Training Announcement:
Administering and Configuring F5 Advanced WAF


Training with the experts at Nexum 

Learn to deploy and operate F5 Advanced WAF to protect web applications from the most critical security risks as described in the OWASP Top 10 list, from bots and other automated agents, and from Denial of Service (DoS) attacks operating at the HTTP layer of the web application delivery ecosystem. Through a combination of lecture, hands-on labs, and discussion, secure applications from the majority of common attacks by the end of the first day. Take technical deep dives into mitigating web scraping, account aggregation, account creation, ad fraud, CAPTCHA defeat, card cracking, carding, cashing out, credential stuffing, and other unwanted automated application abuse as described in the OWASP automated threats list.

Observe various vulnerability mitigations in real time by playing the role of an attacker in lab exercises. Gain context for securing applications, including analysis of HTTP and the elements of both modern and traditional web applications such as file types, parameters, URLs, and login pages. Learn to recognize client and server-side technologies such as JSON and AJAX, and learn to address vulnerabilities that might be present in common application development tools such as PHP, AngularJS, and others.

Review recommended practices for reporting, security event logging, and integration with third-party web application vulnerability scanners in detail. Follow prescribed step-by-step directions for activities initially, and gradually gain proficiency so that, by the end of class, little or no instruction is needed to complete simple to more complex configurations.
