Working with Selenium | Selenium Web Testing (TT3610) Course Details:

This course uses Selenium 2 and the WebDriver interface to design and implement tests. The student will work with a sample Web Application that requires several testing scenarios. This class features extensive labs with a goal of at least 50% of class time spent hands-on. This course includes “Survival Skills Java” for testers, which provides just enough Java to allow testers to begin managing tests.

    No classes are currenty scheduled for this course.

Working in a dynamic, lab-intensive hands-on coding environment students will learn to:

  • Understand potential sources for untrusted data
  • Understand the consequences for not properly handling untrusted data such as denial of service, cross-site scripting, and injections
  • To test web applications with various attack techniques to determine the existence of and effectiveness of layered defenses
  • Prevent and defend the many potential vulnerabilities associated with untrusted data
  • Understand the vulnerabilities of associated with authentication and authorization
  • To detect, attack, and implement defenses for authentication and authorization functionality and services
  • Understand the dangers and mechanisms behind Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Injection attacks
  • To detect, attack, and implement defenses against XSS and Injection attacks
  • Understand the concepts and terminology behind defensive, secure, coding
  • Understand the use of Threat Modeling as a tool in identifying software vulnerabilities based on realistic threats against meaningful assets
  • Perform both static code reviews and dynamic application testing to uncover vulnerabilities in Java-based web applications
  • Design and develop strong, robust authentication and authorization implementations within the context of JEE
  • Understand the fundamentals of XML Digital Signature and XML Encryption as well as how they are used within the web services arena
  • To detect, attack, and implement defenses for both RESTful and SOAP-based web services and functionality
  • Understand techniques and measures that can used to harden web and application servers as well as other components in your infrastructure

About half of the course is devoted to hands-on labs.

  • A background or prior exposure to the appropriate programming language
  • Background in web technologies and testing concepts
