"Black Hat GraphQL is the best resource for anyone looking to test GraphQL for vulnerabilities. Not only did Aleks and Farhi write the book, but they also created the vulnerable application used in the books labs and created a suite of tools specially designed for analyzing weaknesses within GraphQL APIs. This is a must-read book for those in API security."
—Corey Ball, author of Hacking APIs
"This book brought me from zero to ‘incredibly dangerous’ in ten chapters. The authors break down complex topics, making them easy to understand, as well as outlining pros and cons of each feature, tool, and tactic. The book also has quite a bit of foreshadowing, mentioning how certain parts of GraphQL work, and how they will be exploited later. The authors share not only several hands-on labs, but several tools they created themselves and open-sourced for all to use. If you are going to be PenTesting GraphQL systems, or are charged with protecting such a system, this book is a must-have."
—Tanya Janca, founder of We Hack Purple
“With the increasing number of web platforms built on top of GraphQL, this book is an essential resource for all security practitioners. By covering both the basics and advanced topics, Nick and Dolev have created the ultimate guide to hacking GraphQL.”
— Luca Carettoni, Doyensec
"Knowing how to secure GraphQL is often the first question most users have after they have that "ah ha!" moment about how cool it is. While Apollo and others have written a lot of great documentation on best security practices, Black Hat GraphQL is the most comprehensive look from the other side. This is not just a book for red teamers or penetration testers. Any GraphQL developer will learn a lot here."
—Tad Whitaker, Apollo GraphQL
I study my way up in cybersecurity, in part, through books. While many of the books I use don't actually bring something new to the table, Black Hat GraphQL
is definitely an exception. My copy, believe it or not, is oversaturated with highlights. And that probably says it all."
