Secure Application Development Tips and Tricks
Secure application development requires the right combination of training and practice. Insecure apps can help - they give us a test playground to develop, attack, and hone our secure development skills. Similarly, example 'secure' applications can be models for developers to learn the latest in secure application development.In this webinar, we are joined by AppSec expert Jason White to discuss:
- Tips and tricks you can use to develop more secure applications
- Common secure development mistakes and how you can avoid them
- Insecure applications created to help you develop more secure code

About This Modern Security Series Episode
Security professionals and developers often use insecure apps to teach or demonstrate application vulnerabilities. The main activity is 'hacking' or showing how exploiting a given vulnerability works. WebGoat was (as far as we know) the first purposely insecure app for teaching web application security. Many other goats' can have also come about and now we even have a Juice Shop. Until now, there is no purposely secure [example] application for developers to model from. So, let's work with what we have and pull out some some secure coding and secure SDLC lessons from the insecure applications.
