Abstract :

GraphQL has gained traction in many organizations, from Twitter and AirBnB to Atlassian and GitHub. It is effectively the front door to some of the most widely used APIs in the world. Despite this fact, it remains a technology many people in AppSec are unfamiliar with and don't know how to test or secure appropriately. In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the GraphQL technology and various means of attacking it. We will also demonstrate the latest release of the InQL tool we developed to assist with automated vulnerability discovery, along with other tools and technologies available in this space. Attendees should expect to gain enough knowledge from this presentation to begin attacking or defending GraphQL installations on their own.
