Web Application Security Course Overview
This course will give the participants thorough understanding about security concepts, web application concepts and frameworks used by developers in order to be able to exploit and protect targeted application. In today’s world, that is changing rapidly and thus all the technologies used are also changed at a fast pace, web applications are exposed to hackers attacks 24/7. In order to protect the applications from external attackers one has to know all the bits and pieces that makes the web application, like frameworks, languages and technologies used in web application development, and much more than that. The problem is that attacker has to know only one way to break into the application and developer (or systems administrator) has to know all of the possible exploits in order to prevent this from happening. Because of that it is really difficult to have a bullet proof secured web application, and in most of the cases web application is vulnerable to something. This is regularly exploited by cyber criminals and casual hackers, and it can be minimized by correct planning, development, web application testing and configuration.
