The task to create and maintain secure applications, or fixing existing applications, can be difficult. It is no different for APIs. This module has been designed to give you an overview and working understanding of how to develop secure APIs and Web applications.
At least 1-2 years experience in cybersecurity or 4-5 years experience in IT.
- Introduction to OWASP Secure Coding
What is OWASP? What are the biggest security issues with online applications? We will start with sketching the big picture around web security and especially the OWASP Top 10. How to use it as a helpful guide to the secure development of online applications and defense against threats.

If we look at OWASP 2023 API security 3 out of the top 5 issues are around access control.
We will be looking into approaches to fix this, like implementing OpenID en OAuth2 flows and integrating these into your APIs.
