Masterclass: Secure Coding Techniques using .NET
During this 3-day instructor-led training you will learn and practice all important .NET security features (with special focus on web applications), ways of hacking applications and reviewing the code with security in mind.
We will start by talking about security as a process – covering the most important aspects of latest Microsoft SDL guidance, tools, architecture and design practices. Then we will go through everything that each .NET developer needs to know about secure coding practices with the newest tools and services (Visual Studio 2017, TFS 2018 or Azure DevOps).
We will spend most of our time talking about securing ASP.NET applications and issues frequently observed. You will learn about OWASP TOP 10 – most critical web application security vulnerabilities, see them in practice (in ASP.NET) and mitigate the risks. We will see how to hack web applications by using various techniques and learn how to prevent those risks.
You will learn about the latest version of ASP.NET Identity – modern framework for securing ASP.NET applications. We will cover fundamentals of ASP.NET Web API and see modern ways of protecting them by OAUTH 2, OpenID and claims-based authentication. At the end you will see how to put all the knowledge in practice to conduct code reviews.
