----------------
Do you dread when the web application you are working on has to go to security for a scan, only to get a massive report from Web Inspect or App Scan? Or worse, the web application is never scanned for vulnerabilities and just put into production? In this session, David takes you through OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP), an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications.
