.NET provides unprecedented flexibility and productivity to web application developers. Many applications allow access to critical and confidential resources and this has made them popular targets for attack. Application developers are responsible for understanding the limitations of  .NET and adopting best practices to ensure that their code is secure.

About this course


This course aims to provide the knowledge and resources required to improve the security of Web applications developed using .NET. This course is designed to educate developers on the skills necessary to build and deploy secure .NET applications following a Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) process.

It is recommended that participants on the Web Application Secure Coding in .Net have completed the Web Application Security Essentials course. Please see “Related Training” below.


The course is aligned with the OWASP Top 10, a world-renowned reference document which describes the most critical web application security flaws.

The topics covered include:

  • General Web Application Security Concepts
  • .NET Security Features
  • Identify security risks in code (OWASP Top 10)
  • Implement Security Controls:
    • Authentication
    • Session Management
    • Access control
    • Input validation
    • Output encoding/escaping
    • Cryptography
    • Error handling and logging
    • Secrets Management
    • Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)
    • Data Protection
    • HTTP security
  • Incorporate security into the development process

Format: The course combines theory and hands-on practical exercises. The participants learn to identify vulnerabilities in a purposely-developed .Net application and fix them using secure coding best practices. This provides an ideal ‘real-life’ opportunity to exploit these vulnerabilities using different open source tools and techniques in a safe environment.

Duration: 1 day (8 hours)
