DES 361 – Mitigating LCNC (Low-Code/No-Code) Account Impersonation

Course Overview

This course provides learners with the knowledge and skills required to mitigate the risks associated with Low-code/No-code (LCNC) Account impersonation and is designed for Software Developers, Vulnerability Assessment Analysts, and Systems Requirements Planners. The concepts discussed align with the OWASP Low-code/No-code Top 10 guidelines. Low-code/No-code applications can be embedded with a developer account, which is then used implicitly by any application user. This practice creates a direct path toward privilege escalation, allows an attacker to hide behind another user’s identity, and circumvents traditional security controls.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • Adhere to the principle of least privilege when provisioning connections to databases, services, and SaaS
  • Ensure applications use dedicated service or application accounts rather than user accounts
  • Use a single consistent identity across all their connections
  • Maintain a proper audit trail to identify the actor behind actions performed through the shared connections
