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.

Rating: Projects/OWASP Zed Attack Proxy Project/GPC/Assessment/ZAP 2.3.1
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
