What you'll learn

Training overview

This comprehensive three-day Secure Coding for .NET (ASP.NET/C#/VB.NET) Boot Camp is designed to educate professional programmers on the skills necessary to develop and deploy secure applications. You will learn about potential security issues through concrete, hands-on examples of vulnerable code.

You’ll learn which poor programming practices lead to vulnerable code, how to code securely and how to maintain secure development practices throughout the development life cycle. You’ll sharpen skills and gain experience in applying secure design and implementation principles through demonstrations of building, testing and securing real-world applications. You’ll also be given the opportunity to participate in securing and testing applications through a progression of “challenge scenarios” alternating assignments as “attackers” and “defenders” of applications.

Before your boot camp


Roughly 12-24 months of experience working with .NET applications is recommended. You should have an understanding of web applications, web programming concepts and experience building web applications using the .NET Framework. A basic understanding of IT security principles is recommended but not required.
