This lab challenges a learner to discover and exploit an existing cryptographic failure in the password hashing functionality of an online banking application. In this lab, you are an adversary leveraging tools to crack passwords and gain access to user accounts where you can perform all the actions the legitimate user can or move laterally in the system or application. In addition to exploring symptoms and causes under this category, participants will learn how to prevent and mitigate cryptographic failures.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills required to:
- Understand how adversaries can leverage tools for cracking passwords to exploit such vulnerabilities as weak password hashing schemes and gain access to user’s accounts
