Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Matt Honeycutt, and welcome to my course, Defeating Injection Attacks in ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core. I am a software developer and CTO at SmartMoving. You are probably familiar with SQL injection attacks, but did you know that there are actually many other types of injection attacks? In this course, we are going to learn how to defeat three of the common types of injection attacks. Some of the major topics we will cover include injection attacks in general terms, SQL injection, NoSQL injection, and OS injection attacks. By the end of this course, you'll know how to defeat these types of attacks in both ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of ASP.NET or ASP.NET Core development, including how to navigate around Visual Studio and how to debug applications. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about security with the Defeating Injection Attacks in ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core course here, at Pluralsight.
