EC-Council’s Web Application Hacking and Security is a specialization certification that enables you to play, learn, hack, test, and secure web applications from existing and emerging security threats in the industry verticals.
Web Application Hacking and Security has challenges derived from the engaging iLab environments of EC Council – from Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) to the Certified Penetration Testing Professional (CPENT); from Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) .Net to Java. But Web Application Hacking and Security goes beyond this to more difficult scenarios as you advance through each problem.
Web Application Hacking and Security is like a Capture-The-Flag (CTF) competitions meant to test your hacking skills. But you can keep on trying until you achieve the goal. Test your skills and work alone to solve complex problems or follow the instructor as they do a walkthrough to help you learn Web Application Hacking and Security.
Watch your name rise on the leader board, a place where you’ll see who’s cracking the most challenges, who’s making the most progress, who’s cranking out the h@ck$!

100% Performance based Course!
No Death by PowerPoint!
Learn by Doing!
Step By Step Video Instruction
Test your skills and learn to excel in web application security testing. Whether you are a beginner, or an experienced ethical hacker, Web Application Hacking and Security course offers something for all skill levels.
Level up your Skills through Play
You will encounter security misconfigurations, SQL injection vulnerabilities, directory browsing vulnerabilities, enumeration vulnerabilities, and opportunities to escalate privileges and gain access to privileged information.
Each section of ‘Break the Code’ brings progressively more difficult challenges. There are always multiple paths to take, but few will get you the prize and move up the leader board.

How You Will Learn:
Complete Walkthrough Instruction & Challenge Based Environment
Unlike many Capture-the-Flag challenges and Vulnerable Virtual Machines, Web Application Hacking and Security provides the challenger with the ability to follow an instructor as they make their way through the challenges. The instructor will present alternatives, do scans, upload malicious payloads, and crack passwords from their home computer just like you.
– But don’t rely on the walkthrough; challenge yourself and see how far you can get. Play some of the walkthroughs, then pause and try some more.
In the process, you will learn about application vulnerabilities and web application hacking. Even though this will prove useful for other CTF contests, and in cracking VVMs, it will be even more useful to your career as you learn to defend your applications and progress to Web Application Hacking and Security.
What you will learn:
- Advanced Web Application Penetration Testing
- Advanced SQL Injection (SQLi)
- Reflected, Stored and DOM-based Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
- Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) – GET and POST Methods
- Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)
- Security Misconfigurations
- Directory Browsing/Bruteforcing
- Network Scanning

Web Application Hacking and Security Exam Description
The Web Application Hacking and Security program leads to a fully online, remotely proctored practical exam that challenges candidates through a grueling 6-hour performance-based, hands-on exam. The exam assesses candidates’ skills and proficiency on a broad spectrum of OWASP Top-10 web application vulnerabilities and attack vectors. The assessment is not limited to only understanding of automated exploitation frameworks but requires a deep understating of various web application technologies, their inherent and acquired vulnerabilities, and manual exploitation techniques.
The exam focuses on candidates’ proficiency in performing a web application security assessment in real life stressful scenario. Candidates who score more than 60% will earn the Certified Web Application Security Associate certification, candidates who score more than 75% will be awarded the Certified Web Application Professional certification and candidates who score more than 90% attain the prestigious Certified Web Application Expert certification!
Web Application Hacking and Security Exam Process Overview
Web Application Hacking and Security Exam is a fully online, remotely proctored practical exam that challenges candidates through a grueling 6-hour performance-based, hands-on exam.
