To serve in the best way heterogeneous development groups that are using various platforms simultaneously during their everyday work, we have merged various topics into a combined course that presents diverse secure coding subjects in didactic manner on a single training event. This course combines C/C++ and Java platform security to provide an extensive, cross-platform secure coding expertise. Concerning C/C++, common security vulnerabilities are discussed, backed by practical exercises about the attacking methods that exploit these vulnerabilities, with the focus on the mitigation techniques that can be applied to prevent the occurrences of these dangerous bugs, detect them before market launch or prevent their exploitation.
Security components and service of Java are discussed by presenting the different APIs and tools through a number of practical exercises where participants can gain hands-on experience in using them. The course also covers security issues of web services and the related Java services that can be applied to prevent the most aching threats of the Internet based services. Finally, web- and Java-related security vulnerabilities are demonstrated by easy-to-understand exercises, which not only show the root cause of the problems, but also demonstrate the attack methods along with the recommended mitigation and coding techniques in order to avoid the associated security problems.
