Course syllabus

Identify Threats to IoT Web and Cloud InterfacesDuration: 19:51

Before you can successfully harden web and cloud interfaces to protect security and privacy, you must first understand how web-based communication is intended to work and where it may be vulnerable.

Prevent Injection FlawsDuration: 25:18

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.

Prevent Session Management FlawsDuration: 12:18

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 Cross-Site Scripting FlawsDuration: 7:26

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 Cross-Site Request Forgery FlawsDuration: 6:32

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 Unvalidated Redirects and ForwardsDuration: 6:31

Unvalidated redirects and forwards are another serious flaw that you should take steps to prevent.
