You'll learn how REST and GraphQL APIs work in the wild and set up a streamlined API testing lab with Burp Suite and Postman. Then you'll master tools useful for reconnaissance, endpoint analysis, and fuzzing, such as Kiterunner. Next, you'll learn to perform common attacks, like those targeting an API's authentication mechanisms and the injection vulnerabilities commonly found in web applications. You'll also learn techniques for bypassing protections against these attacks so that you can uncover API bugs other hackers aren't finding and improve the security of applications on the web.
