It’s been a while since the last time we wrote about the OWASP ZAP – Zed Attack Proxy for Web Application Penetration Testing, back in October 2010.
ZAP is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications. It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing.
ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.
- Intercepting Proxy
- Automated scanner
