Intelligent Web Security Testing with Threat Assessment and Client Server Penetration

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 409)


The web today is a rising universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, crawling with videos, photos and interactive content. Web is very interactive nowadays to which we are calling web intelligence. The security standards we are providing with the web are not benchmark enough, it requires more security. It leads us to learn and develop intelligent web security testing with threat assessment and client server penetration testing. It results about security of any website you are testing. In this paper, we have implemented threat assessment and attacks which can be possible on web by using burp suite. We have also demonstrated about procedure of threat and attack testing and client server penetration using burp suite. The last paper has concluded corrective action to protect your web from various implemented as well as tested threats and attacks.
