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. By the end of the book, you will be up and running with deploying Burp for securing web applications.

Testing for the circumvention of work flows

Shopping cart to payment gateway interactions must be tested by web app penetration testers to ensure the workflow cannot be performed out of sequence. A payment should never be made unless a verification of the cart contents is checked on the server-side first. In the event this check is missing, an attacker can change the price, quantity, or both, prior to the actual purchase.

Getting ready

Using the OWASP WebGoat application and Burp, we will exploit a business logic design flaw in which there is no server-side validation prior to a purchase.
