With this course, you will understand the key security features of the C++ language, the common security pitfalls developers make and how to build secure and reliable enterprise applications using C++. Students are lead through hands on code examples that highlight issues and prescribe solutions.
All students are challenged with real world examples, which are reinforced by practical and realistic code level lab exercises. The course uses Hacme Travel, a client-server type of application completely written in C++ by Foundstone. Students are required to hack into the application, understand the development and design decisions that introduced those vulnerabilities and then remediate those security issues on the final day of the class.
All instruction is taught around standard C++. Wherever necessary, platform specific features (for e.g. .NET) are described for completeness.
