About the course

Secure Web Application Setup Package
This package includes access to all CYRIN Secure Web Application Setup category labs for a period of one year. Access includes CYRIN's existing catalog of Secure Web Application Setup lab courses as well as newly-created Secure Web Application Setup labs during the access period.


Securely configuring web server software and frameworks is the foundation of creating secure web-based services.

Labs in this category explore the configuration of popular web server software packages and related tools, such as reverse proxies.

The labs in this category assume general knowledge of TCP/IP networking, the basics of the HTTP protocol, and some of the languages and frameworks commonly used for web applications. If you've configured nginx in the past but never used Apache, for instance, this is the category for you!
