Demystifying TLS, HTTPS and Modern browser Security Capabilities
The Web is over 20 years old now, and there's a lot of legacy security which doesn't measure up to today's requirements. In 1995, NetScape Navigator launched with SSL version 2 to help secure essential ecommerce transactions over an untrusted Internet, and today some organisations leave the now-vulnerable 1995-era security enabled.
This one day instuctor-led course, by one of the very early adopters of Web technologies in Australia, dives deep enough into Web security to guide you to good configuration (but avoids the complex algorithm!). An approachable way to understand and help secure Web workloads.
At the end of this day you'll be armed with enough knowledge to help protect your organisation's workloads — both internally and externally facing.
By learning how to secure your public facing services, you'll also see how to secure you're private or internal facing services, which can help protect against internal eavesdropping, injection, or other mischief. This is especially important if you have wireless "internal" networks, which suffered the Krack vulnerability against WiFi WPA2 in 2017.
The last few years have seen a number of high profile vulnerabilities found, and we'll look at ways to limit them:
This course is offered at our centrally designated location, or can be delivered privately at your location with a minimum quota of 6 participants (outside of Australia will incur travel & expenses costs).

The intent for this course is to give participants the confidence to understand correct and incorrect configuration of in flight encryption, the ability for the modern Web Browser to assist to limit the scope of damage done by third party content that is depended on. To that end, we'll discuss:
The content of this course is aimed at a broad cross-section of folk with operational responsibilty for securing workloads, even if they don't realise it! Roles such as:
This content is delivered through a combination of personal instructor-led training, and practical lab work. We keep our group small to allow as much interaction as possible.
The practical work is designed to give you the capability to execute on the knowledge learnt. Participants will require a laptop, and current version of Chrome and/or Firefox browsers available to them.
