Troy teaches you AngularJS security

Welcome to this review of the Pluralsight course AngularJS Security Fundamentals by Troy Hunt.

AngularJS Security Fundamentals

Overview

Troy says this course covers the essential knowledge we need for building secure AngularJS applications. Much of the information is also applicable to other JS frameworks.

Why Angular Security?

“How do I secure my AngularJS apps?” is a very common developer question.
Troy says this course uses v1.3.8 but is also relevant to Angular 2 and other frameworks.

Who This Course Is For?

It’s for developers familiar with client side JS frameworks. It doesn’t matter what server side technology you use.

There is still a shortage of security information on https://docs.angularjs.org/guide/security although it is better than it was at the time the course was recorded.

About the Course

This course covers 4 main areas:

1. Understanding Client Framework Security Boundaries
2. Working With Server Side Security Controls
3. Common Security Flaws in Client Side Implementations
4. Native Security Constructs Within AngularJS
