Java developers and architects who want to learn how to secure their enterprise applications


Some experience with building Java enterprise applications is required


Learn how to protect and secure enterprise applications and the application server


Classroom training with hands-on exercises


One of the key elements of any enterprise application, is security. While it is important to implement a robust and scalable application with an incredible responsive interface, without security it becomes vulnerable. To protect the users, the company and the data, security must be considered from the beginning. It must be possible to control and restrict who is permitted to access the application, and what operations a user is allowed to perform. Unfortunately, not many developers know how to effectively secure their applications. This course is meant to help you understand how to implement security using the Java EE 6 APIs.

During this course, you will learn how to enable security using the built-in features of Java EE 6. You will be introduced into some basic terminology and the different deployment descriptors that will help you set up security. Afterwards, you will learn how to enforce authentication, and how to configure authorization once a user has been identified. The course continues by showing how to enforce security on web, JMS, EJB modules and Web Services. Both the declarative and programmatic options of Java EE will be shown. Next you will also see how to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt web applications and thus secure the transport. To protect the server even further, you will also restrict access to the management interfaces. All these topics will be put to practice using multiple exercises on the JBoss 7 application server.

While security is an extensive topic, this course will help you to get started, and the contents will be of use for the many future enterprise applications you will develop!
