Are you a pen tester who can test web applications? Are you good with web application scanners? Are you good at finding if a site is vulnerable to SQL injection and XSS? Do you know how to test for CSRF weaknesses? Have you heard about DOM XSS and Server Side Request Forgeries? Have you tested applications for HTML5 Security? Maybe you have tried to find such vulnerabilities in the past but weren't confident of your tools and approaches.

This 2 day fast paced and completely hands-on training will teach you to exploit security vulnerabilities like never before. You will be able to exploit the SOP and CORS, mutation XSS and bypass XSS filters and WAF rules. Learn Remote Code Execution (RCE), upload shells, do LFI/RFI and advanced ways of doing XXE (XML Injection). Practical web crypto attacks like hash extension attacks, ECB and padding oracle and other interesting attacks and vulnerabilities

All of the above and more in a realistic scenario based learning environment with the same tools attackers use to hack and compromise web applications and networks on the Internet.


Server Side attacks
  • Advanced SQL Injection, SSRF/XSPA, XML Injection, File inclusion, web shells, serialization, WAF bypasses
Client Side Attacks
  • Stored XSS, DOM XSS and mutation XSS
  • HTML 5 attacks, Web Sockets, Local Storage, CORS
Web Infrastructure attacks using Heartbleed vulnerability
Web Cryptography
  • Hash extension attacks, Electronic Code Book (ECB), Padding Oracle
Authentication and Authorization attacks
  • Insecure Direct Object reference, password cracking, defeating CAPTCHA implementations
Web Service attacks

What to expect

  • Intense, fast paced learning using a combination of scenarios, case studies, hacker tools.
  • Attacking applications using specialized tools and custom scripts that you will be writing over the two days.
  • Completely hands-on.
  • Coverage of vulnerabilities across platforms like Java, PHP, .net, Cold Fusion
  • A custom CTF to end the two days of training

Skill and knowledge required

  • You should be a web application penetration tester as this not a beginner level course at all
  • Ability and familiarity of command line on Windows and Linux
  • Knowledge of JavaScript and at least 1 scripting language like Python, PHP or Ruby

What you will need to bring
