About the course
In this course we will be teaching you a very important way of hacking and building APIs with practical labs and examples. You will get a feel for these issues sooner than you can say “API”.
With the rise of software and web applications we need to make sure to protect them as carefully as possible. This guide will be your handbook in your journey for testers, managers and software developers.
We will bring you from a beginner to an advances level in no time and with our practical examples you will even learn how to use and install an API firewall.
I am the XSS Rat, an experienced ethical hacker who stands for quality and who believes knowledge is a building block we can all use to grow bigger than we ever were. As a software tester I have a unique skill set that centres around logic flaws and IDORs which I have not seen very much by other hunters. This gives me the advantage of finding less duplicates and maximising my chance of finding a vulnerability by picking the correct target and applying the correct test strategy.
