Secure Programmer Expert- PHP

Application security is becoming an increasingly important concern for software developers as applications are more and more exposed to external threats like hacking. By incorporating security measures into applications during development, programmers can minimize the likelihood of the introduction of security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers, and unauthorised access to the code.

Star Secure Programmer Expert – PHP is a comprehensive course intended for programmers who wants to understand fundamental practices of secure software development and deploy those practices in designing and building secure web applications. The course provides the learners in-depth knowledge about security design for web applications, securing user input through validation techniques, understanding error management, SQL injection mitigation, and securing remote execution and cross-site of script. The course starts from the basics and gives a holistic view of secure programming, detailing further to avoiding session hijacks, preventing rest services, implementation of captchas, identity management and logging and finally security through encryption techniques, and ways and means to secure your server and database.
