InfoSec Institute’s OWASP Top 10 Training course prepares you to defend against the 10 most common software vulnerabilities as defined by OWASP. The course is a mix of attention getting lectures, hands on secure coding lab activities and engaging group exercises. You will learn how these vulnerabilities are exploited by hackers, and what you can code securely so you can defend against them.
InfoSec Institute is proud to offer the OWASP Top 10 training course. The primary aim of the OWASP Top 10 is to educate developers, designers, architects and organizations about the consequences of the most important web application security weaknesses. The Top 10 provides basic methods to protect against these high risk problem areas and provides guidance on where to go from there. The Top 10 project is referenced by many standards, books, tools, and organizations, including MITRE, PCI DSS, DISA, FTC, and many more. The OWASP Top 10 was initially released in 2003 and minor updates were made in 2004, 2007, 2010 and this 2013 release.

What You'll LEARN
Created for developers with experience in any programming language, this course focuses on the most common security defects found in Web applications. To do this, each describes in detail each item included in the 2013 OWASP Top 10 list, with both an attention grabbing lecture and a hands-on lab exercise that students complete. This hands-on approach keeps developers engaged and ensures knowledge transfer of critical secure coding techniques.
Allows developers with experience in diverse languages to learn a common body of knowledge since many of the most common issues are not language-specific
Structure testing guidance so that it can be applied by developers or testers
Provided remediation guidance to help eradicate specific issues
Demonstrate how the issues are exploited by attackers
After successfully completing this course, you will:
Understand the role of security in the software development lifecycle and how best to create secure applications
Recognize the details of and the causes behind secure coding errors and mistakes
Understand how these software security defects are exploited
Understand discovery methods for these issues
Understand the practices that help prevent the most common mistakes and lead to more secure software
This course applies to a broad audience. It is designed for professionals whose primary job function includes creating Web applications. This course is also strongly recommended for those involved with architecture and design (product and security architects and designers). Finally, QA security advocates and QA leads will find interest in the course because it improves their capability to incorporate security goals into testing.

"This was a phenomenal class! The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and crafted the exercises so that we truly learned the material. I have a whole new appreciation for how vulnerabilities are exploited. I have gained very practical skills and knowledge in this class which will help me tremendously in my job. I will highly recommend this course to all of my co-workers. This class should be a must for any true security professional. There were several moments during the week when I was amazed at how vulnerable systems truly are. The practical labs and competition teams made the experience fun. I have learned some extremely valuable skills."
"The class was great! The instructor knew his his information very well. It was nice to have someone who is more than just book knowledge, someone who is just giving you the info for the cert test. His hands on experience in real world pen-testing was invaluable, as it gave a touch-stone to how the methods learned in class can be extended to real pen-testing."
"nice to have a dedicated training laptop provided"
"I got a lot out of the real world scenarios presented in class. Jeremy is very knowledgeable in the field of penetration testing. Would definitely take classes again if he is the instructor. The course books are a great reference, and it was nice to have a dedicated training laptop provided by Infosec and not have to bring my own and waste time installing programs during class"
"Dan is an excellent instructor and incredibly knowledgeable. Great presenter and very helpful. The course was very intense but well structured. The hours were long but it really allows you to get your head wrapped around it. Slide notes were very good as well as the lab pre-info. The labs tied well into the course. The content and knowledge gained will be invaluable to my career."
Injection flaws, such as SQL, OS, and LDAP injection occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing unauthorized data.
A2 – Broken Authentication and Session Management
Application functions related to authentication and session management are often not implemented correctly, allowing attackers to compromise passwords, keys, session tokens, or exploit other implementation flaws to assume other users' identities.
A3 – Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
XSS flaws occur whenever an application takes untrusted data and sends it to a web browser without proper validation or escaping. XSS allows attackers to execute scripts in the victim's browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, or redirect the user to malicious sites.
A4 – Insecure Direct Object References
A direct object reference occurs when a developer exposes a reference to an internal implementation object, such as a file, directory, or database key. Without an access control check or other protection, attackers can manipulate these references to access unauthorized data.
A5 – Security Misconfiguration
Good security requires having a secure configuration defined and deployed for the application, frameworks, application server, web server, database server, and platform. All these settings should be defined, implemented, and maintained as many are not shipped with secure defaults. This includes keeping all software up to date.
A6 – Sensitive Data Exposure
Many web applications do not properly protect sensitive data, such as credit cards, tax ids, and authentication credentials. Attackers may steal or modify such weakly protected data to conduct identity theft, credit card fraud, or other crimes. Sensitive data deserves extra protection such as encryption at rest or in transit, as well as special precautions when exchanged with the browser.
A7 – Missing Function Level Access Control
Virtually all web applications verify function level access rights before making that functionality visible in the UI. However, applications need to perform the same access control checks on the server when each function is accessed. If requests are not verified, attackers will be able to forge requests in order to access unauthorized functionality.
A8 - Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim's browser to send a forged HTTP request, including the victim's session cookie and any other automatically included authentication information, to a vulnerable web application. This allows the attacker to force the victim's browser to generate requests the vulnerable application thinks are legitimate requests from the victim.
A9 - Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities
Vulnerable components, such as libraries, frameworks, and other software modules almost always run with full privilege. So, if exploited, they can cause serious data loss or server takeover. Applications using these vulnerable components may undermine their defenses and enable a range of possible attacks and impacts.
A10 – Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards
Web applications frequently redirect and forward users to other pages and websites, and use untrusted data to determine the destination pages. Without proper validation, attackers can redirect victims to phishing or malware sites, or use forwards to access unauthorized pages.
