Grow your team’s Java security skills

As one of the most popular programming languages, we have built extensive training modules around Java security best practices. Avatao’s modules cover the most common attacks and exploits, as well as challenging exercises around Spring Framework. We guide users through three levels of competence to make sure they have a solid understanding of secure coding in Java, so that they can build secure applications.

Equip developers with job-relevant Java security knowledge

What your team will learn:

Java security best practices

Most common Java attacks & corresponding exploits

OWASP Top 10

Web security

Native Java vulnerabilities

Spring Framework &
Spring Boot

Training for different levels of Java expertise

1. Beginner - Java secure coding guidelines

Developers get a solid understanding of the most common Java security vulnerabilities through guided tutorials. The beginner module includes topics such as database design and transactions, authentication, data validation and password policies, as well as some basic web security topics like XSS and CSRF.

2. Intermediate - Best practices and strategies

Your team will gain a better understanding of the most common attack surfaces. We equip learners with hands-on skills to be able to think like hackers, and we also empower them to design and build up multiple lines of defense. Apart from diving deeper into the topics covered in the beginners’ modules, the intermediate section includes topics such as insecure direct object reference, concurrency, some security breaches and case studies, as well as secure coding topics in Java EE and Spring Framework.

3. Advanced - Real security breaches

Developers can immerse themselves in advanced Java challenges: all vulnerabilities and the relevant attacks are demonstrated through real-life security breaches, followed by the recommended secure coding guidelines, and the possible mitigation techniques. Some of the topics included in this module are: regular expressions and related attack vectors, unrestricted file upload, reflected file download, and remote code execution challenges.
