Web applications are ubiquitous in today's computing world, and many software development tools are available to help with secure web app creation. In this course, examine different software development tools and explore server-side and client-side code. Next, learn how to scan web apps for vulnerabilities using OWASP ZAP and Burp Suite, write secure code, and enable the Metasploitable intentionally vulnerable web app virtual machine. Finally, compare the different types of software testing methodologies, learn the difference between vulnerability scanning and penetration testing, and discover how web application firewalls (WAFs) protect web apps from common attacks. Upon completion, you'll be able to recognize the key components of secure web app creation and the purpose of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
