This class will present effective security practices for AutoCAD software developers, CAD managers, and advanced AutoCAD software users. We'll share the many lessons that the AutoCAD Security Team has learned over the past 2 years. Concepts include types of vulnerabilities and threats, existing AutoCAD software security features, and recommended system settings and administration. We'll also cover how to design secure APIs, how to design secure build switches and processes, and how to design testing strategies. The primary focus will be on desktop AutoCAD software, but we will also get into web and Internet issues.
