Instructors will explain key concepts of web application security, and lead lab exercises in which you will explore protection and performance features. In the lab, you will experience traffic and attack simulations that use real web applications. You will work with those simulations to learn how to distribute the load from virtual servers to real servers, while enforcing logical parameters, inspecting flow, and securing HTTP session cookies.
