Hacking Web Apps - Brent White Derbycon 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Hacking Web Apps
Brent White
Derbycon 2015

Assessing the security posture of a web application is a common project for a penetration tester and a good skill for developers to know. In this talk, I'll go over the different stages of a web application pen test, from start to finish. We'll start with the discovery phase to utilize OSINT sources such as search engines, sub-domain brute-forcing and other methods to help you get a good idea of targets "footprint", all the way to fuzzing parameters to find potential SQL injection vulnerabilities. I'll also discuss several of the tools and some techniques that I use to conduct a full application penetration assessment. After this talk, you should have a good understanding of what is needed as well as where to start on your journey to hacking web apps.

Brent is an Offensive Security Consultant at Solutionary--An NTT Group Security Company and has spoken at numerous security conferences, including ISSA International, B-Sides Nashville, CircleCityCon and DEF CON 22 - SE Village. He has held the role of Web/Project Manager and IT Security Director at the headquarters of a global franchise company. His experience includes Internal and External Penetration Assessments, Social Engineering and Physical Security Assessments, Wireless and Application Vulnerability Assessments and more.
