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.

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.
