Advanced Web Application & Services Hacking

Training at Dubai for HITB 2007.

A growing concern has been Web application security Web and application servers are the target of regular attacks by attackers that exploit security loopholes or vulnerabilities in code or design. Adding to this concern are next generation applications; applications that are on the fast track and more appealing to the user, utilizing dynamic AJAX scripts, Web services and newer Web technologies to create intuitive and easy interfaces. The only constant in this space is change. In this dynamically changing scenario it is important to understand new threats that emerge in order to build constructive strategies to protect corporate assets.

This two day workshop will expose students to both aspects of security: attacks and defense. To think of newer Web applications without Web services is a big mistake. Sooner or later existing applications will be forced to migrate to the new framework. This workshop includes several cases, demonstrations and hands-on exercises with newer tools to give you a headstart over others in the field.
