Getting started in security with the OWASP ZAP HUD

Presented by: Simon Bennetts
Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is one of the world’s most popular and best maintained free and open source security tools. It has a powerful desktop UI, a highly functional API, and is used by everyone from people new to security, including developers and QA, right up to professional pentesters. The new ZAP Heads Up Display (HUD) interface overlays data and controls for ZAP over the web based application being tested. This allows users to benefit from ZAP data and functionality without leaving their browser. This makes it much easier for newcomers to get involved in security testing as well as allowing experienced pentesters to focus more on application level vulnerabilities instead of focusing on their security tool. In this talk Simon will explain how you can get started in security using the ZAP HUD. He will demonstrate its current capabilities, explain where it’s heading and will also give an overview of how you can use ZAP for automating security testing.
