About

Securing your application from hackers is the most high-pressure concerns for developers. In this course, you’ll learn how to protect your Java application from malicious attacks and users with the Spring Security framework.

You’ll integrate Spring Security into your application using the Spring frameworks through practical, hands-on examples. You’ll see how to secure your web application, integrate authentication and authorization mechanisms, and restrict access to your application. You’ll discover how to integrate it with popular frameworks such as Spring Web MVC, Spring-Boot, Spring-Data, Servlet API injection, and more.

We’ll cover the security challenges with Reactive web apps built for the cloud, RESTful web services, and microservice architectures with the Spring framework. You’ll also implement techniques for protection against attacks such as session fixation, clickjacking, cross-site request forgery, and more.

By the end of the course, you’ll understand common security vulnerabilities and be able to prevent them with Spring Security, with an empirical approach to securing your web applications.
