Presentation

Despite the growing use of REST API’s to build modern web applications, we continue to discover vulnerabilities affecting these APIs. Testing REST API’s has historically been a manual process with a lack of tooling to help automate API testing. Also release to production cycles are getting shorter as companies move to using devops and continuous delivery practices so the need to automate as much testing as possible before the code hits production is becoming even more important.

Fuzzapi is an API Fuzzer that helps fuzz APIs to find common vulnerabilities, can be integrated into the build pipeline and can also be used to speed up manual testing by helping automate some common test scenarios.

• Installing and configuring the tool

• Running the tool to perform automated testing

• Attacks covered by fuzzapi

• Dependencies and future scope
