COD 270 - Creating Secure COBOL & Mainframe Applications

Course Overview

This secure coding course covers countermeasures for security vulnerabilities on mainframe systems such as input validation, parameterized APIs, strong cryptography, and memory management issues.

Topics include:

  • Identifying vulnerabilities and threats to mainframe applications and data
  • Mitigating SQL injection threats using safe prepared statements and parameterized APIs
  • Validating all input
  • Using exec* functions instead of system functions to mitigate the risk of command injection
  • Using key derivation functions to protect stored password
  • Encrypting sensitive data at rest using AES-256
  • Protecting sensitive data in transit with TLS
  • Preventing deadlocks by using the ENQ and DEQ commands
  • Avoiding manual memory management in order to prevent buffer overflow conditions
