To continue where we left off at ‘Top 10 Web Threats’:

When: 6-7 August, 2014 (day and a half)
Where: ESI CEE e-Competence center, Mladost 4, Business Park Sofia, bldg.11-B, fl.1
Last call: Tuesday, 29 July, 2014

Motivated by the high interest in the “Top 10 Web Threats” course, we at ESI CEE are proudly presenting our next course on the topic of information security – “Advanced Web Threats”. The course intends to pick where “Top 10” left off – namely to deepen the understanding of the top vulnerabilities and to broaden the scope of vulnerabilities that are discussed.

The course includes live demos of attacks, exercises in detecting and leveraging threats, examples of weak and vulnerable code and the process of repairing it and fixing vulnerabilities, mitigation tactics, developer-specific best practices and discussions on how not to write vulnerable code in the process of daily work. The course is mostly technical and not organizational.

The advanced course will additionally include exercises in which participants in turn attempt to fix and attack particular implementations. Heavier focus will be placed on labs.

The goal of this course is to prepare developers for dealing with real-world sophisticated attacks, so they can properly design and code in order to deliver a resilient and secure product.

Course agenda:

  • Introduction
  • Advanced SQL & NoSQL Injection
  • Advanced XSS & HTML-only Injection
  • Server-side request forgery
  • XML Injection
  • Advanced CSRF Examples & Labs
  • OpenID & OAuth
  • Integer security
  • Basics of Secure Coding

Ideal for: Web front-end and back-end developers, software engineers and architects that have a good grasp on development processes but have had no specific training in security. Also appropriate for mobile developers working on hybrid and/or pure-Web platforms.

Prerequisites: Suggested background is the ESI CEE “Top 10 Web Threats” course or equivalent knowledge.The course requires deep understanding of web technologies and strong programming skills.

Instructor/s: Professionals from ESI CEE Cyber Resilience Lab, partner of Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.

Certificate: Upon successful completion of the course attendees will receive a certificate from ESI CEE.
