HOWTO : OWASP Zaproxy on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications.

It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing.

ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre-lib openjdk-7-jre-headless openjdk-7-jre icedtea-7-jre-jamvm icedtea-7-jre-cacao icedtea-7-plugin
