But, if you don’t know about Burp Suite then don’t worry, let me clear the subject for you.

What is Burp Suite?

Now if we talk about its efficiency, then let me tell you guys that it’s not only a tool to detect vulnerable spaces, it’s a complete security system that comes with several integrated security tools, which work together to accomplish the targeted goals.

  • Proxy
  • Target
  • Scanner
  • Spider
  • Intruder
  • Repeater
  • Collaborator client

  • Enabling HTTP/2 for extensions
  • Task pausing improvements
  • An embedded browser upgrade
  • Several bug fixes

Compatibility

The Burp Suite supports all the major platforms like:-

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OS

Apart from this, Burp Suite comes pre-inbuilt in Kali Linux, but, in case of installation in other OS you have to take special care while installing the proxy, since it completely depends on the user can use it correctly or not.

As the proxy plays the key role since it allows to probe and alter the traffic acting as an intermediary between the browser and the target application.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
