Security has become a large issue with web development, and threads often provide significant performance gains over multi-core systems. During this course, you will explore software security, encryption, and how to use threads. Work with thread variables and keys. Recognize thread priorities. Use mutexes to access shared data. Conclude by spotting potential code execution timing bugs, also known as race conditions in software, and how they can cause deadlocks between threads.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Create and use threads
    Use thread variables and thread keys to access thread data
    Recognize how to set thread priorities and use mutexes to access shared data and variables
    Identify potential race conditions and how deadlocks can occur between threads
    Recognize and use the ruby lang security issues list
    Recognize how to handle nil objects to avoid security issues
  • Create immutable methods in order to provide additional safety
    Recognize how to encrypt and decrypt data using symmetric ciphers
    Use cryptographically secure hash functions to create hashes of data
    Create cryptographically secure random numbers
    Generate secure passwords using cryptographically secure random numbers and hash functions
    Describe and use security concepts and cryptography to protect data in ruby
