OAES (Offensive API Exploitation and Security) is an industry-specific program that focuses on offensive exploitation and security of an API. This course is an advanced, hands-on, practical program where each candidate is given a custom VM developed specifically for API penetration testing, and all tools are configured to verify safety defects in modern APIs.
API stands for Application Programming Interface which is widely used on the internet for Web Application, mobile, IoT, desktop applications, and much more as shown in examples above. The modern application uses the API to call or execute the actions or the activities of the user. Customers or service users are exposed to the API architecture or structure.
API Pentesting
The REST API uses multiple processing requests such as GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, OPTIONS, PROPFIND etc. This helps the user to understand the API's structure and use this information attack API further. This understanding of API can be used to exploit the API.
Hacker Associate has launched an industry-specific API Exploitation Program with a completely hands-on course, and advanced CTF (capture the flag) labs are introduced for each candidate. This OAES 308 Certification program will focus on complete API exploitation and defence techniques. We will dive deep in detail into all the standards like SOAP, XML, REST, and GRAPH QL, and best practices.
We will also learn how we can penetrate cloud-based Web API and will go through advanced technique and industry best practices for a modern web application, mobile app, and desktop applications.
