This course covers the implementation of document hashing and secure password hashing into Java applications. The standard way to do so is by using the Java Cryptography Architecture. This applies to Web applications, Java-based Desktop applications (e.g., Swing, AWT, SWT/RCP, JavaFX), Android apps as well as database and backend applications.
You will receive practical security background information from an IT security expert. You will learn how to encode hashes in-memory and stream-based. Learn how to use salt and iteration count for secure password hashing following the widely-used security standard PBKDF2 from PKCS#5.
You should be an experienced Java developer to take this course for the hands-on code exercises. You will do hands-on coding examples throughout the course. The code examples can be directly used within your own applications. Alternatively, you can simply watch the videos for informational purpose.
Frank Hissen works as freelancing expert for application security and applied cryptography. He successfully studied Computer Science at Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany) focusing on IT security. For over 15 years, he works as IT consultant and software engineer; for over 10 years, he also works in various positions as security expert in IT development and consulting projects. He mainly worked for large businesses but also medium-sized companies.
He develops software and system architectures for complex systems and implements them or supervises the implementation. Moreover, he creates studies and function specifications.
In the area of IT security, Frank is specialized in applied and technical IT security. For major as well as smaller companies, he equally developed and implemented security solutions and accompanied processes for secure product and software development.
In the area of cryptography and encryption, he developed security solutions as Senior Solution Engineer at SECUDE before he became self-employed in 2009. Since then he works as independent expert in the area of web and cloud application security. He creates secure conceptual designs of system architectures but also takes care of their secure implementation and corresponding security requirements. One other focus is the technical examination and validation of the actual implementation.
Until now, Frank Hissen worked in various projects amongst others for Deutsche Telekom AG, SECUDE, Allianz AG, ITO Darmstadt UT and SAP Research.
