Offensive Security Web Expert (OSWE)
Demonstrates fluency in the art of exploiting front-facing web applications
Real World Exams
The OSWE examination is comprised of a virtual network consisting of various web applications and operating systems. The successful examinee will demonstrate their ability to fingerprint the web applications, identify any vulnerabilities found, and successfully exploit them. The candidate is required to submit a comprehensive penetration test report, containing in-depth notes and screen shots detailing their findings. Points are awarded for each compromised host, based on their difficulty and level of access obtained.
Real World Benefits
An OSWE, by definition, is able to identify existing vulnerabilities in web applications using various technologies and execute organized attacks in a controlled and focused manner. An OSWE is able to do more than launch pre-written exploits but is also able to audit code successfully. The twenty-four-hour examination also demonstrates that OSWE’s have a certain degree of persistence and determination. Perhaps more importantly, an OSWE has demonstrated their ability to think “outside the box” and “laterally.”
