Structure of each injection module
Injection modules cover a range of topics including integer overflow, buffer overflow, input validation, and the secure development lifecycle.
- Background materials include a concise description of the module topic, the risk involved, a real world example, and some short non-programming exercises to help solidify understanding.
- The Code Responsibly section provides programming tips on how to avoid or correct the problem addressed by the module, with short exercises.
- Laboratory/Homework Assignments immerse students in actual code, challenging students to “learn by doing.” Exercises force students to think critically about the code, and in some cases to write their own.
- Security Checklists: Each module includes a “security checklist” giving a well-defined set of procedures for identifying potential security concerns. Students are asked to apply these checklists to programs or program fragments from the lab assignment.
- Discussion questions ask the students to reflect upon the process, results, and security implications of the module content, applying their new knowledge to daily life.
