A large number of technologies and practices have attempted to tackle real-time demands to constantly update the browser. The new HTML5 WebSocket protocol promises bi-directional communication between the server and the client through a single TCP connection that removes a great load of header information and reduces latency. At the end of this course, you will be fully aware of the technologies needed to build real-time web applications and why HTML5 WebSockets offer us the opportunity to create unique web apps and enhance browser capabilities we had never had the chance to lay our hands on before.
Developers are notoriously lax in security. Part of the problem is not understanding how our applications are attacked. To protect your applications you need to BE a hacker. You need to understand how your applications are hacked, and therefore, how to protect them. This course goes over the most common hacking techniques using an array of current attacks to show how a web application is exploited. This course covers exploits and protections for both Web Forms and MVC. Covered are such topics as sql injection, parameter tampering, information leakage, cross-site scripting (xss), cross-site request forgery, encryption, hashing, and denial of service all with applicable demos.
