Simon is a Mozilla Security Automation Engineer and ZAP Project Leader. He is also one of the founders of the OWASP Manchester chapter and the OWASP Data Exchange Format project. Simon is on to discuss OWASP’s Zed Attack Proxy v 2.0.0
From the OWASP site: 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.
