Programming in C#: Debugging and Security Implementation

Individuals with knowledge of object-oriented programming who want to learn the fundamentals of Microsoft Visual C#; individuals preparing for the exam 70-483 Programming in C#


Expected Duration
65 minutes

Debugging and securing your applications is crucial prior to deployment. This course describes how to implement debugging and security features in C# applications. You’ll also learn about validation of application input, symmetric and asymmetric encryption, managing an assembly, using compiler directives, and implementing diagnostics.


Validating Application Input

  • start the course
  • use regular expressions
  • use the SQLConnection and the SQLConnectionStringBuilder classes to guard against attacks on your database

Performing Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryption

  • use the AesCryptoServiceProvider class and the Common Language Runtime’s CryptoStream object to implement encryption
  • use the Microsoft Windows Certificates Manager to locate Certification Authorities and manage user and local machine X.509 certificates
  • verify the integrity of data by using hashing on the contents of a file
  • use either faster symmetric or more secure asymmetric algorithms

Managing Assemblies

  • generate a unique key pair and assign it to an assembly
  • use Microsoft Visual Studio’s Global Assembly Cache (GAC) to store and deploy strong-named components

Debugging an Application

  • use compiler directives

Implementing Diagnostics

  • configure tracing functionality
  • work with trace switches and listeners
  • configure performance counters
  • write to the event log
