Google Releases Web Security Assessment Tool

Google has just released an open-source web security assessment tool called ratproxy.

"Ratproxy is a semi-automated, largely passive web application security audit tool."

According to the documentation of the tool, ratproxy offers several important advantages over more traditional methods and tools like WebScarab, Paros, Burp, ProxMon and Pantera.

  • No risk of disruptions.

  • Low effort, high yield.

  • Preserved control flow of human interaction.

  • WYSIWYG data on script behavior.

  • Easy process integration.

Best way to decide, might be biving it a try!
