CHAPTER 3: THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Thus far, we have seen how to create threat profiles, create test plans and construct test cases. The actual testing is a combination of manual testing techniques and automated scanners. In this chapter, we’ll look at the tools used for testing applications. As different types of applications require different types of tools to test, we look at tools for several popular categories of applications:

• web applications

• thick clients

• terminal services

• Java applets

• web services
