In this course, you will explore multiple threats and vulnerabilities that affect IoT systems in the web and the cloud.

1 hour, 18 minutes

Course description

The Internet of Things (IoT) builds heavily on the technology foundations established by the World Wide Web and cloud computing. IoT depends heavily on web and cloud technologies and is subject to all of the privacy and security threats that accompany those technologies.


Prevent unvalidated redirects and forwards

Unvalidated redirects and forwards are another serious flaw that you should take steps to prevent.
Prevent cross-site request forgery flaws

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) flaws provide another way for an attacker to indirectly provide code that another user executes. Fortunately, there are countermeasures you can put into place to protect against them.
Prevent cross-site scripting flaws

Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws enable an attacker to forward malicious code to another end user, presenting a serious threat to security. As with other flaws, there are measures you can take to protect against them.
Prevent session management flaws

Maintaining a "session state" makes it possible for a user to interact with a web server without having to reauthenticate each time they submit a request. However, the mechanisms that maintain a session in the user's web browser can be abused by an attacker unless you take steps to protect them.
Prevent injection flaws

If attackers can inject their own code into a web application, they can perform all sorts of attacks. Fortunately, there are measures you can take to protect against the threat of such attacks.
Identify threats to IoT web and cloud interfaces
