Software Security Training Course: Software security is the umbrella term used to describe software that is engineered so it continues to function correctly under malicious attack.

Software security is extremely important to developers. Because, let’s face it, your program may function well and offer a splendid user interface (UI), but if it’s vulnerable to cybercrime, clients will not be pleased.

The strategies for accomplishing this are many. However, some strategies are more commonly deployed than others.

Most cybersecurity personnel recommend locking down APIs (application programming interfaces). Apps rely on at least one API to function properly, enabling them to communicate and exchange information with other systems. Vulnerabilities in APIs are common, so your security here should be regarded as a top priority.

And, truth is, API security is not just about keeping out the bad actors. Access control infrastructure should also be designed to keep out all unauthorized entities including employees and customers.

Another “must” strategy is all about using encryption everywhere possible. Encryption is a way to encode your information so it’s not readily visible to any unauthorized parties (anyone without the encryption key). Experts recommend using encryption everywhere where communication or user input is required, such as during customer logins, or for message exchanges.

Software encryption uses software tools to encrypt your data. Some examples of these tools include the BitLocker drive encryption feature of Microsoft® Windows® and the 1Password password manager. Both use encryption tools to protect information on your PC, smartphone or tablet.

Software encryption typically relies on a password; give the right password, and your files will be decrypted, otherwise they remain locked. With encryption enabled, it is passed through a special algorithm that scrambles your data as it is written to disk. The same software then unscrambles data as it is read from the disk for an authenticated user.

Software encryption is popular with developers because it’s relatively inexpensive to use and doesn’t require additional hardware. The downside is that software encryption is only as secure as the hardware. If a hacker can crack your password, the encryption is immediately undone.
