I've just finished uploading lesson 4, part 2 of my CGI course. I've hacked this together pretty fast, so comments are welcome. It covers basic information about grabbing form data and how to securely store user passwords from a login form. It also hints at the information that will be contained in lesson 5: using cookies and generating session IDs.
The lesson really gets into some nit-picky details about Web-based security, so let me know if I've dropped the ball anywhere. Also, I think it may be fairly intimidating to a new Web programmer. Is it too much?
Regardless of whether or not you like the course, I'd appreciate it if you'd go to http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Documentation/CGI_Tutorials/ and give me a rating. I think that what I've produced so far leaves most of the other courses in the dust (yeah, they have no security info, typically hand-roll their CGI, etc). This isn't for bragging rights. I want people to see that this is a good course and hopefully take these matters to heart.
