Black Hat USA 2019 is still two months away, but it’s never too early for attendees to start planning their schedule. That’s why each week we’re recommending one session from the scores of research briefings and training courses that will be offered at the conference. Following our first pick last week, here’s our second recommendation: Attacking and Securing APIs.
This hands-on, two-day course will teach participants how to build secure web and cloud APIs, which is increasingly important as their usage skyrockets. The instructor is Mohammed Aldoub, a security consultant and trainer with 10 years of experience who worked on Kuwait’s national cyber security infrastructure and focuses on APIs, secure DevOps, cloud security and cryptography.
The course is designed for software developers, security engineers, bug bounty hunters and others. Key takeaways include creating secure web APIs and microservices infrastructure; assessing the security of API implementation and configuration; and using cloud-native tools and infrastructure to deliver secure APIs.
