Web application security

Learn the tools and techniques to start you on your way to becoming a cyber security expert.

Every day we interact with websites or apps on our computers and phones. We use them for everything from playing games to shopping. They create and store information about us. Some of that information we want to keep private and secure. 

What is the software that runs these systems? How secure is it? In this challenge, students learn about securing web applications, authentication and authorisation to understand how to stop hackers.
