Overview/Description
In order to develop efficient, robust web applications, we must understand how to implement key web optimization techniques as well as key ASP.NET security features. In this course, you will learn how to use compression to reduce network bandwidth, how to implement custom encryption and decryption of application URLs, how to manage validation and prevent cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks, and how to implement a custom membership provider for ASP.NET MVC web applications. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft MCSD exam 70-486.

Target Audience
Web developers seeking an introductory guide to developing efficient, secure, distributed web applications with adaptive user interfaces using the ASP.NET MVC 4 and 5 frameworks in Visual Studio 2013; Individuals preparing for exam 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC Web Applications

Prerequisites
None
