Attacking & Defending Web Apps with bWAPP


This is a 2 day advanced web security course for system engineers, developers, and security enthusiasts who want to learn to assess web applications and web servers. The focus here is on both attacking and defending techniques. All the exercises are performed on our famous bWAPP web security testing framework.

Students will detect and exploit web vulnerabilities like SQL and HTML injections, authentication and session issues, XSS, CSRF, file inclusions, Heartbleed, Shellshock, Drupageddon, POODLE, ClickJacking, etc. Detection and exploitation are done using manual procedures as well as using open source tools and commercial web scanners!


At the end of this training course, the students should be able to assess web applications and web servers for security vulnerabilities. In addition, the students should be able to harden web servers, identify insecure code, and to write a false-positive free audit report.

We focus on methodologies and procedures, and not only on the software tools. This approach, in combination with our realistic hands-on labs, separates MME's courses from others!
