[edit]

Toolswatch2013.png

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications.

It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing.

ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.

Involvement in the development of ZAP is actively encouraged!

You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute.

Some of the ways you can help:

Feature Requests

Please raise new feature requests as enhancement requests here: http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/issues/list

If there are existing requests you are also interested in then please 'star' them - that way we can see which features people are most interested in and can prioritize them accordingly.

Feedback

Please use the zaproxy-users Google Group for feedback:

  • What do like?
  • What don't you like?
  • What features could be made easier to use?
  • How could the help pages be improved?

Log issues

Have you had a problem using ZAP?

If so and its not already been logged then please report it

Localization

Are you fluent in another language? Can you help translate ZAP into that language?

You can use Crowdin to do that!

Development

If you fancy having a go at adding functionality to ZAP then please get in touch via the zaproxy-develop Google Group.

Again, you do not have to be a security expert to contribute code - working on ZAP could be great way to learn more about web application security!

If you actively contribute to ZAP then you will be invited to join the project.

last reviewed release
ZAP 1.3.0 - 06/06/2011 - (download)
Release description: This release includes the following significant changes:
  • Fuzzing: Strings in a response can now be fuzzed to try to find vulnerabilities. Anti CRSF tokens can be detected and automatically regenerated when fuzzing. This functionality is based on code from the OWASP JBroFuzz project.
  • Dynamic SSL certificates: The support for SSL connections was improved and simplified. User's can now create their own root certificate and distribute this into their HTTP clients.
  • Daemon mode: Starting ZAP with the "-daemon" command line option will cause it to run in the background in 'headless' mode, meaning that no UI is displayed.
  • API: An initial API has been implemented in XML, JSON and HTML.
  • Beanshell integration: The BeanShell is an interactive Java shell that can be used to execute BeanShell scripts. BeanShell integration in OWASP ZAP enables you to write scripts using the ZAP functions and data set.
  • Full internationalisation: All displayed strings are now fully internationalised.
  • Localisation: Out of the box support for the following languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Japanese, Polish, Spanish
