Just a quick update to let everyone know that I’ll be teaching SANS SEC542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking in St. Louis July 8-13th through the Community SANS program.  This is a fantastic 6 day class with lots of hands-on exercises, sharing of my real world web app testing experiences and a Capture the Flag event in which students will be able to use the methodology and techniques explored during class to find and exploit vulnerabilities within an intranet site.  I’m very excited to teach you the skills required to be a great web application penetration tester!

I’m proud to be teaching SANS Security 542 here in Cleveland through the SANS Mentor Program beginning in August.  The SANS Mentor Program allows you to save thousands on your training budget and still experience live SANS training on the GWAPT classes – live training without traveling!

COURSE DETAILS:

Security 542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking
Start date: Thursday August 23, class will run over 10 weeks, 6:30-8:30pm
Details and tuition visit: http://www.sans.org/info/106395

Where: SecureState
23340 Miles Road
Cleveland, OH 44128

This local course will be offered in a multi-week format via the Mentor Program. Each week I will answer questions and assist you with hands on labs and exercises during the class. Mentor courses give you the opportunity to participate in SANS training without the expense and inconvenience of travel or being out of the office during the workday.

An outline of the class is as follows:

- Learn an attack methodology and how the pen-tester uses JavaScript within the test
- Study the art of reconnaissance, specifically targeted to Web applications.
- Start the discovery phase with a focus on application/server-side discovery.
- Flash objects and Java applets.
- Exploitation

The class wraps up with a Capture the Flag event where the students will be able to use the methodology and techniques explored during class to find and exploit the vulnerabilities within an intranet site.

I hope you can join me in August and earn your GWAPT Certification in 2012!
