Advanced Web Hacking Training

Our 4 day advanced web hacking training class

This fast-paced web hacking training class gives attendees an insight into advanced web hacking. The team has built a state-of-the-art hacklab and recreated security vulnerabilities based on real-life penetration tests and real bug bounties seen in the wild.

The course is available directly from Claranet Cyber Security or you can book through one of our partners. The course is now available as live, online training and can be delivered for you individually or for your company. Contact us below with your requirements

The AWH course has been excellent with 100% positive feedback. We've appreciated ourselves how much work must have gone into the labs, they are very strong and reflect the real world, so we've been thrilled. The trainers are great, very knowledgable and engaging.

Really liked the training. Advanced stuff covered a lot of not so easy to find scenarios. Hats off on the efforts in building the practice labs

Is this course right for you?:

If you wonder:

  • Are there a ways to effectively exfiltrate data using Out of Band Techniques for certain Vulnerabilities?
  • Are there ways to Pen Test encrypted parameters to find vulnerabilities?
  • Are there ways to bypass SSO functionalities?
  • Are there ways to find SQL injection vulnerabilities not detected by Automated tools?
  • Are there ways to break weak crypto implementations?
  • Would there be an effective way to bypass password reset functionalities?
  • What are the different things i can do with SSRF vulnerabilities?
  • How can deserialization vulnerabilities be exploited?

Then you have come to the right place. Advanced Web hacking teaches you all of these.

Delegates receive:

  • Delegates can access our online lab which is purposely riddled with multiple vulnerabilities
  • Delegates will receive demonstrations and hands-on practice of the vulnerabilities to better understand and grasp the issues
  • Numerous scripts and tools for advanced attacks
  • A PDF copy of all course materials used during the course including instructor slide deck, tool cheat sheets and walkthrough guides
  • Access to NotSoSecure’s Advanced Web Hacking lab for 30 days after course completion

For security and IT decision makers

What’s the real impact of training your team through NotSoSecure?

Harden your perimeter, lower the risk of compromise, and make your organisation a less attractive target for attackers by building a team that can identify, test, and guide developers to secure web-based vulnerabilities. Trained delegates can:

  • Perform security testing to identify and safely exploit complex web vulnerabilities that get missed by scanners and other automated tools – this can help you detect vulnerabilities and recommend patching accordingly.
  • Design this testing around real-world attacker behaviour and tooling, making it relevant to the threats facing your organisation.
  • Customise offensive tooling to generate tailored (rather than “out of the box”) payloads that lead to more advanced testing.
  • Recommend measures to circumvent any conditions that could lead to the emergence of vulnerabilities.
  • Understand the business impact of web vulnerabilities and articulate this to key stakeholders.
  • Take on greater responsibility in the team and become an advocate of security in the wider business.

Advanced Web Hacking course talks about a wealth of hacking techniques to compromise web applications, APIs and associated end-points. This course focuses on specific areas of app-sec and on advanced vulnerability identification and exploitation techniques (especially server side flaws). This hands-on course covers neat, new and ridiculous hacks which affected real life products and have found a mention in real bug-bounty programs. In this course vulnerabilities selected are ones that typically go undetected by modern scanners or the exploitation techniques are not so well known.

Learning Objectives:

  • Modern JWT, SAML, oauth bugs
  • Business logic and crypto flaws
  • RCE via Java Serialisation, Object, OGNL and template injection
  • Exploitation over DNS channels
  • Advanced SSRF, HPP, XXE and SQLi topics
  • Attack chaining and real life examples

This course is an action-packed web hacking course 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.

Who should attend

Web Developers, SOC Analysts who wonder types ofattacks Pen Testers use to find flaws in the applications. Entry/Intermediate level Pen Testers who want to know; what’s next? What are the advanced level attacks through which they can exploit vulnerabilities?; Network Engineers, Security Architects, enthusiasts who want to stay updated with the latests trends in Web application Hacks; Any technical person having a basic knowledge of how web applications work


The requirement for this course is that you bring your own laptop with at least 4 GB RAM and 20 GB of free disk space and have admin/root access, along with the capability to run Kali Linux Image from Virtual Box. Familiarity with Burp Suite will be beneficial for this course.
