The Presentation

The concept of dynamic application scanning testing (DAST) exporting data that is then imported into a web application firewall (WAF) for targeted remediation is not new. While this concept is certainly attractive to show risk reduction and reducing the time-to-fix metric, it is important to realize that you are not constrained to a "one way" data flow. WAFs have access to a tremendous amount of information that it can share with DAST to aid in application coverage and initiating on-demand assessments of new or change resources. This presentation will highlight how DASTs and WAFs can achieve a synergistic effect by dynamically sharing data. During the presentation, a working integration between the Arachni web application security scanner framework and the ModSecurity web application firewall will be presented.
