Overview/Description

In this 8-video course, explore the basics of secure testing methodologies such as unit, regression, and integration testing. Discover how to work with security metrics and track security bugs. Begin by looking at the concepts of security testing, and the goals of testing. The course offers an overview and a framework with which to conduct security testing. This framework is applicable to any particular approach to testing—whether automated or manual, unit, integration, or regression testing, the same conceptual framework will apply. Then learners move on to secure unit testing, and how to apply it, including how secure testing is done and who should do it. The next tutorial involves secure regression testing, which is, in general, a term for testing after a change has been made, so you will learn how to apply effective and secure regression testing. You will also explore secure integration testing, how to apply it and when and who conducts integration testing. Then discover how to use effective security metrics, and finally, how to effectively track security bugs.
