This course will help you build a foundation of some of the fundamental concepts in secure programming. We will learn about the concepts of threat modeling and cryptography and you’ll be able to start to create threat models, and think critically about the threat models created by other people. We’ll learn the basics of applying cryptography, such as encryption and secure hashing. We’ll learn how attackers can exploit application vulnerabilities through the improper handling user-controlled data. We’ll gain a fundamental understanding of injection problems in web applications, including the three most common types of injection problems: SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and command injection.

Along the way, we’ll discuss ways of watching out for and mitigating these issues and be able have some fun and exploit two different vulnerabilities in a web application that was designed to be vulnerable, called WebGoat.
