About the course:
Learn how to use sqlmap in-depth for professional engagements, and help support open-source in the process. 40% of every sale will be donated to the sqlmap project to help support its development.
sqlmap is the most powerful and widely used SQL injection tool, and for good reason. It packs an impressive array of features and options specifically crafted to fingerprint, enumerate, and takeover databases as well as underlying systems. In this course, we take a look at all of that. We start by looking at the sqlmap project, including how the source code repository is structured, where to find important files such as configuration and payload files, and how to set up a home lab environment to safely and legally practice what we’re learning.
Then, we explore every single option that sqlmap offers with examples and explanations of how and when to use the option(s). We learn tips & tricks to see what sqlmap is doing under the hood and to troubleshoot when we come across issues. Once we’ve covered sqlmap’s options and features, we tie it all together by running through scenarios. This is when we get to see how those options can be used together or on their own to achieve our pentest or bug bounty objectives.
The course also includes sections dedicated to specific topics such as bypassing WAFs and evading security controls, and how to run sqlmap as an API.
My name is Christophe Limpalair, and I have helped thousands of individuals pass IT certifications, learn how to use the cloud, and develop secure applications. I got started in IT at the age of 11 and unintentionally fell into the world of cybersecurity. Fast-forward to today, and I’ve co-founded a fast-growing cybersecurity community, Cybr, that also provides training resources.
As I developed a strong interest in programming and cloud computing, my focus for the past few years has been training thousands of individuals in small, medium, and large businesses (including Fortune 500) on how to use cloud providers (such as Amazon Web Services) efficiently, and how to develop more secure applications.
I’ve taught certification courses such as the AWS Certified Developer, AWS Certified SysOps Administrator, and AWS Certified DevOps Professional, as well as non-certification courses such as Introduction to Application Security (AppSec), SQL Injection Attacks, Introduction to OS Command Injections, Lambda Deep Dive, Backup Strategies, and others.
Working with individual contributors as well as managers, I realized that most were also facing serious challenges when it came to cybersecurity.
Digging deeper, it became clear that there was a lack of training for AppSec specifically. As we explore in the course, SQL injection vulnerabilities can be absolutely devastating when exploited, but preventing SQL injections is actually quite simple. So my goal with this course is to help you get started on your journey of learning the tools, techniques, and concepts to properly find injection vulnerabilities in your own applications (or your client’s).
It’s time to take security into our own hands and to learn how to build more secure software in order to help make the world a safer place! Join me in the course, and we’ll do just that!
I welcome you on your journey to learning more about sqlmap, and I look forward to being your instructor!
