This Security Testing of Web Applications workshop is not yet another run-on-the-mill kind of workshop. The facilitator “Santhosh Tuppad” comes from a “Black Hat Hacker” Mindset, but is a “White-Hat Hacker”. Santhosh is going to start from the minimum basics so that you get the basics and little things right before he takes you through the roller-coaster ride of “Web Application Security Testing” Workshop.
Please note that, this will be mix of theory accompanied with a lot of exercises to work individually and also as a team. You will be equipped with hands-on exercises and also explanation of how an attack works for Authentication, Session Management, Database Hacking, Access Controls (PBAC & RBAC), Tell Tale Signs, Firewalls, IDS, IPS and more (Includes OWASP Top 10 Attacks Demonstration and also hands-on exercises along with deeper explanation). Not only explanation, but hands-on exercises on all minor to major attacks the web application can be vulnerable to. Santhosh has his own crafted exercises for hands-on learning along with some open-source vulnerable apps to help you think broader. It doesn’t just stop here, Santhosh will also help you understand how to fix them or what can be stronger counter-measures once you find the vulnerabilities. Santhosh says, “I am sure that the participants will have exciting times with various emotions in this full-day tutorial”.
One of the core reason of conducting this workshop is to help the world get more Security Testers who can fight against Malicious Hackers around the globe. Santhosh has a great respect for Black-Hat Hackers in terms of the ways they are skilled and his goal is to help “Software Companies” to help their “Users” feel secure by helping more testers to do “Web Application Security Testing”.

Testimonial from one of the participants during RTC 2018 Workshop —
“Before I got a chance to meet Santhosh I have read his great blog regarding software testing and it was very useful for me. But this year I have got a chance to visit Romanian Testing Conference and to be a part of the awesome workshop: “Web & Android: Application Security Testing For Newbies – Basics to Advanced” led by Santhosh. For my opinion that was one of the best opportunity for me to learn much more than how to use the tools. It is about way of thinking, a way of looking from the different perspective and how to think out of the box. I have come with some questions on which I have got answers at the workshop, but as a real motivator and person who knows how to share knowledge to others after that day when the workshop was done, it was much more that I have expected. My expectations were to get answers to some questions and to learn something new. But the real thing is beside answered questions and learned some really useful and interesting stuff I have leave the class with everything above already mentioned in my expectations but I must add that I was also much motivated than ever + I went home with a new set of questions in my head that will keep me moving forward and keep me on the track to improving skills, something that keeps you thinking even when workshop is finished. Thank you, Santhosh for the great workshop, knowledge sharing and at the first thank you for the lesson how to stay ethical by using knowledge and skills to help others.”
