Hardening user and device authentication can go a long way in securing web applications. In this course, you'll start by learning the difference between authentication and authorization, where authorization follows successful authentication. You'll also learn how authentication and authorization are related to web application security. Next, you'll explore how to hash and encrypt user credentials and harden user accounts through Microsoft Group Policy. You'll then examine how to use freely available tools to crack user credentials in various ways, such as using the John the Ripper tool to pass Linux passwords and the Hydra tool to crack RDP passwords. Lastly, you'll learn how to enable user multi-factor authentication and conditional access policies, as well as how to mitigate weak authentication.
