The main idea of SCT is to provide knowledge about secure programming, which may be defined as a way of coding that minimises the number of security bugs in the source code. (As we are humans, not robots, in real applications we are not expected to reach zero bugs).

By showing patterns and anti-patterns, by hand-ons, workshops, code riddles and even a short HackMe contest, we aim to make GÉANT services more secure and cheaper in maintenance. It is proven that the earlier in the software development life cycle (SDLC) a bug is found, the less money must be spent to address it appropriately. And, if you are taught how to not make particular classes of bugs, well – they are found even before your SDLC starts.


Attendees having completed this training should be able to:

  • Perform a threat and risk assessment on their development projects.
  • Have a clear understanding on some of the major bad and good programming concepts.
  • Develop a secure web application code in several programming languages.
  • Use tools for assistance in reviewing code of other developers.
  • Target Audience

    GN4-2 software developers - security specialists may also be interested. Especially Java and PHP developers will be interested.
