Web Hacking: Pentesting and attacking web appsWorkshop Short Label: Web Hacking Workshop
In this hands-on workshop we’ll all attack the training web app, to take on the role of a pentester one step at a time. You’ll learn how to work with professional security tools through a range of practical tasks and will also learn pentesters’ general approach for attacking web apps.
Of course, we’ll also deal with defensive measures for protecting the security holes found, though our focus will remain the systematic use of professional hacking tools for carrying out (partially automated) security analyses. Once you’ve completed this workshop, you’ll have practical experience of carrying out attacks on web apps, which you can transfer into your own software development work so as to increase the security of your projects for the long-term.
