Title: Advanced Web Hacking Bitesize Edition
Duration: 4 Days
Dates: 13th - 16th August 2020
Time: 10.00 AM to 2.00 PM IST
Type: Online Training on Zoom platform


Advanced Web Hacking Bitesize Edition course talks about a wealth of hacking techniques to compromise web applications, APIs and associated end-points. This course focuses on specific areas of app-sec and on advanced vulnerability identification and exploitation techniques (especially server-side flaws). This hands-on course covers neat, new and ridiculous hacks which affected real life products and have found a mention in real bug-bounty programs. In this course vulnerabilities selected are ones that typically go undetected by modern scanners or the exploitation techniques are not so well known.

This course is an action-packed web hacking course exploiting modern web application vulnerabilities such as SSRF, Template Injection, 2nd Order SQLi, Deserialization, Crypto flaws and more. Attacking authentication schemes such as JWT, SAML, OAuth. Learning esoteric Out-of-Band techniques and attack chaining.

On Completion of this course

Attendees will be able to:

  • Obtain a hands-on introduction to application security vulnerabilities like SQL Injection, XXE, Authentication and authorization flaws on our purposely built vulnerable web applications.
  • Identify and perform Out of Band Injections for Vulnerabilities like SQL Injection and XXE to exfiltrate Data
  • Learn how to perform Remote Code execution and find Deserialization Vulnerability
  • Lastly learn how to attack weak key cryptography and how to fuzz and find vulnerabilities in completely encrypted parameters

Who Should Attend?

  • Web Developers, SOC Analysts and anyone who wonders about the types of attacks Pen Testers use to find flaws in applications
  • Entry/Intermediate level Pen Testers who want to know; what’s next? What are the advanced level attacks through which they can exploit vulnerabilities?
  • Network Engineers, Security Architects, enthusiasts who want to stay updated with the latest trends in Web application Hacks
  • Any technical person having a basic knowledge of how web applications work

Is this course right for you?

If you wonder:

  • Are there a ways to effectively exfiltrate data using Out of Band Techniques for certain Vulnerabilities?
  • Are there ways to Pen Test encrypted parameters to find vulnerabilities?
  • Are there ways to bypass SSO functionalities?
  • Are there ways to find SQL injection vulnerabilities not detected by Automated tools?
  • Are there ways to break weak crypto implementations?
  • Would there be an effective way to bypass password reset functionalities?
  • What are the different things I can do with an SSRF vulnerabilities?
  • How can deserialization vulnerabilities be exploited?

Then you have come to the right place. Advanced Web Hacking Bitesize Edition teaches you all of these.


The requirement for this course is that you have your own laptop with at least 4 GB RAM and 20 GB of free disk space and have admin/root access, along with the capability to run our custom Kali Linux Image from Virtual Box. Familiarity with Burp Suite will be beneficial for this course.
