Session Description:

Have you ever thought about getting into web application hacking? Maybe you know a few things and you would like to sharpen your skills in testing modern single page web applications? Well, this is the event for you. In this hands-on hacking workshop, Ben Allen (www.dc207.org) will dig in to one of OWASP's flagship projects, Juice Shop (owasp.org/www-project-juice-shop). Juice Shop emulates an ecommerce web application and is meant to show how modern JavaScript-based applications can be compromised.

In this follow-along workshop we will cover:

  • What OWASP Juice Shop is
  • How to deploy your own Juice Shop on the internet for free
  • How to set your computer up for testing
  • How to hunt for bugs
  • An interactive walk-through of a few challenges
