Practical Web Application Security Training
Cyber Shield is a National Guard exercise, in cooperation with USAR and USMCR, to conduct defensive cyber operations (DCO) training and assessment for DCO-Elements (DCOE), Cybersecurity detachments/cells, and Cyber Protection teams (CPTs) virtually during the week of July 12th thru July 16th 2021. Cyber Shield provides a collective training event for these teams and sets the conditions for evaluation against Army/Joint standards, including: Network Defense, Forensic Analysis, Reporting and Mitigation, Incident Response, etc.
Understanding web application security is key to successful web application penetration testing. We will explore web technology, including protocols, languages, clients, and server architectures. Students will learn how to collect open source intelligence (OSINT) to assist in exploiting web applications. The OWASP methodology provides a basis for delivering of high-quality assessments as well as learn tools for the pentester’s utility belt.
