Course Description

This 6-video course guides learners to discover the basics of secure programming, including common security concepts, authentication and authorization, and shows how to avoid common programming errors that can undermine security, as well as how to incorporate validation and verification into programming. These are the core security concepts that you need to master to ensure that your programs are produced in a secure fashion. To begin, you will examine secure programmer security concepts, including confidentiality, integrity, and availability, known as the CIA triangle, least privileges, and separation of duties. The next tutorial covers secure programmer authentication and authorization, looking at general authentication models such as discretionary access controls (DACs), mandatory access control (MAC), rule-based access control (RBAC), and attribute-based access control (ABAC). Next, you will explore and learn how to avoid common programming errors that can undermine security. The final tutorial in this course looks at the process and techniques of secure programming verification and validation.
