Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation

Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation

The creators of Kali Linux developed the industry-leading web application security course Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE).

AWAE is an online, self-paced course to learn how to secure web apps with primarily white box methods. Students will learn how to perform a deep analysis of decompiled code and exploit vulnerabilities by chaining them into complex attacks.

This advanced course is designed for:

  • Experienced penetration testers who want to better understand white box web app pentesting
  • Web application security specialists
  • Web professionals working with the codebase and security infrastructure of a web application (software engineer, full stack web developer, etc)

We recommend it as an option for skills specialization after completing Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PWK)Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PWK), for students who are comfortable reading and writing code.
