Training

The Python language is used in many different settings –from command-line tools to complex Web applications. Many of these Python programs are exposed to attack, either by being directly accessible through the Internet or by directly processing user-provided data in a server environment. Developers must therefore be extremely cautious in how to use different technologies securely, and should also have a deep understanding in secure coding techniques and potential pitfalls.

This Python Security training course covers the most critical security issues in Python applications. We cover vulnerabilities from the OWASP Top Ten list for the web as they concernPython web applications as well as the Django framework. The course also encompasses the most significant security issues for Python code in general (including many Python-specific issues such as function hijacking), while also presenting security solutions provided by the Python ecosystem –such as authentication, access control and encryption.

Understanding the security solutions provided by Python as well as the various security issues and vulnerabilities is a must for all programmers using these technologies to develop web, desktop or server applications.

 

What the attendee will learn:

  • Understand basic concepts of security, IT security and secure coding
  • Learn Web vulnerabilities beyond OWASP Top Ten and know how to avoid them
  • Learn about XML security
  • Learn client-side vulnerabilities and secure coding practices
  • Learn about Python security architecture
  • Have a practical understanding of cryptography
  • Learn about typical coding mistakes and how to avoid them
  • Get information about some recent vulnerabilities in the Java framework
  • Learn about denial of service attacks and protections
  • Get sources and further readings on secure coding practices.

What Our Clients Say

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

Live Online - May 2020

 

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”
