COURSE SYLLABUS


Module 0

Before the course

An introductory module.

  • Basic system and Environment setup
  • Kali Linux, Ubuntu bare metal or VM

Module 1

Getting started

When approaching Blockchain technologies, it’s always a great idea to organize your workspace in a manner that promotes a positive learning environment. Efficiency is key when establishing your space, just keep the ‘less is more’ mindset when designing your area.  Within this module, we will be discussing the installation steps for all of our tools and environments we will be using for this course.

  • Postman installation and setup
  • Coinpath setup
  • Contract Fuzzer installation and setup
  • Test case APIs we will use throughout this course
  • Exercise explanation

Practical graded assignments:

  • Installation and setup of tools in the environment of choice.
  • Provide screenshots of successful installation and setup.
  • Provide screenshots of the implemented test case APIs provided by the instructor.

Module 2

API analysis

In this module, we will be analyzing our test case APIs with Coinpath and Contract Fuzzer to discover potential vulnerabilities.

  • Identify vulnerabilities within the test case API.
  • Scrutinize output and classify the potential vulnerabilities.
  • Exercise explanation.

Practical graded assignments:

  • Provide screenshots of output from tools covered in the module.
  • Provide code snippets of potential vulnerabilities.

Module 3

Exploiting vulnerabilities found

In this module, we will be exploiting the information we have gathered in a variety of ways with a varied set of tools. We will explore some, but not all, of the potential impact these vulnerabilities can have in regards to the API.

  • Exploiting information gathered from test API.
  • Impact of vulnerabilities.
  • Explore impact to blockchain API driven supply chain.
  • Exercise explanation.

Practical graded assignments:

  • Proof of work in the form of screenshots of discovered vulnerabilities.
  • Proof of work that displays terminal output.

Module 4

Wrap up and next steps

In this module, we will be discussing how this newly gained knowledge can translate into making you a better security professional. Whether you are part of a Red Team or a lone pentester, being able to compromise blockchain-based APIs is a great skill set to enhance your abilities.

Discuss new technologies to look for in the future in regards to blockchain API/OS and how they could be implemented and exploited.

Practical graded assignments:

Provide screenshots and a quick synopsis of the technology as well as a way to exploit the tech.


Final exam

Comprehensive exam covering overall methods and functionality of framework. Matching outputs to the corresponding tools. T/F questions on modules and libraries.

Quiz: 25 questions
