Automate DAST/SAST solutions and reporting

Automate DAST/SAST solutions and reporting: A pentester should have experience with automated vulnerability scanning tools such as Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) and Static Application Security Testing (SAST). They should be able to automate the scanning process and generate comprehensive reports that highlight vulnerabilities and suggest remediation measures.

  1. DAST/SAST Integration: One of the first steps in automating DAST/SAST solutions is to integrate them into the development process. This can involve using tools such as OWASP ZAP, Burp Suite, and SonarQube to automatically scan code for vulnerabilities and provide feedback to developers in real-time.
  2. Reporting: After DAST/SAST scans are complete, the pentester will typically create a report detailing the vulnerabilities identified and the methods used to exploit them. Tools such as Dradis, OWASP ZAP, and Nikto can be used to create reports that are easy to read and understand.
  3. Remediation: Once vulnerabilities have been identified, the pentester will typically provide guidance on how to remediate them. This can include providing code samples or suggesting changes to the development process. Tools such as JIRA, GitLab, and GitHub can be used to track and manage the remediation process.
  4. Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD): Automating DAST/SAST solutions can also involve integrating them into the CI/CD process. This can include using tools such as Jenkins, Travis CI, and CircleCI to automate the testing and deployment of code changes. By integrating security testing into the CI/CD process, vulnerabilities can be identified and remediated quickly.
  5. Customization: Finally, automating DAST/SAST solutions can involve customizing the tools to meet the specific needs of the organization. This can include configuring the tools to scan for specific types of vulnerabilities, creating custom reports, or integrating the tools with other security solutions. Tools such as OWASP ZAP, Burp Suite, and SonarQube can be customized to meet the needs of the organization.
