Course Description

Web applications are the source of many security vulnerabilities. Because of this, many web developers try to lock down the security of their web applications. However, not all of them do it correctly or completely, leaving certain avenues of attack still open. The Advanced Web Exploitation course explores how to search for, find, and exploit these hard to find vulnerabilities. Each module will have video lecture content, explaining how to evade common incomplete mitigation strategies and how to find and exploit difficult vulnerabilities. Each module will also have a hands-on lab component, in which the students will have the chance to experiment with advanced techniques, seeing why they work and how they can be modified in whatever unique situation is encountered. Students will then complete a capstone lab that will allow the student to explore a novel web application and perform a multistep attack to exploit it completely.
