We talked about a few security testing tools in the book.
Right after we wrapped up that chapter, Google released their own security testing tool - Skipfish. Well, there are many tools out there, but why one more?
It has its own advantages - the one that I like is "high performance":
"2000+ requests per second on LAN / MAN networks, and 7000+ requests against local instances have been observed, with a very modest CPU, network, and memory footprint."
Such high performance tools can help accelerate automated security testing activities during the test phase of the SDLC.
Go give it a try...
