Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE) is an advanced web application security review course. We teach the skills needed to conduct white box web app penetration tests.
Students will learn how to:
- perform a deep analysis of decompiled code,
- identify logical vulnerabilities many scanners aren’t equipped to find, and
- exploit vulnerabilities by chaining them into complex attacks.
We recommend it as an option for skills specialization after completing PWK .
Students who complete the course and pass the exam earn the Offensive Security Web Expert (OSWE) certification, demonstrating mastery in exploiting front-facing web apps.
