Training September 7th & 8th

T1. Web Security Testing - 2-Days - $1350
This course is a deep dive into the world of web application security testing. It is designed to walk testers through every step of web application penetration testing, arming them with the knowledge and tools they will need to begin conducting their own security testing. The course will teach the participants how to think like a security engineer by creating and executing a security test plan. Participants will be exposed to common web application vulnerabilities, testing techniques and tools by a professional security tester.

The course includes a guided penetration test in which the students will execute security test with the help of the instructor.

T2. Building Secure Ajax and Web 2.0 Applications - 2-Days - $1350
This two-day class will cover common Web 2.0 and AJAX security threats, vulnerabilities, and it will provide specific guidance on how to develop Web 2.0 applications to defend against these threats and vulnerabilities.

Training developers on secure coding practices offers one of highest returns on investment of any security investment by eliminating vulnerabilities at the source. Aspect’s Building Secure Ajax and Web 2.0 Applications Course enables developers to securely utilize Web 2.0 technologies in their web applications without introducing security issues. The course provides detailed examples of ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do.' The class is lead by an experienced developer and delivered in a very interactive manner. The course will use demonstrations, code examples, and spot-the-bug exercises to get developers engaged in the topic. Developers will leave with an understanding of how Ajax attacks work, the impacts of successful attacks, and what to do to defend against them.

T3. Assessing and Exploiting Web Applications with Samurai - WTF - 2-Days - $1350

Come take the official Samurai-WTF training course given by one of the founders and lead developers of the project! You will learn how to use the latest Samurai-WTF open source tools and the be shown the latest techniques to perform web application assessments. After a quick overview of pen testing methodology, the instructor will lead you through the penetration and exploitation of three different web applications, and the browsers connecting to them. Different sets of open source tools will be used on each web application, allow you to learn first hand the pros and cons of each tool. After you have gained experience with the Samurai-WTF tools, you will be challenged with a fourth web application that contains keys you must find and collect. This final challenge will give you time to practice your new skills at your own pace and experiment with your favorite new tools. This experience will help you gain the confidence necessary to perform web application assessments and expose you to the wealth of freely available open source tools.

T4. Application Security Leadership Essentials - 2-Days - $1350
In this two-day management session you’ll get an industry perspective of application security, understand the key vulnerabilities to applications, be able to analyze root cause, and provide practical and proven techniques in building out an application security initiative. This course gives executives and managers the education and practical guidance they need to ensure that software projects properly address security. The course is designed to provide a firm understanding of the importance of software security, the critical security activities required within the software development lifecycle, and how to efficiently manage security issues during development and maintenance. This understanding is reinforced through industry awareness, live demonstrations of commonly found application vulnerabilities and workgroup exercises allowing attendees to conduct capability assessments and recommend improvement plans.

T5. Software Security Remediation: How to Fix Application Vulnerabilities 1-Day - Sept 7th- $675
This class teaches attendees how to fix security vulnerabilities in existing software. It provides a mix of discussion of project concerns for planning and managing remediation efforts with hands-on coding examples fixing specific vulnerabilities. Attendees will learn how to risk-rank vulnerabilities, estimate remediation tasks, perform coding fixes for vulnerabilities and demonstrate the effectiveness of fixes applied. The focus is on the practical: how to use limited resources to make significant improvements to the security of target applications. Code examples use the OWASP ESAPI Java and Microsoft Web Protection Library. Many classes teach developers how to build secure code from the ground up or teach security analysts how to test applications for security vulnerabilities. This class teaches developers and security analysts how to deal with their existing portfolio of insecure applications.

T6. Live CD 1-Day - Sept 8th- $675
This class will will cover the full range of tools and documentation that OWASP provides under free and open licenses. When the class is complete, students will be familiar with a wide range of tools and techniques to test web applications.

The class will include a DVD of OWASP tools and documentation for testing web applications. Additionally, the DVD will include the OWASP Web Testing Environment. OWASP WTE is a collection of tools and documentation for testing web applications available both as a bootable Live CD and virtual machines. Attendees to this class will receive a customized version of OWASP WTE. It will be provided as a virtual machine which includes the tools, documentation and the applications tested during class. It is a self-contained environment to learn web application testing the students can take from class to further hone their testing skills.

Students are encouraged to bring a laptop to class. The virtualization software for OWASP WTE runs on Windows, OS X and Linux. Students with a laptop can follow along with the in class demonstrations to get hands on testing experience
