What you'll learn
Our Secure Coding in C/C++ Boot Camp covers typical C/C++ security programming bugs and common vulnerabilities. The root causes of the problems are explained through a number of easy-to-understand source code examples that depict how to find and correct the issues. The real strength of the training is the numerous hands-on exercises, which help you understand how easy it is for attackers to exploit these vulnerabilities.
The training also provides an overview of practical protection methods that can be applied at different levels (hardware components, operating systems, programming languages, the compiler, the source code or in production) to prevent the occurrence of various bugs, to detect them during development and before market launch, or to prevent their exploitation during system operation. Through exercises specially tailored to these mitigation techniques, you’ll learn how simple it is to eliminate various security problems.
