Links for Getting Started in Application Security

Whenever I speak at a meetup I tend to mention the same couple of resources for getting started in AppSec, sharing them after the event on meetup pages or via email. Below is that list of resources, I hope they help you.

The secure coding course that I recommend starting with, by Sunny Wear (free): https://www.cybrary.it/course/secure-coding/

The OWASP Cheat Sheets Series (all the AppSec Secrets): https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Cheat_Sheet_Series

OWASP Dependancy Check (to check if your code libraries, includes and other components are no longer supported or known to be vulnerable): https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Dependency_Check

OWASP Zed Attack Proxy, AKA “Zap” (web proxy/web app vulnerability scanner): https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Zed_Attack_Proxy_Project

My own open-source project: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_DevSlop_Project

My course about how to do basic vulnerability scanning of a web app using OWASP Zap: https://code.tutsplus.com/courses/how-to-hack-your-own-app
