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 2.3.1 is now available! Download it here:

Upcoming Talks/Training:


2014 September 30: JavaOne, San Fransisco, CA: Simon Bennetts: Security Testing for Developers Using OWASP ZAP

Any application exposed to the internet will be attacked, and the earlier in the development cycle you find vulnerabilities, the better.

This session introduces the OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP), a free, open source, Java-based integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications.

Although ZAP is widely used by security professionals, it is also ideal for anyone new to web application security and includes features specifically aimed at developers.

The session shows how ZAP can be used to find vulnerabilities, both manually and as part of an automated build. It also provides an overview of some of the more advanced features and explains how they can be used for more-complex security testing.


2014 September 30: cPanel Conference, Houston, TX: John "JD" Lightsey: Website Vulnerability Scanning with OWASP Zap

This session will provide an introduction to the OWASP Zap integrated penetration testing tool. You'll see how this tool can be used to scan a web application for common security issues.


2014 October 16-17: Black Hat Arsenal, Amsterdam: Zakaria Rachid: OWASP ZAP

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is currently the most active open source web application security tool and competes effectively with commercial tools.

While it is an ideal tool for people new to appsec, it also has many features specifically intended for advanced penetration testing.

Zack will give a quick introduction to ZAP and then dive into the more advanced features, presenting some useful scripts as well as giving an overview of where its heading.
