This course is focused on advanced techniques for performing web applications penetration testing in highly secure environment. Our course has been developed around professional penetration testing and security awareness in the business and IT fields.

During the course, we will explore more advanced ways of exploiting web application vulnerabilities through cross-site scripting, SQL injections, insecure file handling and insecure inclusions. We will also learn how to attack XML parsers, how to perform efficient deserialization attacks and finally we will perform some advanced attacks, such as web cache poisoning, DNS rebinding and request smuggling.

Our goal is to show you all the most important aspects of web application penetration testing. Together we will look for vulnerabilities and exploit them in practice in CQURE’s custom-built training environment. During the exercises, we will use industry-standard tools such as the Kali Linux, Burp Suite, Bloodhound, Metasploit and the Wireshark.

To make sure that all participants gain the necessary security concepts and knowledge, our classes have an intensive hands-on labs format and we have prepared tons of exercises that you will be able to perform even after the course concludes, as we will grant you an extra 3-weeks of lab access!

The knowledge used to prepare the unique content of this amazing course has been gathered during tons of penetration testing projects done all around the world by CQURE Experts. The training will allow you to understand the penetration tester’s perspective on security, and learn crucial tools and concepts needed for everyone considering developing their career in penetration testing or cybersecurity in general.

Platform and Technical Requirements:

To participate in the course you need a Stable internet connection. For best learning experience we also need you to have a webcam, headphones and a microphone. Open RDP port 3391 for the connection to the Lab environment is needed as well. We will setup a secure Zoom classroom for every day of the course – we will send you a safe link to join the conference by e-mail.

Our students say…

I have attended CQURE’s training as someone who is not a security professional, but just an enthusiast, and I feel like I learned a A LOT. The whole training was loaded with information and nice demos of the latest technologies. On top of that — having an opportunity to ask and talk to professionals was priceless.

All of their classes are based on their real world experience with the products, not just the typical Official Curriculum style classes that teach you things for an exam, but that you will never use. You’ll find that all of the material you’ll learn in the class will be used, at some point, in your security career.
