Fundamentals of Effective Web Application Security Assessments by Ryan Wendel

This course offering seeks to provide students a balance of practical theory and hands-on testing experience related to the assessment of web applications from the perspective of an offensive security consultant. 

The main goal is to impart an efficiency-focused mindset along with a framework of techniques a professional penetration tester would leverage to evaluate an application's security posture during a time-compressed client engagement. 

The course will guide students through the early phases of a consistent, repeatable, and defined approach towards examining an application's attack-surface given a finite amount of resources. Among the main topics discussed will be automated and manual testing techniques related to initial reconnaissance, exhaustive enumeration, session-handling logic, and effective vulnerability discovery. 

This course will also review how the Same-Origin-Policy and Cross-Origin Resource Sharing mechanisms affect cross-site attacks, highlight various advanced Burp Suite techniques, and pass on strategies designed to help students become better, more capable application-focused security professionals. The OWASP Top 10 will be utilized by this course to frame discussions regarding web application security best practices and the avoidance/remediation of common, high-severity vulnerabilities.

Hands-on labs will accompany each lecture component as the class works through the early phases of a real-world application assessment workflow. Students will get to work with vulnerable applications carrying common vulnerabilities inspired by ones discovered during real engagements. Once completed, students will possess a base level of skills required to deftly navigate time-limited professional web application assessments and feel confident in their delivery of high-quality consultations that clients will benefit from and employers will reward.

This class will make heavy use of the Burp Suite web proxy testing and scanning tool. A trial license for the professional version of Burp Suite will be provided to students at no cost.

*Exploiting APIs: Offensive Techniques, Tactics, and Labs by Will Vandevanter 

This 1-day training focuses on offensive techniques and tactics for attacking APIs. API endpoints and microservices have seen a large expansion over the past few years making them a central component of many appsec assessments. Understanding how these targets can be exploited is vital for any offensive role. 

Using a hands-on approach we focus on the methodology for assessing and exploiting these technologies, including: 

- Testing for authorization/authentication bypasses 
- Modern Injection Attacks 
- GraphQL 
- Blacklist/Whitelist Bypasses 
- Insecure Direct Object Reference everywhere! 
- Automating parts of your process 

The design for this training is hands-on with 80% of class time spent on labs to ensure the maximum amount of practice and understanding. This class is designed for penetration testers with between 1-3 years of experience and back-end web application developers with 3+ years of experience and interest 
in offensive security techniques. As a penetration tester you will add a number of new weapons to your arsenal. Although the training is focused on application security and intermediate in difficulty, discerning developers will benefit from being better able to protect your code and spot the issues discussed 
before they make it into production. Every trainee should walk away with a deeper understanding of the modern API attacks discussed and the confidence to articulate the business risk surrounding them. 


- Enumeration 
- Input Bypasses 
- Authorization and Authentication 
- GraphQL - Common Vulnerabilities 
- Code Analysis 

Student requirements 

Familiarity with a web proxy such as BurpSuite or ZAP. The trainer will use BurpSuite Professional for the examples and discuss a couple of Pro specific tools. You can sign up for a free trial license if you do not currently have a pro license. 
A laptop with 4GB or more RAM with a hard drive with 4GB or more free space. This is an intermediate AppSec training and familiarity with the OWASP Top 10 is expected. It is your responsibility to already be familiar with the vulnerabilities and exploitation of OWASP top 10 (for example as seen in Webgoat or DVWA). 
It’s recommended to work on the labs from a Virtual Machine. A Kali OS VM can be helpful though is not required. 
Students will be provided with: 

- Copy of the slides. 
- A large set of custom scripts and links from the training. 
- Remote access to the labs for 10 days after the training.

Exploit Development for Beginners by Sam Bowne

Class structure: A live CTF scoreboard is running so participants can compete to solve challenges. The instructor will briefly explain the principles and demonstrate the attacks, but workshop participants will spend most of their time performing hands-on projects. Complete instructions guide participants through beginning projects, and a series of challenges of escalating difficulty are presented to encourage each participant to progress to their appropriate level of accomplishment.

Workshop participants will perform all the steps in exploit development: finding vulnerabilities with fuzzing, sending crafted strings to target the EIP, injecting shellcode, and overcoming defenses, to achieve remote code execution.We will begin with high-level exploits, which allow direct command-line remote code execution on vulnerable systems including 
Web forms, ImageMagick-using servers, and SQL injections.

Then we will move to classic stack buffer overflows, which allow attackers to inject binary machine code into running servers. After that we will perform heap overflows and exploit format string vulnerabilities. We will also exploit the Structured Event Handler on Windows systems.

Finally, we will examine modern operating system defenses, including Address Space Layout Randomization, Data Execution Prevention, Stack Cookies, and SEHOP. We will perform attacks which defeat these protections, including Return Oriented Programming and Heap Spraying. Most of the attacks use x86 code, but we will also exploit 64-bit and ARM-based systems.

We will use gdb, Immunity Debugger, Mona, Metasploit, LordPE, and write simple Python and C programs.


Understanding of memory segmentation and usage in running code
Details of the binary defenses on Windows and Linux
Experience performing the whole exploit development process: fuzzing, controlling execution, and using shellcode

Developers and engineers who want to understand the vulnerabilities of the systems they make, red-team members who want to go beyond using tools others have written, and researchers who want 
to develop new attacks or defenses.


Familiarity with C and assembly language is helpful but not essential.

A computer that can run VMware virtual machines.

USB sticks with the required virtual machines, and access to the challenges, instructions, and lecture slides. They will remain available after the workshop concludes, and they are all free to use 
with a Creative Commons license.
