Program Overview

API testing is key for secure web apps and software. APIs are used a lot these days. So, it’s important to keep them safe from cyber threats.

Our API testing training teaches you:

  • How to find API weak spots
  • How to exploit API flaws
  • Common API security risks
  • Checking overall API safety

You’ll learn to test and secure APIs. After the training, you’ll know how to spot and fix API issues. This helps keep web apps and software secure.

API testing is a must in today’s world. Enroll now to master this vital skill!

About The Course

API Penetration Testing is a course that focuses on identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). APIs are essential components of modern web applications, allowing different systems to communicate and exchange data. However, APIs can also be a point of vulnerability, which can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information or disrupt the functionality of the application.

  • Introduction to API Penetration Testing
  • API Security Standards
  • API Threat Modeling
  • API Reconnaissance
  • API Authentication and Authorization Testing
  • API Injection Attacks
  • API Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks
  • API Security Best Practices

Course Content

An API penetration testing course typically covers a range of topics related to assessing the security of application programming interfaces (APIs). Additionally, the course may emphasise best practices for securing APIs and provide insights into the latest trends and developments in API security. Practical hands-on exercises and real-world examples are often incorporated to enhance the learning experience and provide participants with the skills and knowledge needed to conduct effective API penetration tests.
