Designed the “Application Security Fundamentals” course for Information Security students of my alma mater, I’m giving back and together with my friends from industry cultivate the design thinking of next generation alumni: shift the mindset from problem discovery to solution architecture.
Three years after launching, to increase the impact of this course, we made our lectures open to every Russian-speaking student. Just register yourself using the link from the first comment and wait for the announcement of open lecture tomorrow.

Service-oriented architecture increases technical abilities of attacker to move laterally and maintain multiple pivot points inside of compromised environment. Microservice-based infrastructure brings more challenges for security architects related to internal event visibility and monitoring.
The research paper published by Alexander Barabanov in “Cybersecurity Issues” provides helpful resources to application and product security architects, software, and operation engineers on existing architecture patterns to implement trustworthy logging and audit process in microservice-based environments. We performed threat modeling for typical architecture pattern of logging system, defined threat mitigation strategy, and, as a result, provided bunch of high-level security requirements for audit logging system.
To properly implement a product maturity program, organizations need to embed and grow security expertise. Cultivation of application security champions requires the right pivot point in the following topic: application bug hunting and mitigation strategy.
For everyone who wants to start the new year productively and begin the journey in application security, I will introduce “Web Applications Bug Hunting: Fundamentals and Learning Path” workshop on SINCON.
