The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is "an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications." The technology is comparable to IBM AppScan and HP WebInspect - but free, open source and maintained by OWASP volunteers. The project has seen a tremendous amount of development lately.
