Review this project.

The Zed Attack Proxy (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.

ZAP 2.3.0 is now available! Download it here:

ZAP is taking part in the Google Summer of Code 2014. See the OWASP wiki for suggested projects. And if you have any questions about this please ask them on the ZAP dev group

ZAP Is the Top Security Tool of 2013 as voted by ToolsWatch.org readers!

2014 June 5: International Testing Conference, Tallinn, Estonia Dan Billing: New Adventures in Security

Learning new skills and experiences are key to developing any career, but in the rapidly changing world of software testing it is particularly necessary. Recently my work has led me to need to develop my security testing skills, but more than that it has opened doors into a whole new world of skills and techniques, and I am still learning more and more.

This track explores how I have approached the problems I have encountered, formulated my learning, and how I have developed an understanding of the key features of security testing in an accessible way.

Rating: Projects/OWASP Zed Attack Proxy Project/GPC/Assessment/ZAP 2.3.0
last reviewed release
ZAP 1.3.0 - 06/06/2011 - (download)
Release description: This release includes the following significant changes:
  • Fuzzing: Strings in a response can now be fuzzed to try to find vulnerabilities. Anti CRSF tokens can be detected and automatically regenerated when fuzzing. This functionality is based on code from the OWASP JBroFuzz project.
  • Dynamic SSL certificates: The support for SSL connections was improved and simplified. User's can now create their own root certificate and distribute this into their HTTP clients.
  • Daemon mode: Starting ZAP with the "-daemon" command line option will cause it to run in the background in 'headless' mode, meaning that no UI is displayed.
  • API: An initial API has been implemented in XML, JSON and HTML.
  • Beanshell integration: The BeanShell is an interactive Java shell that can be used to execute BeanShell scripts. BeanShell integration in OWASP ZAP enables you to write scripts using the ZAP functions and data set.
  • Full internationalisation: All displayed strings are now fully internationalised.
  • Localisation: Out of the box support for the following languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Japanese, Polish, Spanish
