Introduction to Web Applications


Welcome to the Web Applications module of our Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course. The Web Applications module looks at the attack factor of web application hacks.

The Web Applications modules differs from the previous Hacking Web Servers module because it presents an opportunity to look at and discuss both old and new technology and web architecture – the factor in web hacking that defines web hacking. If you know the architecture, you know how to approach and set up your hacking session when conducting your penetration test.

The Web Applications module also focuses on the dynamics of today’s bundled technology and the coming together of web server components such as searches, mobile devices, the user experience, other web applications and social networking.  You’ll learn the basics of bringing together old and new web technologies and how it can be exploited to identify penetration testing opportunities and parameters.

The topics explored in the Web Applications module include:

  • Whiteboard, which shows the interrelationship of all the basic components utilized for this module
  • And the following simulation labs:
    • burpSuite Lab
    • HTTP Lab
    • IDServ Lab
    • nikTo Lab
