Overview of this book

Burp Suite is a Java-based platform for testing the security of your web applications, and has been adopted widely by professional enterprise testers. The Burp Suite Cookbook contains recipes to tackle challenges in determining and exploring vulnerabilities in web applications. You will learn how to uncover security flaws with various test cases for complex environments. After you have configured Burp for your environment, you will use Burp tools such as Spider, Scanner, Intruder, Repeater, and Decoder, among others, to resolve specific problems faced by pentesters. You will also explore working with various modes of Burp and then perform operations on the web. Toward the end, you will cover recipes that target specific test scenarios and resolve them using best practices.

Adding great pentester plugins

As web-application testers, you will find handy tools to add to your repertoire to make your assessments more efficient. The Burp community offers many wonderful extensions. In this recipe, we will add a couple of them and explain how they can make your assessments better. Retire.js and Software Vulnerability Scanner are the two plugins, these two plugins are used with the passive scanner.

Note: Both of these plugins require the Burp Professional version.

Getting ready

Using the OWASP Mutilliae II application, we will add two handy extensions that will help us find more vulnerabilities in our target.
