eLearnSecurity’s New eWPT Beta Certification
Thank you for your interest in our free beta for INE’s new eLearnSecurity Web Application Penetration Tester certification!
INE’s eLearnSecurity Web Application Penetration Tester (eWPT) is the only practical, hands-on certification exam on the market designed for aspiring Web Application Penetration Testers and Bug Bounty Hunters. The certification exam assesses and validates that the individual has the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to fulfill the role of a modern Web Application Penetration Tester.
The certification covers various topics related to web application security, including but not limited to web application architecture, utilizing web proxies, identifying and exploiting common vulnerabilities (such as SQL injection (SQLi), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), CSRF, etc.), and defensive security best practices for secure coding and testing.
The eWPT certification exam is a practical, skill-based assessment that requires candidates to perform a real-world Web Application Penetration Test in a lab environment and is designed to assess and validate an individual's skills and abilities in identifying and exploiting security vulnerabilities within modern web applications.
