From the Inside Flap


Do you have difficulty implementing application security into your software development process? Alice and Bob Learn Application Security shows readers how to "push left" in software, by building security considerations into their system development life cycle, right from the start.

You'll learn basic security fundamentals and requirements, as well as secure design concepts, all while benefiting from the code, exercises, and examples interspersed throughout the text.

Written by one of the leading voices in the application security field, the book includes answers to the most common questions people starting out in application security often have. It also includes valuable additional resources where readers can find more answers.

The core security concepts are illustrated through references to the personas of Alice and Bob and how their professional lives and businesses drive application security decisions. The book takes a pleasantly straightforward approach that's heavy on practical strategies and light on needless jargon or complexity. At the same time, it supplies the rigor or richness you would expect to find in a leading resource on the topic of application security.

The book is perfect for current and aspiring software and application developers. It also belongs on the bookshelves of software project managers, Chief Information Security Officers, and penetration testers who seek to improve their craft and their ability to deliver valuable results.

Alice and Bob Learn Application Security will teach you everything you need to know about:

  • Security fundamentals and requirements
  • Secure design concepts
  • Secure coding (with guidelines)
  • The basics of threat modelling and security testing
  • How to build an AppSec program
  • Modern application security concerns and defenses
  • How to implement security hygiene protocols for developers and IT staff

5.0 out of 5 stars Leitura essencial para um AppSec!
Reviewed in Brazil on November 15, 2020
O que me chamou atenção nesse livro foi o fato de seguir uma linha de pensamento que permite quem está sem conhecimento algum em segurança de aplicações a conhecer todas as fases necessárias (S-SDLC) para criar uma aplicação com segurança, sendo esse, o trabalho principal de um AppSec auxiliando nestas diversas fases, promovendo o shift left nas mesmas. O livro também aborda conteúdos mais estratégicos, como iniciar um programa de maturidade de desenvolvimento seguro de software, seja com o OWASP SAMM, BSIMM ou alguma metodologia própria, por exemplo. Aborda também algumas considerações interessantes referentes a Microsserviços, Serverless e etc.
