Session

ZAPping Security Vulnerabilities in Your QA Process | Student-Alumni Room

When your application has a security vulnerability, will you or an attacker find it first? With regression testing, new features, bug fixes, and more, finding time for security testing can be challenging. Let the free and open source OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) help by testing for security flaws during many of the tests you already run. This session walks through using ZAP in three ways: scanning an application as you use it, writing reusable tests, and automating security scans as part of your QA process. You will learn how to attack a live application, how to target specific areas of your application for heavier scrutiny, test for specific vulnerabilities, and incorporate ZAP into your development pipeline to automate the whole process including regression testing and report generation, so that vulnerabilities are discovered the moment they are introduced.
