Fixing Security Flaws in Spring Boot Applications

Session agenda

We all love Spring Boot. It enables us to create awesome applications quickly with the latest versions of all the libraries. But our work doesn’t end when we’ve created our applications. We are also responsible for ensuring it remains free from security vulnerabilities. In this session, we will take a look at how to find and fix vulnerabilities, including those that can be introduced via the open-source libraries we include in our application, from within IntelliJ IDEA. Staying secure does not need to be difficult.

IntelliJ IDEA and Spring

Check out this link to find more about how IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate provides a rich set of built-in developer tools and outstanding support for the Spring framework.

If you are new to using Spring Boot in IntelliJ IDEA, this can help you get started. You can also refer to the IntelliJ IDEA documentation on how it supports the Spring framework.

For working with Spring applications, my recent favorites in IntelliJ IDEA are the HTTP Client window and Endpoints tool window.

The HTTP Client window simplifies testing a web service. You can create, edit, and execute HTTP Requests directly in the IntelliJ IDEA code editor. The Endpoints tool window provides an aggregated view of both client and server APIs used in your project for HTTP and WebSocket protocols. It can assist you when developing microservices and backend-frontend communication. It is also helpful for exploring third-party APIs.
