Course description

Secure validation means testing with a hacker’s perspective or ethically hacking the system to ensure there is no gap with respect to information security. Secure validation is to test in a negative scenario like injection, cross-site scripting and other attacks and exploitation techniques. Secure validation can be done manually or automatically using tools, or a combination of both. The process includes static (SAST) and dynamic (DAST) analysis, vulnerability scanning, fuzzing, penetration testing and manual analysis of the reported result.
