Overview of the courses
Crash course in Penetration Testing
Joe McCray, and Chris Gates
This course will cover some of the newer aspects of penetration testing such as Open Source Intelligence Gathering with Maltego and other Open Source tools.
Advanced Scanning, Enumeration, Exploitation (remote and client-side), and Post-Exploitation relying heavily on the features included in the Metasploit Framework will also be covered.
Emphasis throughout the entire workshop will be placed on being as stealthy as possible, and dealing with popular defensive technologies such as:
- Network Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems - Host-Based Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems - Web Application Firewalls - Anti-Virus - Content-Filtering Proxies
Web Application penetration testing will be covered as well with focus on practical exploitation of cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery (CSRF), local/remote file includes, and SQL Injection.

Web 2.0 Hacking – Attacks and Defense
Introduction and adaptation of new technologies like Ajax, Rich Internet Applications and Web Services has changed the dimension of Application Hacking. We are witnessing new ways of hacking web based applications and it needs better understanding of technologies to secure applications. The only constant in this space is change. In this dynamically changing scenario in the era of Web 2.0 it is important to understand new threats that emerge in order to build constructive strategies to protect corporate application assets. Application layers are evolving and lot of client side attack vectors are on the rise like Ajax based XSS, CSRF, Widget injections, RSS exploits, Mashup manipulations and client side logic exploitations. At the same time various new attack vectors are evolving around SOA by attacking SOAP, XML-RPC and REST. It is time to understand these advanced attack vectors and defense strategies.
The course is designed by the author of "Web Hacking: Attacks and Defense", “Hacking Web Services” and “Web 2.0 Security – Defending Ajax, RIA and SOA” bringing his experience in application security and research as part of curriculum to address new challenges. Application Hacking 2.0 is hands-on class. The class features real life cases, hands one exercises, new scanning tools and defense mechanisms. Participants would be methodically exposed to various different attack vectors and exploits. In the class instructor will explain new tools like wsScanner, scanweb2.0, AppMap, AppCodeScan etc. for better pen-testing and application audits.

Social Engineering testing for IT Security professionals
Social engineering is the use of deception or impersonation to gain unauthorised access to sensitive information or facilities. Because computer security is becoming more sophisticated, hackers are combining their technical expertise with social engineering to gain access to sensitive information or valuable resources in your organisation.
Social engineering attacks can have disastrous consequences, both financially and reputationally. You can have the best technical security controls in the world, from the most expensive firewall to the most sophisticated biometrics, but they will not protect you from a social engineering attack. In any security programme people are the weakest link. Social engineering tests can be used to evaluate and strengthen this link.
Like any penetration test, social engineering tests can help to identify security weaknesses that could allow your information to be compromised. Such tests can:
* Give a good indication of and even improve your staff’s level of security awareness * Teach your staff how to identify and deal with social engineering situations * Provide valuable recommendations on both security awareness and physical security
