This lab-intensive course provides hands-on .Net security training that offers a unique look at .Net application security. Beginning with penetration testing and hunting for bugs in .Net web applications, you thoroughly examine best practices for defensively coding web applications, covering all the OWASP Top Ten as well as several additional prominent vulnerabilities. You will repeatedly attack and then defend various assets associated with fully functional web applications and services, driving home the mechanics of how to secure .Net web applications in the most practical of terms.

Students who attend Attacking and Securing .Net Web Applications will leave the course armed with the skills required to recognize actual and potential software vulnerabilities and implement defenses for those vulnerabilities. This course begins by developing the skills required to fingerprint a web application and then scan it for vulnerabilities and bugs. Practical labs using current tools and techniques provide students with the experience needed to begin testing their own applications. Students also gain a deeper understanding of how attackers probe applications to understand the runtime environment as well as find potential weaknesses. This course the introduces developers to the most common security vulnerabilities faced by web applications today. Each vulnerability is examined from a .Net perspective through a process of describing the threat and attack mechanisms, recognizing associated vulnerabilities, and, finally, designing, implementing effective defenses.
Practical labs reinforce these concepts with real vulnerabilities and attacks. Students are then challenged to design and implement the layered defenses they will need in defending their own applications. There is an emphasis on the underlying vulnerability patterns since the technologies, use cases, and methods of attack as constantly changing. The patterns remain the same through all the change and flux.
This "skills-centric" course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, designed to train attendees in secure web application development, coding and design, coupling the most current, effective techniques with the soundest industry practices. Our instructors and mentors are highly experienced practitioners who bring years of current "on-the-job" experience into every classroom.
