Session: Testing your Software with OWASP ZAP
A large part of designing software, big or small -- enterprise level or a simple create-react-app, is user and data security. Without secure software, even using the latest or newest technologies may not keep or attract users. I will be demonstrating how to use OWASP ZAP against a simple Ruby on Rails application.
What you'll need:
- Website (Need to get permission beforehand)
- Or OWASP Juice Shop
- Or a throwaway application (Ruby on Rails app)
- OWASP ZAP (Zed Attack Proxy) (https://www.zaproxy.org/download/)
I’m Tina Hang Ridley and I’m based out of Santa Barbara, CA. My software engineering career started with Flatiron School and their online program; little did I know how much my life would change (in a good way!). I am currently an Associate Software Engineer at ParentSquare and a Master of Software Engineering student at The Pennsylvania University. I will be graduating in December 2020 but that will not stop me from constantly learning new technologies and concepts to develop useful software to help others.
