Web App Security Testing With Browsers
If you’re testing in a limited environment, you can use this guide to see how to do security testing right from your browser.
Can you perform web application security testing just using a browser? Think of a scenario where you have to do security testing from a very limited environment where you have no access to run scripts or tools and all you have is a browser. This guide looks at web application security testing from such a locked down scenario. The goal is to cover as many security test cases as possible from a browser. Even though it’s not possible to perform all web application related security test cases from browsers, some good coverage can be guaranteed with the help of the same. A browser alone cannot replace conventional web application security testing methodologies which involve proxies and scanners. Relying completely on security tests that can be done from a browser is never recommended.
