Title: Application Security for developers A Holistic Approach
Duration: 3 Days
Dates: 20th - 22nd June 2019


Application Security testing (Also known as whitebox testing) as an activity tends to capture security vulnerabilities at the end of the SDLC and is often too late to be able to influence fundamental changes in the way code is written. This class is geared towards

  • Understanding what are application security vulnerabilities and its trends
  • Get an insight into their impact through practical demonstrations.
  • How to fix/avoid them by discussing various strategies , best practices , code snippets and tools.(Hackers/application security tester’s view)
  • How to inject Security into your DevOps pipeline to automate security and develop a DevSecOps pipeline.

If you are a developer who requires mitigation strategies or fails to understand issues like Cross-Site Scripting, Xml External Entity attacks, Deserialization issues, Content-Security Policy and many more application security vulnerabilities and their remediation then this class is for you!

If you are Manager responsible for handling a development team and would like to give a good dose of security knowledge so that you can avoid application security bugs in your code, then you are at the right place!

If you are a DevOps engineer wondering how to automate security into your pipeline, then this course will teach you on how to metamorphose your DevOps to DevSecOps. If you would like to avoid breaches like that of Equifax in September 2017, then sign up now !

  • Developers who create web applications in any language can attend
  • Any technical person having a basic knowledge of how web applications work or is responsible for Implementing, managing or protecting web applications.
  • Any DevOps engineer looking to automate security

You Will be able to

  • Obtain a hands-on introduction to application security vulnerabilities like Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection, XXE, Authentication & authorization flaws on our purposely built vulnerable web applications to help you understand the vulnerabilities better. Thereby enabling you to defend your organization’s website or assets.
  • Identify application security bugs in code and fix them before deploying it into production
  • Identify vulnerable libraries and avoid their usage
  • Develop secure web applications so that you don't waste your time later in fixing security issues
  • Understand the methodology that can be used to automate and integrate security

What you will receive

  • Students can access our online lab which is purposely riddled with multiple vulnerabilities.
  • Students will receive demonstrations and hands-on practice of the vulnerabilities to better understand and grasp the issues, followed by various techniques and recommendations on how to go about fixing them.
  • The attendees will also receive a free DevSecOps tool-chest (designed by the NotSoSecure team) which can be directly implemented in most CI/CD pipelines.
    • Prerequisites

      The only requirement for this class is that you bring your own laptop with minimum version JDK 8.0 installed with administrator rights and lots of caffeine!
