About this book
Security is an ever-changing, fast-paced discipline. Thankfully, there are free tools that you can use to protect your systems. OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is the most popular one: it allows you to test for vulnerabilities and exploits with the same functionality as a licensed tool! But how does it work?
Zed Attack Proxy Cookbook contains a vast array of practical recipes to help you set up, configure, and use ZAP to protect your vital systems from adversaries of every description. If you're interested in cybersecurity or already working as a cybersecurity professional, this book will give you mastery of this popular security tool.
You’ll start with an overview of ZAP and understand how to set up a basic lab environment for the hands-on activities covered in the rest of the book. As you progress, you'll go through a myriad of step-by-step recipes detailing various types of exploits and vulnerabilities in web applications, as well as advanced techniques such as Java deserialization.
By the end of this Zap book, you’ll be able to install and deploy ZAP, conduct basic to advanced web application penetration attacks, use the tool for mobile and API testing, install and deploy a BOAST server that works with ZAP, and build ZAP into a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline, among many other things.
