Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): Guide For All

Definition of Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)
With the increasing threat of cyber-attacks, application security testing has become a crucial part of software development. Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is one of the methods used to test the security of web applications. It involves testing the running application for vulnerabilities, and it is an essential part of any comprehensive security testing strategy.
Benefits of DAST
DAST offers several benefits, including:
• Identifying vulnerabilities in the running application that may not be detected during development or testing.
• Providing a comprehensive view of the application's security posture.
• Supporting compliance with regulatory requirements.
• Integrating with development workflows and CI/CD pipelines.
DAST vs. Static Application Security Testing (SAST)
DAST and SAST are complementary methods for testing the security of web applications. While DAST examines the application from the outside, SAST analyzes the source code for vulnerabilities. SAST can detect vulnerabilities that DAST cannot, such as configuration issues and hard-coded credentials. However, DAST can identify vulnerabilities that are only present when the application is running.
