I am a lerker here and occasionally I post (and log in). Today I am posting about GWAPT. I have found several threads here pointing out information about the exam but what I was wondering is if any one here has actually challenged it? I am being tasked with security our web severs and web code and I was thinking about studying for the GWAPT. I already have the web application hackers handbook and I am reviewing the OWASP testing guide. I plan to finish both as soon as possible. I also would like to take the So you want to learn web application hacking course and elearnsecurity before I attempt this (as well as complete C|EH eCPPT and a few others). I was just wondering if 8-9 months would be enough for a total noob to get to this level. Any thoughts?
I have been somewhat thrown into a infosec position (and I am happy ) I have the certs listed in my signature and I am working on the SSCP as we speak. I would like to work on layer 3-7 security so I'd like GSEC, GCIA, GPEN and GWAPT. My current position is becoming oriented in the direction of those 4 certs but I can't afford them all (even if I did challenge). At best I would be able to do GCIA and GWAPT (which are two I really, really want anyway).
