Course Description

In this course, students will learn about vulnerabilities that undermine security, and how to identify and remediate them in projects. Students will learn general strategies for dealing with security defects and misconfiguration, how to design software to deal with the human element in security, and how to incorporate security into all phases of development.

Learning Objectives

This course will teach students to employ best practices in software development to develop secure software. Students will learn to identify the need for security in software projects, eliminate vulnerabilities within software, use a Security by Design approach to design a secure architecture for software, implement common protections to protect users and data, apply various testing methods to find and correct security defects in software, and maintain deployed software to ensure ongoing security.
