Crying into your wadded Kleenex about how your vulnerabilities were exploited may make for compelling TV, but when it comes to software security, they’ll cost you a lot more than your personal dignity. Or maybe they’ll cost you millions of dollars in lost business and your personal dignity.

Why not toughen up your code by implementing software security best practices that prevent or mitigate the risks?

That’s why you should head on over to the Klocwork Developer Network and check out the free eLearning courses provided by Security Innovation, an industry leader in software security and cryptography. To view learning resources, just log in or register.

Here’s a brief description of each course:

Learn strategies and best practices for understanding, identifying and mitigating the risk of vulnerabilities and attacks within the OWASP Top 10.

The Security Development Lifecycle (SDL), a key security engineering process that was spawned from Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing Initiative. Learn the necessary steps to meet SDL requirements, and identify the appropriate tools required by the SDL.

Learn to understand the mechanisms behind cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, describe cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and their consequences, and apply secure coding best practices to prevent cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Learn to understand the mechanisms behind cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, describe cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and their consequences, and apply secure coding best practices to prevent cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Have fun, code safely and put that Kleenex away (unless it’s allergy season).

You can wail and gnash your teeth over your exploited vulnerabilitiesSoftware security isn’t just finding your soft spots that attackers can exploit, it’s preventing them in the first place.

OWASP Top 10 – Threats and Mitigations

There are hundreds of risks to web applications.Each year, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) publishes its Top Ten list, representing its opinion of the most critical web application security flaws. Mitigating these flaws will help an organization greatly reduce the risk of a web application being compromised.Regulatory bodies, including PCI-DSS and the Federal Trade Commission, recommend addressing the OWASP Top 10 as part of an organization’s best practices.This course will provide personnel with strategies and best practices for understanding, identifying and mitigating the risk of vulnerabilities and attacks within the OWASP Top 10. Prerequisite: none.

Intro to the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL)

This course introduces the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL), a key security engineering process that was spawned from Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing Initiative.Students will learn how to design and implement products that meet an organization’s security needs.Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to identify the benefits of the Security Development Lifecycle, recognize the importance of the Final Security Review, follow the necessary steps to meet SDL requirements, and identify the appropriate tools required by the SDL.Prerequisite: basic knowledge of the software development lifecycle.

Intro to XSS – Asp.Net examples

In this course, students will learn to understand the mechanisms behind cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, describe cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and their consequences, and apply secure coding best practices to prevent cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.Prerequisite:Basic knowledge of Web technologies, ASP.NET, and C# programming language.

Intro to XSS – Java

In this course, students will learn to understand the mechanisms behind cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, describe cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and their consequences, and apply secure coding best practices to prevent cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.Prerequisite:Basic knowledge of Web technologies, and Java Server Pages (JSP).
