HTTP Badge


In this challenge, you need to send a POST request to /pentesterlab with the body containing the following XML: `[VALUE]`. Replace [VALUE] with `` and set the Content-Type header to application/xml. Initially, it is recommended to solve this challenge using curl. Afterward, you can write a snippet of code in your favorite language to automate the task. This will help you build a collection of reusable scripts for future use.

The video transcript provides a step-by-step guide on how to execute this task using the terminal. It emphasizes the importance of correctly encoding special characters like less than (`<`) and greater than (`>`) in the XML. By following the instructions and using curl, you will be able to successfully complete the lab and obtain the key for the challenge. This exercise is part of the HTTP badge series in Pentesterlab, designed to enhance your understanding of HTTP requests.
