Much like our popular Advanced Infrastructure Hacking class, this class talks about a wealth of hacking techniques to compromise web applications, APIs, cloud components and other associated end-points. This class focus on specific areas of appsec and on advanced vulnerability identification and exploitation techniques (especially server side flaws). The class allows attendees to practice some neat, new and ridiculous hacks which affected real life products and have found a mention in real bug-bounty programs. The vulnerabilities selected for the class either typically go undetected by modern scanners or the exploitation techniques are not so well known.

Note: Attendees will also benefit from a state-of-art Hacklab and we will be providing free 30 days lab access after the class to allow attendees more practice time.

Key Takeaways

  • The latest hacks in the world of web hacking. The class content has been carefully handpicked to focus on some neat, new and ridiculous attacks.
  • We provide a custom kali image for this class. The custom kali image has been loaded with a number of plugins and tools (some public and some NotSoPublic) and these aid in quickly identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities discussed during the class.
  • The class is taught by a real pentester and the real world stories shared during the class help attendees in putting things into perspective.

Who Should Take this Course

Web developers, SOC analysts, intermediate level penetration testers, DevOps engineers, network engineers, security architects, security enthusiasts and anyone who wants to take their skills to next level.
