Web Application Security Testing


Course Details


Security issues for web applications are among the highest concerns of many organizations. Despite this fact, security testing is often the least understood and least defined task. Security testing is a broad effort that requires a domain of expertise beyond traditional software testing. In particular, application software security testing is very different from software functionality testing. This course specifically concentrates on the methods to handle Web Application Security Testing.
