Secure .Net Web Application Development Lifecycle (SDL) is a lab-intensive, hands-on .Net security training course, essential for experienced enterprise developers who need to produce secure .Net-based web applications. In addition to teaching basic programming skills, this course digs deep into sound processes and practices that apply to the entire software development lifecycle. In this course, students thoroughly examine best practices for defensively coding .Net web applications, including XML processing and web services. Students 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 .Net web applications in the most practical of terms. Security experts agree that the least effective approach to security is "penetrate and patch". It is far more effective to "bake" security into an application throughout its lifecycle. After spending significant time trying to defend a poorly designed (from a security perspective) web

Both course material and instructor demonstrated a sound foundation on Maximo material

Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.

Class was easy to sign up for and ExitCertified provided very good communication

Provided good amount of material and a great instructor to teach the material.

great class and packed with material, would have lived to spread it more into many days but overall very informative.
