Course Description

In this 19-video course, learners will explore the intricate world of secure coding practices. Topics covered in detail include declarative versus imperative (programmatic) security, whether the security is part of the application or part of the container. Next, survey defensive coding practices and control such as secure configuration, error handling, and session management. Learners will also explore cryptography, input and output sanitization, error handling, input validation, logging and auditing, and session and exception management. You will learn important information about safe application programming interfaces (APIs), including those that offer different types of functionality, such as Microsoft's Crypto API and Python's pycrypto, which both provide cryptographic functions; popular social media platforms provide their own APIs that programmers can tap into while incorporating aspects of those services. Learn more about useful concepts such as concurrency, type safety, memory management, configuration parameter management, tokenizing, and sandboxing. The course may be used in preparation for the (ISC)2 CSSLP: Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional certification exam.
