Explore the vulnerabilities and attack vectors associated with GraphQL in this beginner level course. This course delves into the various techniques used by attackers to exploit weaknesses in GraphQL implementations.
Each chapter focuses on a specific vulnerability, providing detailed explanations and real-world examples to ensure a thorough understanding of the risks involved.
Discover how the absence of depth limits in GraphiQL, a powerful GraphQL IDE, can result in Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. Uncover the potential for sensitive data exposure in GraphQL applications. You’ll also get to learn how attackers can abuse GraphQL queries and mutations to retrieve unauthorized information. Understand the impact of IDOR attacks and how to identify and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive resources through GraphQL endpoints.
You’ll round out this course with lessons on how attackers can exploit schema exposure to gather intelligence about an application's underlying structure. Finally, you can delve into the techniques employed by attackers to bypass rate-limiting mechanisms in GraphQL applications.
Gain access to real-world examples, practical exercises, and industry insights that will empower you to identify, mitigate, and defend against the specific vulnerabilities associated with GraphQL.
