This course will teach you how to analyse web applications for vulnerabilities and exploit them. Whether you’re a developer looking to better understand how to defend your applications or a penetration tester looking to enhance your web application bug hunting, this course is for you.
SensePost has been conducting penetration tests against web applications for nearly two decades and has distilled its approach into this course. SensePost is the specialist pen testing arm of Orange Cyberdefense.
The training will provide a thorough and scientific approach along with techniques to maximise coverage of an application. It is in a highly practical format, with over 20 different practical exercises. You’ll learn how to hand exploit numerous common web vulnerabilities, and understand the theory behind them. You will be better able to help developers prevent these classes of attacks in their applications. We aim to teach you the trade not just the tricks, and while tools are covered and help, you will be taught how to exploit many of these vulnerabilities by hand.
Students will be provided with:
Defenders, developers or administrators looking to learn how to test web applications for vulnerabilities and penetration testers with limited web application experience looking to expand their skill set in this area.
This course stems out of years of experience and is taught by active penetration testers. You’ll have a bunch of fun while having your hands glue to the keyboards with all the practical exercises.
While not a strict requirement, students will benefit from having an understanding of the following topics before attending the course:
