Professionally Evil Application Security

The Professionally Evil Application Security (PEAS) course is designed to teach developers, IT professionals, and penetration testers of all skill levels.  This course focuses on the techniques used to assess and exploit applications; including web and mobile applications, APIs, and HTTP-based systems.  We combine these techniques with explanations of the risks exposed and defenses required to improve the security of your organization.  The course uses a large number of hands-on exercises to reinforce the techniques and understanding an attendee will gain so that they benefit on the very first day back to work.  The course focuses on manual techniques for discovery and exploitation while teaching an industry-standard methodology of reconnaissance, mapping, discovery, and exploitation.  This methodology provides a comprehensive standard for assessing applications and APIs.

OWASP Top 10

Since 2003, OWASP has released the Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks list.  It has been the basis of much development and consternation, but do you really understand what each of these issues and their corresponding controls mean?  As a developer, do you know how to prevent these issues?  As a security professional, do you truly know what they are and how to evaluate their effectiveness?

In this course, Secure Ideas will walk attendees through the various items in the latest OWASP Top 10 and corresponding controls.  Students will leverage modern applications to explore how the vulnerabilities work and how to find them in their own applications.

Red Team Fundamentals for Active Directory

The Red Team Fundamentals for Active Directory course is an 8-hour class focused on explaining the fundamentals of Active Directory and how different aspects can be exploited when performing penetration tests.  The goal is not only to cover different attacks but also explain the details of why they work and how an environment can be made resilient to them and potentially detect malicious activity.  This combination opens the course to those looking to hone their offensive skills as well as those who are protecting an enterprise network.

The course mixes lecture with a number of hands-on exercises to reinforce the information and techniques.  The activities will cover ways to examine an Active Directory environment, looking for a variety of misconfigurations that are commonly seen in Active Directory implementations (even by some security conscious entities), and then exploit these issues to pivot and escalate our access. Ultimately, the students will gain full control of an AD Forest.

While in class, students will be provided access to a lab containing realistic targets and tools to learn both the attacks and defenses of Active Directory.  This environment enables the attendees to understand how the covered techniques are used in the real world.

Professionally Evil Container Security

This course is designed to cover the core fundamentals of container and container orchestration security.  We’ll explore container security concerns, configuration issues, and how to abuse them as an attacker.  Then we’ll switch gears and explore the ways that we can prevent the attacks we just carried out.  This will all be done in a hands-on lab driven manner.  This class is focused primarily on Docker and Kubernetes but many of the core concepts can be applied to other container technologies.

Professionally Evil API Testing

This workshop-style intermediate course is designed to complement a student’s understanding of traditional Web Application Security.  It focuses on modern application and API security features and tactics to protect APIs and microservices from attacks.  Because the material in this course leans on standard HTTP and browser features, and standard web and API security best practices, the lessons and labs are applicable across programming languages and platform implementations.  This material in this course is approached both from the perspective of an adversary and that of a defender.
