March 21, 2017 (at 9 a.m.)

Burp Suite is a powerful integrated platform for web application security. In this hands-on class, attendees will learn how to design and develop Burp Suite extensions for a variety of tasks. In just few hours, we will work on plugins to improve manual security testing efforts as well as to create fully-automated security tools. This workshop is based on real-life use cases where the extension capabilities of the tool can be unleashed to improve efficiency and effectiveness of security auditing. As an attendee, you will bring home a full bag of tricks that will take your web security skills to the next level.

Audience: Suitable for both web application security specialists and developers. Attendees are expected to have rudimental understanding of Burp Suite as well as basic object-oriented programming experience (Burp Extensions will be developed in Java).
