Simon Bennetts is the OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) Project Leader and works for Mozilla as part of the Cloud Services Security Team. He has talked about and demonstrated ZAP at conferences all over the world, including Blackhat, JavaOne, FOSDEM and OWASP AppSec EU, USA & AsiaPac.
Prior to making the move into security he was a developer for 25 years and strongly believes that you cannot build secure web applications without knowing how to attack them.
Session: The OWASP ZAP HUD
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.
ZAP 2.8.0, released earlier this year, introducing a new Heads Up Display (HUD) interface which overlays data and controls for ZAP over the web based application being tested. In this session, Simon (the OWASP ZAP project lead) will demonstrate how you can use the unique and integrated design of the HUD to help you build secure software.
