  • Security testing within CI/CD pipeline
  • Regularly run tests to maintain security

What Does OWASP Zap Do?

Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is a free, open-source penetration testing tool being maintained under the umbrella of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). ZAP is designed specifically for testing web applications and is both flexible and extensible. At its core, ZAP is what is known as a “man-in-the-middle proxy.” It stands between the tester’s browser and the web application so that it can intercept and inspect messages sent between browser and web application, modify the contents if needed, and then forward those packets on to the destination. ZAP provides functionality for a range of skill levels – from developers, to testers new to security testing, to security testing specialists.

How does Testkube make OWASP Zap Better?

With Testkube, you can integrate security checks into the broader testing process. This means that security testing can be part of the continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, ensuring that any changes or updates to your Kubernetes application don't introduce new vulnerabilities. Testkube reduces the manual effort required to maintain security. It enables teams to run tests regularly, ensuring constant vigilance over the security of their Kubernetes deployments.
