As someone starting out with application security, this is where you begin. It’s time to discover the fundamentals of AppSec and hone your skills on the industry’s first and most important battleground: the OWASP Top 10. This Learning Path is meant for people looking to gain a firm grasp on the vulnerabilities most often present in applications, how they’re used to attack networks and apps, and best practices to prevent and mitigate them.

At the end of this Learning Path, here’s what you’ll be able to do:

  • Understand how Injection, XXE, Insecure Deserialization, Server-Side Request Forgery, Cross-Site Scripting, and Session Management flaws work on an operational level
  • Use the most common and critical vulnerabilities to attack and breach sensitive apps
  • Use the most effective battle-tested methods to defend your apps against these flaws
  • Experience dealing with real-world attack scenarios most common among enterprise applications

Complete this Learning Path and get certified as an Application Security Engineer.
