Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll learn how to defend against attacks that could force a failure in your application or cause it to enter an unstable state. Unexpected behaviors and fail states can allow an attacker to steal information or provide information for a secondary attack. You’ll create catch statements and methods that can securely handle exceptions, design code that can maintain state on failure, and learn to avoid unstable system states altogether.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
