Ready to challenge your skills? Getting ready for a CTF or a Cyber Challenge?

Train With CyberQ Skill Pack Challenges

CyberQ Skillpacks are designed to test your skills in a variety of different challenges with limited guidance. Each challenge runs independently as its own “Self-Paced Capture the Flag.” Launching a Skill Pack challenge will reserve your very own space in our CyberQ Data Center, we will raise the Attack Console, as well as the down-range vulnerable targets for you to practice and challenge your skills.

Each challenge includes a set of distinct challenge flags, in order to solve the flags you must perform a variety of procedures in the target environment including basic host discovery, service discovery, vulnerability analysis, attack procedures, privilege escalation, and more.
Please note, this is not a learning lab. Skill packs are designed intentionally with challenges, puzzles, and preconfigured targets that will test your ability to identify, analyze, exploit, and own the targets. If you are new to Cyber and have never participated in a cyber challenge or competition, Skill packs may be too advanced. So, feel free to browse our learning products if this describes you, however, if you are ready for a challenge, enjoy solving complex puzzles and testing your limits, CyberQ challenges are a great way to hone your trade craft.

About Web Application Hacking and Penetration Testing Skill Pack

The evolution of the Internet and web technologies, combined with rapidly increasing Internet connectivity, has led to the emergence of a new business landscape. Web applications are an integral component of online businesses. Everyone connected via the Internet is using various web applications for different purposes, including online shopping, email, chats, and social networking.

Web applications are becoming increasingly vulnerable to more sophisticated threats and attack vectors. Attackers attempt various application-level attacks to compromise the security of web applications to commit fraud or steal sensitive information.

Pen testers and attackers use the web application hacking methodology to gain knowledge of a particular web application to compromise it successfully. This methodology allows them to plan each step to increase their chances of successfully hacking the application. Under this methodology, they do the following to collect detailed information about various resources needed to run or access the web application:

  • Footprint web infrastructure
  • Analyze web applications
  • Bypass client-side controls
  • Attack authentication mechanisms
  • Attack authorization schemes
  • Attack access controls
  • Attack session management mechanisms
  • Perform injection attacks
  • Attack application logic flaws
  • Attack shared environments
  • Attack database connectivity
  • Attack web application clients
  • Attack web services
