WAHS: Web Application Hacking and Security
Web Application Hacking and Security has challenges derived from the engaging iLab environments of EC Council – from Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) to a Certified Penetration Testing Professional (CPENT); from Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) .Net to Java. But Web Application Hacking and Security goes beyond this to more difficult scenarios as you advance through each problem.
Web Application Hacking and Security is like a Capture-The-Flag (CTF) competition meant to test your hacking skills. But you can keep on trying until you achieve the goal. Test your skills and work alone to solve complex problems or follow the instructor as they do a walkthrough to help you learn Web Application Hacking and Security.
