Secure By Design

Book Description


Secure by Design teaches developers how to use design to drive in development. This book is full of patterns, best practices, and mindsets that you can directly apply to your real world development. You'll also learn to spot weaknesses in legacy and how to address them.

Foreword by Daniel Terhorst-North.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, , and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Security should be the natural outcome of your development process. As applications increase in complexity, it becomes more important to bake security-mindedness into every step. The secure-by-design approach teaches best practices to implement essential software features using design as the primary for security.

About the Book

Secure by Design teaches you and best practices for writing highly secure software. At the code level, you'll discover security-promoting constructs like safe error handling, secure validation, and domain primitives. You’ll also master security-centric techniques you can apply throughout your build-test-deploy pipeline, including the unique concerns of modern microservices and cloud-native designs.

What's inside

  • Secure-by-design concepts
  • Spotting hidden security problems
  • Secure code constructs
  • Assessing security by identifying common design flaws
  • Securing legacy and microservices architectures

About the Reader

Readers should have some experience in designing applications in Java, C#, .NET, or a similar language.
