About this course
Having secure authentication and authorization practices is one of the most important things you can do to secure your web applications. As a developer, you need control over how users interact with your application, your data, and other users. In fact, Broken Authentication and Broken Access Control make up two of the OWASP Top 10’s most critical security risks to web applications.
