This course introduces secure ASP.NET coding principles for AJAX applications. It provides an overview of best practices to mitigate common vulnerabilities and protect against common attack vectors. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify the threats to AJAX applications from cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery, and injection attacks, and ways to implement countermeasures against these attacks by protecting client resources, validating input, protecting web services requests, preventing request forgeries, and securing data access.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills to:
- Describe the architectural differences between regular web applications and Ajax-enabled applications
- Describe the special security challenges posed by Ajax-enabled applications
- Identify ways in which attackers exploit common weaknesses in Ajax-enabled applications
