Secure designs are essential to building and deploying secure Java programs. But, even the best designs can result in insecure programs if developers are not aware of the numerous potential security pitfalls in Java programming.
This course begins with a detailed explanation of common programming errors encountered in Java. Further, it takes you through security issues intrinsic to Java programming languages and associated libraries. Later you will gather insights on poor programming practices that lead to vulnerable code and teaches how to code securely and maintain secure development practices throughout the software development lifecycle. In this course, you will gain knowledge on input validation defenses that can be used to protect against common application vulnerabilities, as well as learn to conduct application security testing for web applications to assess vulnerabilities. In addition, you will learn how to secure Java applications by using the Spring Security framework, a powerful and highly customizable authentication, and an access-control framework.
By the end of this course, you will be able to drive the development of a holistic application security program in Java.
