Tool: Burp-Suite 1.5 Free Edition

Length: ~1 hour


After installing Burp-Suite, this video covers how to configure the proxy to intercept, pause, alter, and test requests and responses between a web browser and a web server (web site).


Much of the basic functionality and some more advanced settings are reviewed including the Target, Proxy, Sequencer, Repeater, Intruder, and Decoder tab. While there are many more settings and features than can be covered in one hour (even in only the free edition of Burp-Suite), this video provides the basic introduction needed to get Burp-Suite up and running on either Linux or Windows.


The web site used in the demonstration is the NOWASP Mutillidae web pen-testing environment. It is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/mutillidae/.
