Secure by Design teaches developers how to use design to drive security in software development. This book is full of patterns, best practices, and mindsets that you can directly apply to your real world development. You’ll also learn to spot weaknesses in legacy code and how to address them.
Security should be the natural outcome of your development process. As applications increase in complexity, it becomes more important to bake security-mindedness into every step. The secure-by-design approach teaches best practices to implement essential software features using design as the primary driver for security.
- Secure-by-design concepts
- Spotting hidden security problems
- Secure code constructs
- Assessing security by identifying common design flaws
- Securing legacy and microservices architectures
Secure by Design teaches you principles and best practices for writing highly secure software. At the code level, you’ll discover security-promoting constructs like safe error handling, secure validation, and domain primitives. You’ll also master security-centric techniques you can apply throughout your build-test-deploy pipeline, including the unique concerns of modern microservices and cloud-native designs.
