ZAP Project leader

Crash Override


Simon Bennetts is the Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) Founder and Project Leader, and works full time on ZAP thanks to the support of the Crash Override Open Source Fellowship. 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.


ZAP Authentication: What, Why and How?


"ZAP is probably the worlds most popular web vulnerability scanner, but many people struggle to configure it to authenticate to their apps effectively. In this talk Simon will explain what we mean by ZAP authentication, why its so important to set it up correctly and how to do just that. He will cover both modern and more traditional apps as well as APIs."
