Crack the Code: Defending Against Brute Forcing

Now Available On-Demand

Join Jim Manico for a 30-minute live training session presented in a friendly classroom environment. Book your seat today and step up your secure coding game!

This training modules is designed for developers to understand and counteract brute force attacks on web applications. Brute force attacks, where attackers methodically try numerous combinations to crack passwords, usernames, or other security credentials, pose a significant threat to web security. This module aims to equip developers with practical knowledge and tools to implement effective defenses against such attacks.

Our agenda includes:

  • An introduction to the nature of brute force attacks, their common targets, and the potential risks they pose to web applications.

  • Insight into the latest trends in brute force tactics, including credential stuffing and dictionary attacks, helping developers anticipate and prepare for emerging threats.

Effective Defense Strategies:

  • Rate Limiting: Implementing rate limiting to restrict the number of login attempts within a given time frame.

  • Account Lockout Policies: Establishing account lockout mechanisms after a certain number of failed login attempts.

  • CAPTCHA Integration: Utilizing CAPTCHAs to distinguish human users from automated attack scripts.

  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Enhancing security by requiring multiple forms of verification beyond just a password.

  • User Education: Emphasizing the importance of educating users about secure password practices.
