The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is one of the world’s most popular free security tools and is actively maintained by hundreds of international volunteers. It can help you automatically find security vulnerabilities in your web applications while you are developing and testing your applications. Its also a great tool for experienced pentesters to use for manual security testing.


Some of ZAP's functionality:

  • Intercepting Proxy
  • Traditional and AJAX spiders
  • Automated scanner
  • Passive scanner
  • Forced browsing
  • Fuzzer
  • Dynamic SSL certificates
  • Smartcard and Client Digital Certificates support
  • Web sockets support
  • Support for a wide range of scripting languages
  • Plug-n-Hack support
  • Authentication and session support
  • Powerful REST based API

Package Note

ZAP 2.12 requires Java 11 or higher and that the JAVA_HOME environment variable is set. You can install a Chocolatey Java Package or Java from Oracle. One suggestion is the Temurin11jre package. Ensure you install it with the FeatureJavaHome parameter set.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
