Trainings Hacking Extrem Web Applications

Hacking Extreme Web Applications – Special Edition

Instructors: Michael Brügge and Joshua Tiago 

Web-based applications are becoming a favorite target, not only because more and more companies provide web services, online shops, banking applications, employee portals and other interactive applications with web front ends, but also because new methods are available allowing to attack and manipulate these systems.

"Hacking Extreme Web Applications" is a course based on our successful "Hacking Extreme" course, but, as the name suggests, is concerned with attacks on web applications and the databases located behind them.

The intensive course teaches you about the methods used by attackers, and both well-known and lesser-known techniques for attacking web applications and the databases and back ends located behind them. The training takes a hands-on approach and is enhanced by numerous laboratory exercises.

Using different exercises, we explain the theory and practice behind buzzwords like "SQL injection", "hidden manipulation", "cross-site scripting" and many others.

Each participant has an individual notebook containing a large number of tools at his disposal, allowing him to gain practical experience from an attacker's point of view. The trainers carry out security audits on a regular basis, and they are known as experts in the application security field. 

The training covers all OWASP Top Ten 2013 vulnerability types.
