Problem Statement: - Using some important tools and techniques to test web application

Description: - Create the scripts needed to test api for web applications. This is an important project to understand the implementation of Web Services. You will use postman landscape to execute a api pentesting for web apps.

Problem Statement: - Develop an script to test and avoid RFI attack

Description: - Remote file inclusion occurs when a file from remote web server is inserted into a web application. Misconfiguration of programming language used can lead to RFI attack. As a api pentester you need to avoid any RFI attack possibility.

Problem statement: - Review API responses as per consumers need to avoid API attck through Excessive data exposure.

Description: - Excessive data exposure is a condition where API get exposes to amount of information which is more than the client actual need which makes the processing critical. Attackers take the advantages of this situation to target the API directly in order to retrieve the sensitive information that the client side wouls have filtered out otherwise. It can be avoided by certain preventive measures which you need to understand and practice.
