Workshop: Hacking APIs and the MEAN Stack with OWASP DevSlop

Modern applications often use APIs and other micro services to deliver faster and better products and services. However, there are currently few training grounds for security testing in such areas. In comes DevSlop, OWASP's newest project, a collection of DevOps security disasters made as a vulnerable testing and proving ground for developers and security testers alike. DevSlop's Pixi, the first of many entries to come for this OWASP project, will be demonstrated and presenting for participant's hacking and learning pleasure. Pixi consists of vulnerable web services, and participants will be walked through how to exploit several of it's vulnerabilities so they can learn how to do better when they create their own web services and other types of APIs from now on.

What will be discussed?

MEAN Stack, API and Web Service Hacking & OWASP Project DevSlop
