Web Application Security Testing 101 - Dan Billing

About This Course

Security can be a minefield for software development and for testers. Without testing the security of our applications, we can't understand the risks to those applications or even begin to protect them from potential attack.

Security should always be part of the conversation when planning software projects and testing strategies.

Security 101 will cover some of the key thinking, modelling, threats, and vulnerabilities that will come into play -- so that you can begin to make sense of that conversation.

What You'll Learn:

By the end of the course you will have learnt about:

  • Threat Modelling
  • Injection
  • Broken authentication and session management
  • Cross site scripting (XSS)

Who's This Course For:

Anyone looking to get started in Web application security

Prerequisites:

None
