The web is becoming a more and more dangerous place every day. You, as a PHP application developer, need to be armed with the tools and knowledge to make your applications as secure as possible. Come get hands-on training in applying secure design principles, testing code for vulnerabilities and fixing the problems we find together. We”ll be using a vulnerable application to illustrate some of the most common vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting, SQL injection and other notables from the OWASP Top 10 list. You”ll walk away with a grasp of good secure coding practices and a platform for future experimentation.
