Workshop: API Threats Simulation With Open-Source Tools
Do you still think that WAFs and API gateways are effective in protecting exposed APIs against emerging threats? During this workshop Wesley Thijs, CEO at The XSS Rat, demonstrates a variety of the attacks that can easily bypass modern WAFs and hit exposed workloads. So how should you evaluate the effectiveness of your security toolchain and test if they can mitigate API-specific threats?
Topics covered in this workshop:
- What is the difference in attacks against REST, SOAP, graphQL, gRPC APIs today?
- How to simulate API-specific attacks with open source tools?
- How to evaluate an existing security toolchain in protecting your APIs?
