C/C++ security training levels

1. Beginner - Secure coding guidelines

Developers get a solid understanding of the most common C/C++ security vulnerabilities, attacks, pitfalls, and their security control through guided tutorials. The beginner module includes topics such as injection, basic string exploits, overflows, introduction to cryptography, basic exploitation, input validation, and other basic exploits along with their fixes.

2. Intermediate

Your team will gain a better understanding of the most common attack surfaces and security pitfalls. We equip learners with hands-on skills to think like a hacker, and empower them to design and build up multiple lines of defenses. Apart from diving deeper into the topics covered in the beginners’ module, the intermediate section includes tutorials on topics such as reverse engineering, advanced overflow, cryptography, unquoted service paths, symbolic links, exploitation, pointers, insecure deserialization, DoS attacks, and more.

3. Advanced - Real security breaches

Developers can immerse themselves in advanced C/C++ challenges. All vulnerabilities and relevant attacks are demonstrated through real-life security breaches, followed by the recommended secure coding guidelines, and the possible mitigation techniques. Some topics covered in this module are: advanced topics of concurrency, regular expressions, object lifetimes.
