In this course, you will examine best practices for defensively coding JEE web applications, including XML processing and web services. You will repeatedly attack and then defend various assets associated with a fully functional web application. This hands-on approach drives home the mechanics of how to secure JEE web applications in the most practical of terms.

Skills Gained

  • Potential sources for untrusted data
  • Consequences for not properly handling untrusted data such as denial of service, cross-site scripting, and injections
  • Test web applications with various attack techniques to determine the existence of and effectiveness of layered defenses
  • Prevent and defend the many potential vulnerabilities associated with untrusted data
  • Vulnerabilities of associated with authentication and authorization
  • Detect, attack, and implement defenses for authentication and authorization functionality and services
  • Dangers and mechanisms behind Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Injection attacks
  • Detect, attack, and implement defenses against XSS and Injection attacks
  • Concepts and terminology behind defensive, secure, coding
  • Threat Modeling as a tool in identifying software vulnerabilities based on realistic threats against assets
  • Perform both static code reviews and dynamic application testing to uncover vulnerabilities in Java-based web applications
  • Design and develop strong, robust authentication and authorization implementations within the context of JEE
  • Fundamentals of XML Digital Signature and XML Encryption as well as how they are used within the web services arena
  • Detect, attack, and implement defenses for XML-based services and functionality
  • Techniques and measures that can used to harden web and application servers as well as other components in your infrastructure

ExitCertified instructors have an average of 27 years of practical IT experience. They have also served as consultants for an average of 15 years. To stay up to date, instructors will at least spend 25 percent of their time learning new emerging technologies and courses.

Do you provide hands-on training and exercises in an actual lab environment?

Lab access is dependent on the vendor and the type of training you sign up for. However, many of our top vendors will provide lab access to students to test and practice. The course description will specify lab access.

Will you customize the training for our company’s specific needs and goals?

We will work with you to identify training needs and areas of growth.  We offer a variety of training methods, such as private group training, on-site of your choice, and virtually. We provide courses and certifications that are aligned with your business goals.

Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

The platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Great tool for learning

I was very satisfied about how the course was organized. Sean Did a very good work

Topics, material and specially instructor (Graham Godfrey) was beyond my expectations.

Great instructor, clear and concise course. Labs were easy to follow and worked perfectly.

The instructor really took his time and made sure I was able to understand the concepts.
