SRT311 - Secure Scripting


SRT210 & RIS120

System administrators must be able to modify existing scripts and write new scripts to assist with daily administration functions. In addition, many administrators must also support the use of server-side scripts on Web pages. However, several attacks exploit weaknesses in CGI scrips not written with security in mind. This course will introduce students to the installation, configuration and use of server-side scripting languages. Particular attention will be paid to security in configuring scripting languages, in using scripting languages to analyze system logs, and in the programming practices required to develop secure server-side scripts.
