A step towards becoming a security ninja
Web applications are everywhere and plentiful. In fact, the Web is the de facto delivery mechanism for both consumer-grade and business-critical functionality these days. As such, the Web is also the most common vector for application-level attacks.
To stave off these attacks, companies must build security into their applications during development. Security-related activities that occur early in the SDLC such as architecture risk analysis and secure code review can help prevent many vulnerabilities, but coding errors are inevitable. Web Application Penetration Testing lets organizations find these errors, correct them, and verify that applications meet their required security criteria.
Web application penetration testing requires intricate knowledge of what to test for and how to test it. Without the appropriate breadth and depth, your testing efforts will fail to identify the most important vulnerabilities. Practitioners should possess the following skills:
