Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) Training Course Overview

Vinsys' official CASE JAVA certification course focuses on the implementation of secure methodologies and practices in a modern-day insecure operating environment. 

The Cybersecurity training covers the essential security knowledge and skills needed throughout a typical software development life cycle (SDLC). It encompasses security activities involved in all phases of the secure SDLC, from planning, creating and testing, to deploying an application. 

As a NICE-Framework-mapped course, CASE JAVA explores multiple techniques, including input validation, defensive coding practices, authentication/authorization, cryptographic attacks, error handling techniques, and session-management procedures. 

Our EC-Council training also prepares you for the Certified Application Security Engineer 312-96 exam, necessary for earning the coveted CASE JAVA accreditation.

Course Reviews


Applications and software are the keys to success for most organizations across sectors. Less than adequately-secured or vulnerable apps and following unsafe coding/deployment practices pose severe threats to businesses. Approx. 75% of all cyberattacks target web applications.

Despite these alarming facts, many enterprises of all sizes do not pay sufficient attention and allow security considerations to take a backseat, resulting in frequent data breaches or information theft. 

JAVA-based applications can be described as highly popular yet most vulnerable, with 90% of them containing at least one vulnerable component, making them ideal breach points for hostile cyber attackers.a

EC-Council's partnership with prominent application/software development experts.

Ensuring app-security is no longer considered an afterthought, and laying the foundations for application developers or development organizations to produce secure, stable, and less-risky applications. The purpose also comprises enabling organizations to mitigate risks of losing millions due to security compromises, and encouraging individuals to give importance to security sacrosanct of their job roles in the SDLC.

Unlike other similar offerings, the CASE JAVA training does not restrict itself to the guidelines on secure coding practices. Instead, it moves many steps ahead for covering secure requirement-gathering, robust application-designing, and the correct handling of security issues in the post-development phases of application development.

Managing security in each phase of the SDLC is by far the most efficient way of creating highly secure applications. Security-focused solid design principles, rigorous coding, testing and deployment practices translate into applications capable of standing up to malicious attacks, and lower end-user or application-vendor ownership costs.

You and your team members expand their application security knowledge, gain multi-faceted skills, develop a holistic outlook incorporating pre/post-deployment techniques, successfully build secure applications, and establish unmatchable credibility as app-security experts.

It is a hands-on course with access to iLabs (EC-Council’s cloud-driven lab environment).

No. However, in such a scenario, to take the CASE JAVA exam, you must validate yourself as an ECSP (JAVA) member in good standing or bring a minimum 2 years' worth of experience working in the InfoSec/Software domain or hold other industry-equivalent certifications such as the GSSP JAVA.

Besides being a globally-respected Individual/Corporate IT training provider, Vinsys is also admired as the top EC-Council Accredited Training Partner (ATP). Its unmatchable offerings, accredited instructors, customizable skilling programs and round-the-clock learner support ensure the most detailed upskilling experiences, a must for capitalizing on valuable application security opportunities.
