Advanced Web Hacking (3 Days) With NotSoSecure

Action packed web hacking class exploiting modern web application vulnerabilities such as SSRF, Template Injection, 2nd Order SQLi, Deserialization, Crypto flaws and more. Attacking authentication schemes such as JWT, SAML, OAuth. Learning esoteric Out-of-Band techniques and attack chaining.


This class teaches audience a wealth of hacking techniques to compromise modern day web applications, APIs and associated end-points. This class focus on specific areas of appsec and on advanced vulnerability identification and exploitation techniques (especially server side flaws). The class allows attendees to learn and practice some neat, new and ridiculous hacks which affected real life products and have found a mention in real bug-bounty programs. The vulnerabilities selected for the class either typically go undetected by modern scanners or the exploitation techniques are not so well known. Attendees will also benefit from a state-of-art Hacklab where they can practice the challenges.

A Practical Approach To Malware Analysis And Memory Forensics (3 Days) by Monnappa

This hands-on training teaches the concepts, tools, and techniques to analyze, investigate and hunt malwares by combining two powerful techniques malware analysis and memory forensics.This course will introduce attendees to basics of malware analysis, reverse engineering, Windows internals and memory forensics, it then gradually progresses deep into more advanced concepts of malware analysis & memory forensics. Attendees will learn to perform static, dynamic, code and memory analysis. This course consists of scenario-based hands-on labs after each module which involves analyzing real-world malware samples and infected memory images (crimeware, APT malware, fileless malwares, Rootkits etc). This hands-on training is designed to help attendees gain a better understanding of the subject in short span. Throughout the course, the attendees will learn the latest techniques used by the adversaries to compromise and persist on the system. The training also demonstrates how to integrate the malware analysis and forensics techniques into a custom sandbox to automate the analysis of malicious code. After taking this course attendees will be better equipped with skills to analyze, investigate and respond to malware-related incidents.

The training provides practical guidance and attendees should walk away with the following skills:
