Explain why web applications have become such a target for hackers. In addition, choose one of the Top 10 vulnerabilities we covered in class and describe why you think it is important to securing web applications.
Web Application Hacking
Hi Class, good work last night. To recap: We covered Web Applications security, including coverage of the Top 10 most common vulnerabilities.
In addition, we went through and completed the Web Hacking Exercise.
We will meet again for our final in-class session on 11/21 to hold a review for the final and cover any other topics you’d like to discuss.
The Web Application Security exercise will be due on 11/21.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and see you all on 11/21.
Why do we store data in separate tables and not in one big table? Explain to me how we take an ERD and translate boxes and lines in the ERD into a SQL statement. What is needed in order to design an ERD? What is needed to work with multiple tables in a SQL statement?
Last night we continued our Database coverage and moved onto using MySQL Workbench, writing SQL queries, designing a database architecture and working within a db architecture.
Next week we will move onto Web Application Security.
For next week: 1) Complete Murach MySQL Chapter 4 Exercises 1-7 by 11/21 2) Read the posted security readings
Have a great weekend!
What did you learn about how applications work in our coverage of C#? Research another programming language similar to C# and describe how it is similar/different!
As a reminder this week will be conducted via a pre-recorded webex that I will be posting under Schedules and Materials for Week 10.
This week we will cover Application Development, which included Form Design, Variables, Conditional Logic and Loops. The webex can be found under Week 10 in Schedules and Materials.
Next week we will continue our database coverage and will move deeper into database development which will involve writing SQL queries in MySQL Workbench.
For next week 11/7: 1) Read Murach’s MySQL Chapters 3 and 4 2) Murach 2-1 and 5-1 are due on 11/14
See you all on 11/7.
Have a great week.
We looked at two different types of applications last night: Forms Apps and Web Apps. What is the difference between the two? What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?
Last night we moved onto Application Software and covered an overview of web servers and applications. Additionally, we went through a hands-on breakthrough of IIS and Visual Studio.
Next week we will onto programming languages, specifically C#, which is used to create applications similar to how SQL is used to work with databases. As a reminder next week will be conducted via a pre-recorded webex that I will be posting under Schedules and Materials for Week 10. We will meet again in Alter Hall 602 on 11/7/19.
For next week (10/31): 1) Read Murach Chapters 4 and 5 2) Complete Tech Challenge 5 and 7 and the Web Server Audit Exercise by 11/7/19
Have a great weekend!
Just a heads up: Our Week 10 class on 10/31/19 will be a virtual class held via a pre-recorded webex.
I will post the webex in Week 10 and you can view it any time you would like during the week.
You do not need to come to Alter Hall 602 during our scheduled class time: Thursday 5:30-8pm on 10/31/19.
Last night we spent a decent amount of time discussing the database level of a database server as well as the operating system level of a database server. Why do you think we spent so much time discussing this? What are two main levels of security that affect a database server (hint: there are tables within the db itself, but these tables all boil down to files in a folder in windows) How do we ensure both levels are secured?
