Web3 technology and decentralized applications (dApps) are becoming increasingly popular with the rise of blockchain-based platforms like Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and Polkadot. However, with the increasing adoption of web3 technology, the complexity of securing decentralized applications is also increasing. In this course, students will learn about the most advanced vulnerabilities and attack vectors in web3 applications and how to defend against them.
The course will start with an introduction to web3 technology and dApp architecture, followed by a deep dive into the most advanced types of vulnerabilities in web3 applications, including smart contract vulnerabilities, front-end attacks, and blockchain-specific attacks. Students will also learn about the latest attack frameworks and tools used by attackers. We will discuss real-world case studies of web3 attacks and defenses, including the DAO attack, the Parity wallet hack, and the Binance Smart Chain exploit. Students will gain practical experience by exploiting vulnerabilities in a test network and defending against simulated attacks.
The course will then cover defensive strategies for securing web3 applications, including secure smart contract development, web3 security best practices, and secure application design. Students will learn how to use web3 libraries and tools to implement security measures, such as Web3.js, Truffle, and OpenZeppelin.
The course will also cover advanced topics in web3 security research, including static and dynamic analysis of smart contracts, blockchain forensic analysis, and attack modeling. Students will gain practical experience by exploiting vulnerabilities in a test network and defending against simulated attacks using advanced security measures.
Finally, the course will cover emerging trends in web3 security, including the impact of quantum computing on web3 security, and the evolution of decentralized threat intelligence and security protocols.
Upon completion of the course, students will have an advanced understanding of web3 security risks and best practices for developing secure dApps. They will be able to identify and exploit the most advanced vulnerabilities in web3 applications, as well as implement the most advanced security measures to defend against attacks. They will also have hands-on experience using advanced web3 security tools and frameworks.
