Ted Harrington, Executive Partner at Independent Security Evaluators (ISE)
What is penetration testing anyways?
It's probably not what you think it is. You're building an application and need to prove it's secure, so you go get some penetration testing. But what are you actually getting?
In this talk, author Ted Harrington takes you to the front lines of ethical hacking and security research, blending real-world exploit stories with actionable insights in order to help you understand what penetration testing is, what it isn't, how to tell the difference, and determine what you might actually need. You'll learn how hackers break applications, and you'll walk away with practical guidance about how to:
- Abuse functionality
- Chain vulnerabilities
- And much more
