Secure Coding in C/C++ Training Course Description

This Secure Coding in C/C++ Training course will cover all of the most common programming flaws that affect C and C++ code. Each issue is described clearly with examples. Throughout the Secure Coding in C & C++ Training course students are asked to identify flaws in modern versions of common open-source software to provide hands-on experience identifying these issues in existing code. Exercises also require students to provide secure solutions to coding problems in order to demonstrate mastery of the subject.

The C and C++ programming languages are the bedrock for most operating systems, major network services, embedded systems and system utilities. Even though C and, to a lesser extent, C++ are well understood languages, the flexibility of the language and inconsistencies in the standard C libraries have led to an enormous number of discovered vulnerabilities over the years. The unfortunate truth is that there are probably more undiscovered vulnerabilities than there are known vulnerabilities!

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Secure Coding in C/C++ Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Secure Coding in C/C++ Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Secure Coding in C/C++ Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
