With the rapid growth of use as well as
acclamation of cloud computing, the demand for
qualified security professionals with the
technical knowledge required by cloud computing
has also increased. While many businesses have
skilled security and operations professionals,
most of what they know about traditional data
centers is insufficient for the unique challenges
and features of cloud computing.

To bridge that gap, the (ISC)2 and the Cloud
Security Alliance (CSA) teamed up to design the
Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP)
certification, which verifies cloud security
professionals knowledge and skills while also
providing the education needed to provide
adequate security in the cloud. The CCSP Common
Body of Knowledge (CBK) covers a broad range of
topics applicable to all facets of cloud
security. There are six domains in the CCSP exam

  • Domain 1 Cloud Concepts, Architecture and Design
    (17)
  • Domain 2 Cloud Data Security (19)
  • Domain 3 Cloud Platform and Infrastructure
    Security (17)
  • Domain 4 Cloud Application Security (17)
  • Domain 5 Cloud Security Operations (17)
  • Domain 6 Legal, Risk, and Compliance (13)
  • This article will go through CCSP Domain 4 Cloud
    Application Security and what candidates should
    expect in this domain when they prepare for the
    exam.

Cloud Application Security Cloud environments
and cloud technologies are increasingly gaining
prominence because of their low cost and
flexibility. The lead time and costs associated
with procuring environments or test servers in a
traditional data center are largely mitigated in
a cloud environment. Cloud environments offer
incredible efficiencies and ease in bringing
online environments and virtual machines quickly
for developers, and costs are only incurred while
they are live and operating. The fourth domain of
CCSP will focus on cloud application security.
Cloud security professionals must have a sound
knowledge of secure cloud-based applications,
software development and deployment challenges,
software security and performance testing
methods, and Identity and Access Management (IAM)
solutions. It holds the 17 weightage and covers
the following topics

Advocate Training and Awareness for Application
Security The fourth domain of CCSP certification
covers the training and awareness for application
security. The popularity and pervasiveness of
cloud application development are continuously
growing. A well-educated professional is
essential for an organization to make informed
decisions about its specific demands and
requirements with cloud computing. Training is
frequently required when new development
methodologies are introduced. This rule applies
to cloud computing as well. Cloud Security
Professionals and developers must have a good
awareness of the realities of cloud environments,
what is required to secure them, and the common
risks and vulnerabilities that a cloud faces to
leverage effective cloud development, especially
with security in mind.

Describe Secure Software Development Life Cycle
(SDLC) Process Domain 4 of CCSP delves into the
Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in the
cloud, including an in-depth study at each step,
what it comprises, business requirements, and the
critical components that must be addressed before
we move on to the next stage, as well as the
SDLCs cyclical nature. Apply Secure Software
Development Life Cycle (SDLC) This section of
domain 4 discusses how to apply a secure Software
Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in a cloud
environment and avoid common vulnerabilities
during the development process. The primary
threats and vulnerabilities from the STRIDE and
DREAD models are discussed, as well as their
application to cloud settings. The section also
explains how to ensure that cloud apps are only
built and deployed when they are completely
secure.

Apply Cloud Software Assurance and Validation
This section of Domain 4 discusses numerous
distinct application testing and scanning
methods, which are not exclusive to cloud hosting
or development. These types are made up of
various methodologies and points of view, and
when utilized together, they enable exhaustive
and comprehensive testing of systems and
applications. Static application security testing
(SAST) is done with full knowledge of system
configurations and access to source code and is
done against non-live systems. Dynamic
application security testing (DAST) is considered
black-box testing, which is done against live
systems with no special or inside knowledge.
Penetration testing focuses on the capabilities
of some systems and applications to self-protect
and prevent or mitigate attacks as they occur. In
contrast, RASP focuses on the capabilities of
some systems and applications to self-protect and
block or reduce attacks as they occur.

12
Use Verified Secure Software The use of verified
secure software is covered in this section.
Because most modern applications, particularly
those in cloud environments, are based on
components, services, and Application Programming
Interfaces (API) that consume other services and
data, selection and verification of relevant
elements that match security needs is critical.
The old cliché about the weakest link holds true
in this case, as a single components weakness
might expose an entire application or system to
attacks and vulnerabilities. Regardless of the
source of the components, including commercial,
open-source, and community-sourced apps, the same
verification and selection process applies.

13
Comprehend the Specifics of Cloud Application
Architecture Other commonly used technologies and
paradigms in cloud computing are discussed in
this section, in addition, to secure development
principles and techniques. Extensible Markup
Language (XML) appliances, web application
firewalls (WAFs), and systematic approaches like
sandboxing and application virtualization are all
examples of this. Their significance in cloud
computing, as well as their critical use and
reliance on cryptography, are also
explored. Design Appropriate Identity and Access
Management (IAM) Solutions This section of Domain
4 discusses multi-factor authentication
technologies, as well as strategic approaches to
identity and access management (IAM) and building
them into applications during development.
Federated Identity Management to provide the
policies, processes, and mechanisms that manage
identity and trusted access to systems across
organizations are also discussed.
