Penetration testing without using Burp Suite couldn’t be even assumed. This course unleashes the power of pen-testing with Burp Suite Professional and the free edition. Both editions have some changes in capabilities. Both editions have been covered widely in this course. As in general penetration testing of web applications, many serious vulnerabilities are left, such as blind XSS, that can cause the whole server to be compromised, this is where the Burp Suite plays a great and exceptional role in web security audit and penetration testing for every web penetration tester. Apart from blind XSS, Burp Suite is capable of hunting for hidden security flaws that once we send the payloads to the target, many times it is executed but since the responses are filtered by web application firewalls and security devices, we stop there. But with Burp modules, like Collaborator, it could be bypassed using out-of-band channels. Hunting for clickjacking, there are no perfect methods but that too can be tested full-fledged using Burp Suite Pro. Similarly, many vulnerabilities will be uncovered in this course that are not found generally.

Module 1: Preparing the arsenal / Burp Suite environments

In this module, we will start with setting up Burp Suite environments and play with various features of Burp Suite Professional and Burp Suite free edition to get around the working, spidering, SSL/TLS setup, automation, rewriting host-header, intercepting mobile devices traffic for mobile testing, invisible proxying for thick clients, CA certificate for SSL sites, setting the scope for engagement, identifying input parameters and setting various filters.

Module 1 covered topics:

  • Lab environments config
  • Burp CA certificate for SSL/TLS
  • Interceptor proxy with filters
  • Spidering target to get all around
  • Automated targeting the site in scope
  • Spider setup for crawl
  • Invisible proxying for non-proxy aware clients
  • Host-header rewriting
  • Web sockets
  • Intercepting mobile devices traffic with Burp Suite – iPhone

Module 1 exercises:

  • Explore and make configuration for a pentest engagement
  • Configure and use non-proxy aware clients
  • Automate and filter spider, target site map
  • Rewrite host header
  • Use various filters to suite your needs

Module 2: Advanced Intruder, repeater and Auth attacks

Module 2 description: In this module, we will start tinkering with the repeater module to make a point-to-point attack. Intruder module will be used in more advanced ways with hunting for insecure direct object reference attack and placing payloads at multiple points in single attack with snipper, cluster bomb, pitch fork and battering arm. Further attacks -  bit flipping, hidden form field attack, data extraction from response, authorization and authentication attacks, brute forcing every parameters and various automated attacks to find hidden directories.

Module 2 covered topics:

  • Repeater module – Exploitations
  • Advanced Intruder module attacks
  • Payloads placement for multiple injections
  • Sniper attacks, Battering arm, pitch fork, Cluster Bomb
  • Data extraction
  • Custom exploits with intruder
  • Response header manipulation
  • Attacking hidden form fields
  • Extended Burp macros with intruder
  • Payloads for bit-flipping, brute forcing
  • Auth module
  • Attacks users – Insecure direct object reference

Module 2 exercises:

  • Use Intruder module to brute force login pages, directories and Insecure direct object response attack
  • Use payloads positioning – bit flipping, brute forcer, character frobber, null payloads, date, numbers
  • Manipulate response headers

Module 3: Hunting for security flaws and WAF bypass

Module 3 description: In this module, we will discover the most hidden functionalities of web application using Burp Suite, such as invisible functions, scanner module of Burp Suite Pro to uncover serious bugs, extending the Burp capabilities by Bapp store and extensions. We will also know how to develop our own extensions using Burp extender APIs. Further attacking and bypassing web application firewalls, CSRF, CO2 attacks.

Module 3 covered topics:

  • Content discovery of invisible functionalities
  • Manual testing simulator
  • Scanner issue definitions
  • Scanning methodologies
  • Scanning to exploitation ways
  • Burp Extender APIs
  • Burp Extensions to extend the attacks
  • Building your own extensions
  • CO2 attack
  • Csurfer
  • Bypassing WAF

Module 3 exercises:

  • Explore the Burp Suite Professional – pro users
  • Discover the content for hidden functionalities – both users
  • Use the various extensions from BApp store

Module 4: Burp Suite unleashed/Hunting and exploitations

In this module, the Burp Suite has unleashed its power to a high level of web application testing. We will use auto-submit CSRF scripts, generate PoC, session analysis of tokens to attack authentication and authorization, Burp Collaborator for hunting hidden bugs and security flaws that will not be caught in other pentesting, like blind XSS. Moving towards the most dangerous attack types – Clickjacking will be uncovered by Burp Clickbandit. And further we will hunt for many serious bugs using Burp Infiltrator and Out-of-Band security testing.

Module 4 covered topics:

  • Self-submitting scripts for CSRF
  • Anti-CSRF token attack
  • Generating CSRF PoC
  • Live and manual capture of session tokens

  1. Mastering Burp Suite Professional (W36)


    Valuable course. Even if you’re familiar with Burp its a good review. I would recommend the course include more examples of the demos showing the various Burp features

  2. Go through Mastering Burp Suite Course


    I already passed several courses related to testing with BurpSuite and because I’m using BurpSuite more than 6 years on daily scope I could say Yes, I’m not begginer at all, but still this course was valuable for me to better understand new things integrated into BurpSuite (Clickbandit, BurpCollaborator…).

    I could only recommend this course. Good prize for valuable content.
