Security Ninjas: An Open Source Application Security Training Program

In order for OpenDNS to be able to make the internet secure, we need to make sure OpenDNS itself is secure. On the Application Security front, apart from performing security reviews, we also conduct internal security awareness and training exercises. What Is the Security Ninjas Program? Security Ninjas is an Application Security Training Program that I created for our software developers here at OpenDNS. It has really helped our developers write more secure code and hence reduced the burden on our security team, so we thought open sourcing it for the benefit of the community. The training program slide deck covers the OWASP Top 10 (2013) vulnerabilities and some general security best practices. The hands-on training lab consists of 10 fun real world like hacking exercises, corresponding to each of the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities. Hints and solutions are provided along the way. Although the backend for this is written in PHP, vulnerabilities would remain the same across all web based languages, so the training would still be relevant even if you don’t actively code in PHP.
