Secure Coding Practices & Automated Assessment Tools Tutorial: Understand Injection Attacks, Pointers & Strings, Numeric errors, Exceptions, and more!

Cybersecurity Specialists Bart P. Miller and Elisa Heymann from the National Science Foundation’s Cybersecurity Center of Excellence at the University of Wisconsin will teach U-Iowa application developers and cybersecurity professionals how to minimize security flaws in the software they develop or manage.

Their tutorial will cover the defensive side of security—how to prevent problems by exposing vulnerabilities that occur in real code, the techniques used to prevent them and how to use automated analysis tools to detect flaws in software.
