by Kevin Henry

This course will help you understand how to avoid the many security-related errors found in software programs, the nature of many coding and configuration-related vulnerabilities, as well as prepare you for this domain of the CSSLP examination.

What you'll learn

Most applications are built with focus solely on functionality and the need to support business operations, but you know that programs must also be built to be secure. In this course, CSSLP®: Secure Software Implementation and Programming, you'll learn about a important domain for the CSSLP candidate, teaching you the areas covered in this part of the examination. First, you'll learn the nature of common application vulnerabilities and the ways to mitigate and harden your systems to prevent security failures. Next, you'll discover the benefits of following coding standards and how documentation can help in the maintenance and operations of software. Finally, you'll explore how to identify software vulnerabilities and know how to perform testing of units of code. By the end of this course, you'll gain an understanding of the need to build integrated solutions and consistently high quality code modules.
