Course Description


This Understanding Web Application Security – A Technical Overview course is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in basic terminology and concepts, extended and built upon throughout the engagement. Students will examine various recognized attacks against web applications. Processes and best practices are discussed and illustrated through both discussions and group activities. Attending students will be led through a series of advanced topics comprised of integrated lectures, group discussions and comprehensive demonstrations.

This course quickly introduces the most common security vulnerabilities faced by web applications today. Each vulnerability is examined through a process of describing the threat and attack mechanisms, the associated vulnerabilities, and, finally, designing, implementing, and testing effective defenses. In many cases, there are demonstrations that reinforce these concepts with real vulnerabilities, attacks, and defenses.


Upon completion of the Understanding Web Application Security – A Technical Overview course, students will be able to:
  • Understand the concepts and terminology behind defensive, secure, coding
  • Appreciate the magnitude of the problems associated with web application security and the potential risks associated with those problems
  • Understand the use of Threat Modeling as a tool in identifying software vulnerabilities based on realistic threats against meaningful assets
  • Understand the consequences for not properly handling untrusted data such as denial of service, cross-site scripting, and injections
  • Understand the vulnerabilities of associated with authentication and authorization
  • Understand techniques and measures that can used to harden web and application servers as well as other components in your infrastructure
  • Relate to the potential vulnerabilities and defenses for the processing of XML in web services and Ajax


  • Technical managers & stake holders
