Course Description

Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (WEB-300) is an advanced web application security review course. We teach the skills needed to conduct white box web app penetration tests. In WEB-300, students will learn how to: Perform a deep analysis on decompiled web app source code Identify logical vulnerabilities that many enterprise scanners are unable to detect Combine logical vulnerabilities to create a proof of concept on a web app Exploit vulnerabilities by chaining them into complex attacks This course can be taken as an option for skills specialization after completing PEN-200, but students should be comfortable reading and writing code in at least one language. Students who complete the course and pass the exam earn the Offensive Security Web Expert (OSWE) certification, demonstrating mastery in exploiting front-facing web apps. The OSWE is one of three certifications making up the new OSCE³ certification, along with the OSEP for advanced pentesting and the OSED for exploit development.

Learning Objectives
