We hope you’ve enjoyed Week 1 of this course. You can check your progress on the course so far.
In Week 2 you will be looking at how you can use tools to find vulnerabilities in your code. A technique you’ll use is static analysis which allows you to find the vulnerabilities that you have in your code against a known list of common mistakes.
We will be giving you step-by-step instructions on how to set up the development environment and install and use Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Fortify Static Code Analyzer (SCA) tool.
We have developed some code with known vulnerabilities, BuggyTheApp, to help you to become familiar with using the tool to look for vulnerabilities in your code.
We do hope that you can join us!
