The software industry is moving at a greater pace which could be a boon or a bane. Because we have been developing software products which are awesome and also funded by venture capitalists heavily. The bad news is, we have less supply but a greater demand for security testers and secure coders. Even though we have security testers, they are extrinsically motivated and the “intrinsic motivation” part is missing. We keep hearing the news everyday and we wake up to new breaches because there is gap between security testers and blackhat or malicious hackers around the globe. The solution is to educate more people to test for security who are passionate and who want to practice immensely to face the malicious hackers head on.
Hello there, I am Santhosh Tuppad and I started hacking when I was 16. I did not learn to hack through a formal training, but my passion drove me to learn it more and then practice it consistently everyday until today. I have security tested many many web applications, mobile applications, and any kind of software that is open on the web. In this workshop of 3 to 4 hours, I intend to help you with security testing philosophy, mindset and generating the ideas while performing (tool assisted) tests. I will also speak about the dangerous Attacks as they are important for any web application to have these security controls. We will experience the different kinds of attacks using variety of tools and ideas.
After this tiny workshop, you surely need to practice more to get better at security testing, but this workshop will get you started and running. You will also go back to your work with this knowledge and skillset to ask questions to programmers which will reveal state of security of your web applications. Not only questions to programmers, but also questions to the software by performing security tests and attacks in order to find the web application security vulnerabilities.
