exploit these vulnerabilities, with the focus on the mitigation techniques that can be applied to prevent the occurrences of these dangerous bugs, detect them before market launch or prevent their exploitation.
The course also covers both the various general (like web services) and specific security solutions and tools, and the most frequent and severe security flaws of managed code, dealing with both language-specific issues and the problems stemming from the runtime environment. The vulnerabilities relevant to the ASP.NET platform are detailed along with the general web-related vulnerabilities following the OWASP Top Ten list. The course consists of a number of exercises through which attendees can easily understand and execute attacks and protection methods.
