Burp Suite Security Testing Of Web Applications


Burp suite security testing of web applications.

Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of web applications.

Its various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application's attack surface, through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.

The tool is written in Java and developed by PortSwigger Web Security and it comes pre-installed with Kali Linux 2019.4.

When running Kali Linux 2019.4, I got this errormessage, but it works.

Next you will get the Terms & Conditions screen. I didn't click Help improve Burp....

Then click I Accept button.

Then you begin to setup a new project, however you can't setup a disk based project with the free version, only a temporary one. It is two extra sceens, then you will reach the main window.

NOTE: If you do a lot of pentesting, buying a version that support local saving of projects, is well spent money.

The tool has three editions:

  • A community Edition that can be downloaded free of charge
  • A professional Edition
  • An Enterprise Edition that can be purchased after a trial period.

The Community edition has significantly reduced functionality.

It intends to provide a comprehensive solution for web application security checks.

In addition to basic functionality, such as proxy server, scanner and intruder, the tool also contains more advanced options such as a spider, a repeater, a decoder, a comparer, an extender and a sequencer.
