About the course

AppSecOps is a 4-Day practical hands-on training to understand application security vulnerabilities and how to automate the defenses for the same. Provides insights into the latest security vulnerabilities such as host header injection, XML external entity injection, attacks on JWT tokens, SSRF Attacks, deserialization vulnerabilities etc... Attendees will learn how to defend themselves against such attacks and learn how to integrate the defenses by creating a DevSecOps environment.

The DevSecOps environment will be shown implemented by injecting security into Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), Continuous Monitoring (CM) and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) . A Short preview of the DevSecOps portion of the course is available for viewing here.

Course Objectives

  • Covers industry standards such as OWASP top 10 with a practical demonstration of vulnerabilities complemented with hands-on lab practice.
  • Provides insights into the latest security vulnerabilities (such as host header injection, XML external entity injection, attacks on JWT tokens, known-plaintext attacks, deserialization vulnerabilities).
  • Offers thorough guidance on best security practices (Introduction to various security frameworks and tools and techniques for secure application development).
  • Makes real-world analogies for each vulnerability explained (Understand and appreciate why Facebook would pay $33,000 for XML Entity Injection vulnerability?).
  • Provides online labs for hands-on practice during and after the course (7 Days)
  • Create a security culture/mindset amongst the already integrated “DevOps” team.
  • Find and fix security bugs as early in SDLC as possible i.e. understand the “Shift Left” methodology.
  • The culture promotes the philosophy “Security is everyone’s problem”.
  • Integrate all security software centrally and utilize the results more effectively.
  • Measure and shrink the attack surface.
