An empirical approach to securing your web applications
About This Video
Fully secure your web application with Spring Security
Implement authentication and registration with the database as well as with LDAP
Utilize authorization examples that help guide you through the authentication of users step-by-step
Learn with precise and practical examples for advanced security scenarios such as ACL, REST, and Remember Me
See how to integrate with your choice of technology and framework
Secure a standard Java web application with Spring Security by implementing registration and authentication processes and setting up the Remember Me mechanism. This course shows you how to leverage the powerful authorization mechanisms available and allows you to grasp the full flexibility of Spring expressions. Learn how to secure the REST API of this application and how to set up the advanced ACL Authorization for practical application.
This video course will help you secure your web application with the use of highly practical examples. You will also learn how to implement security checks, thus enabling you to create a staunch authentication mechanism that will prevent spoofing. Integrate with LDAP and progress on to more advanced security techniques such as Remember Me or the powerful ACL mechanism.
These pragmatic videos will help you learn how to implement various techniques for securing your web application through the use of simple to advanced use cases that follow the development of a web application using practical, step-by-step examples.
Each video section shows different ways to empower Spring Security for the web. The authentication techniques comprising of login, registration, and logout are implemented in this course. Moreover, the Remember Me functionality is added to the web app in addition to integration with a production-ready LDAP server. Further on, the authorization method is used and discussed in detail with simple roles, before moving on to the more flexible Spring expressions and finally the extremely powerful Access Control Lists mechanism, which allow security rules per object.
Ultimately, this video course is meant to help you hit the ground running with proper security for your web applications. The primary goal of the course is to be efficient, utilitarian, and immediately applicable for a web application.
