OWASP rates injection flaws as the most critical vulnerability within the Top 10 most Critical Web Application Security Risks under the OWASP Top 10 project. http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Top_10_2010-A1
Listen to Sid's podcast about the course here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/pauldotcom/PaulDotCom-329-Part2.mp3
This hands-on session will only focus on the injection flaws and the attendees will get an in-depth understanding of the flaws arising from this vulnerability. The topics covered in the class are:
During the two-days course, the attendees will have access to a number of challenges for each flaw and they will learn a variety of exploitation techniques used by the attackers in the wild. Identify, extract, escalate, execute; we have got it all covered. The following are the objectives of the course:
The course is not a generic application security course; it only talks about injection flaws and covers the topic inside out. There is no other course which covers these topics in as much depth as we do. In Seattle we will showcase the 2014 version of the class which has had a complete upgrade. The course is only available via Black Hat and other leading conferences. To make it even more awesome, we are giving away all attendees FREE access to on-line labs to allow them more practice time.
A prior knowledge of Database systems and SQL language will be an added advantage but it's not a strict requirement.
Students must bring their own laptop with Windows Operating System installed (either natively or running in a VM). Further, students must have administrative access to perform tasks like install software, disable antivirus etc. Devices which don't have ethernet connection (e.g. macbook Air, tablets etc) are not supported. A prior knowledge of Database systems and SQL language will be an added advantage but it's not a strict requirement.
