Any application exposed to the internet will be attacked, and the earlier in the development cycle you find vulnerabilities, the better.
The central Ohio OWASP chapter is going to be squashing some ZAP bugs :)
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 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.
