Initial Access with sqlmap
sqlmap is a powerful automation tool for identifying and exploiting SQL injection flaws. Add another tool to your toolbox by using sqlmap to exfiltrate data and gain initial access.
What you'll learn
SQL injection flaws are one of the most critical application vulnerabilities. They can affect any application that uses a database, and a single flaw can lead to data loss or even server compromise. In this course, Initial Access with sqlmap, you'll learn how to use this powerful tool to identify and exploit a variety of SQL injection flaws in a red team environment. First, you'll discover how to setup sqlmap's command line and test authenticated web pages. Next, you'll use sqlmap's built-in enumeration tools to exfiltrate user data. Then, you'll delve into tuning sqlmap's parameters when crawling applications. Finally, you'll exploit a SQL injection to gain initial system access. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of sqlmap needed to streamline the process of finding and exploiting SQL injection flaws.

This course is for anyone who is seeking to learn how to use sqlmap to exploit SQL injections on your next engagement, or if you want to learn how attackers can use these same techniques.
SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is a domain-specific language used in programming and designed for managing data held in a relational database management system, or for stream processing in a relational data stream management system.
SQLmap is an open-source tool used in penetration testing to detect and exploit SQL injection flaws. SQLmap automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection.
SQLmap is an important tool for penetration testers because it makes it easy to create SQL injection attacks, one of the primary techniques that attackers use to compromise databases.
SQL Injection is a web vulnerability caused by mistakes made by programmers. It allows an attacker to send commands to the database that the website or web application communicates with. This, in turn, lets the attacker get data from the database or even modify it.
