Application Security

Application security is the way toward making applications safer by discovering, fixing, and improving the security of applications. A lot of this occurs during the advancement stage, however it incorporates devices and techniques to secure applications once they are sent. This is getting more significant as programmers progressively target applications with their attacks.

Application security is getting a ton of consideration. Several devices are accessible to make sure about different components of your applications portfolio, from securing code changes to surveying incidental coding dangers, assessing encryption choices and evaluating consents and access rights. There are particular devices for portable applications, for network-based applications, and for firewalls planned particularly for web applications.

BeEF is short for The Browser Exploitation Framework. It is a penetration testing tool that focuses on the web browser.

Unlike other security frameworks, BeEF looks past the hardened network perimeter and client system, and examines exploitability within the context of the one open door. Check for more information here


The Open Web Application Security Project® (OWASP) is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software.

Through community-led open source software projects, hundreds of local chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and leading educational and training conferences, the OWASP Foundation is the source for developers and technologists to secure the web. Check for more information here

Zed Attack Proxy

The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (otherwise known as ZAP) is a free security tool which you can use to find security vulnerabilities in web applications.

My name is Simon Bennetts, and I am the ZAP Project Leader; there is also an international group of volunteers who develop and support it. Check for more information here


Ettercap is a comprehensive suite for man in the middle attacks. It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks.

It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols and includes many features for network and host analysis. Check for more information here


W3af is a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework. The project’s goal is to create a framework to help you secure your web applications by finding and exploiting all web application vulnerabilities.

Our framework is proudly developed using Python to be easy to use and extend, and licensed under GPLv2.0. Check for more information here


Sqlmap is an open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers.

It comes with a powerful detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester and a broad range of switches lasting from database fingerprinting, over data fetching from the database, to accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.

Social Engineer Toolkit

The Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) was created and written by Dave Kennedy, the founder of TrustedSec. It is an open-source Python-driven tool aimed at penetration testing around Social-Engineering.

It has been presented at large-scale conferences including Blackhat, DerbyCon, Defcon, and ShmooCon. With over two million downloads, it is the standard for social-engineering penetration tests and supported heavily within the security community. Check for more information here

IBM Security AppScan

IBM® Security AppScan® Standard automates application security testing by scanning applications, identifying vulnerabilities, and generating reports with intelligent fix recommendations to ease remediation. It provides static and dynamic application security testing throughout development. Check for more information here

THC Hydra

When you need to brute force crack a remote authentication service, Hydra is often the tool of choice. It can perform rapid dictionary attacks against more than 50 protocols, including telnet, ftp, http, https, smb, several databases, and much more. Like THC Amap this release is from the fine folks at THC. Check for more information here


Nikto is an Open Source (GPL) web server scanner which performs comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 6700 potentially dangerous files/programs, checks for outdated versions of over 1250 servers, and version specific problems on over 270 servers. Check for more information here
