This training is based on the Hacking-Lab.com platform, providing an online lab with several hundreds of different security challenges. Participants of this training will be granted access to several challenges in Hacking-Lab.com, where they can exercise their skills or learn with step-by-step instructions on how to exploit vulnerable web applications. After a common introduction, participants can select the desired difficulty level and solve the proposed challenges at their own pace, with the support of two trainers. A virtual machine, including all required tools, is provided as working environment. Participants are required to bring their own laptop with the provided virtual machine image installed.
This training is open to anyone interested in web application security (e.g. web application developers, system administrators, CISOs, etc). The technical level is pretty much open, the trainers provide individual support to the participants during the training. To work with the lab environment, participants are expected to have basic experience working with the linux command line and also have basic knowledge of the HTTP protocol.
