OWASP AppSec DC 2012/Training/WebAppSec: Developing Secure Web Applications
Course Length: 1 Day
Web applications continue to be the frontier of wide-spread security breaches. This tutorial will guide through development practices to ensure the security and integrity of web applications, in turn protecting user data and the infrastructure the application runs on. Several attack types and risks will be reviewed (including OWASP?s Top 10), along with how the proper development practices can mitigate their damage. Although examples covered are PHP-based, much of the content is also applicable to other languages. This tutorial was sold out at AppSec USA 2011.
