This course will familiarize you with the common vulnerabilities that plague developed code as outlined in publications like the OWASP Top 10 and SANS Top 25. You will understand what type of development behaviors lead to vulnerabilities and how to avoid those behaviors when creating secure code. You will learn how to perform a threat model on development features to understand what threats could impact your code, where they come from and how to mitigate them. You will also review and operate analysis tools that are available to developers in order to analyze their code and discover vulnerabilities, allowing you to correct them early in the development life cycle. Finally you will understand how application security fits in an overall cyber security program.
