We’re excited to announce this opportunity for appsec teams to enhance their skills in API Security and writing business logic tests. We will have a hands-on workshop focused on creating and running business logic tests using Akto. You will learn to write ten different business logic tests, which will then be executed against Juice Shop and other vulnerable apps. The goal of the workshop is to give a hands-on experience in writing and automating custom API security tests related to authentication, authorization and access control issues. The workshop aims to be interactive, engaging, and an enriching learning experience. You will learn the fundamentals of writing, automating, and executing business logic tests.
