Ola from Porto Alegre, Brazil. I’m here speaking at FISL 12 on open source and security. We’re also launching our beta.
So we’re pleased to officially announce the public release of the Vega platform 1.0. Vega is a GUI-based, open source platform for testing the security of web applications. It runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. The core of Vega functionality is in its automated scanner and intercepting proxy.
Vega also includes an intercepting proxy. The proxy is situated between a browser and the target application, intercepting all requests and responses between them. Users can view the interaction of the client with the website, intercepting and modifying requests and responses to probe and verify possible vulnerabilities. The proxy is also capable of intercepting HTTPS communications with dynamically generated man-in-the-middle certificates.
Finally, join us on Freenode, channel #subgraph.
