About the Course

By the end of this project, you will learn the fundamentals of how to use OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP). This tool greatly aids security professionals and penetration testers to discover vulnerabilities within web applications. You will learn how to perform a basic web app vulnerability scan, analyze the results, and generate a report of those results. This course includes steps on how to configure the browser proxy to passively scan web requests and responses by simply exploring websites. This course will also include how to use dictionary lists to find files and folders on a web server, and how to spider crawl websites to find all the links and URLs. Finally, the end of the course gives a brief overview of how to intercept, view, modify, and forward web requests that occur between the browser and web application. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

The course I believe was a bit easy and not intermediate plus Rhyme refused connections to the mutilliadae server

The hands on approach did not really work out. Though the technology learned here is very useful.

You will get much more information just reading a documentation about the OWASP ZAP.

The teacher do not explain anything what happens during the course and the purpose of the actions you performed doesn't make any sense. Press this button, press that button, here we have the result and now we can save it as PDF. Wow, sounds good. Very helpful.

Course was very basic on using the tool. This is more of a "getting started" video just scratching the surface a few features. Do not pay for this course, check YouTube or find another course.
