What kind of security testing are you planning to learn and upto what depth?

SQL Injection, XSS ...?

Perhaps a more fundamental question might be: Are you engaged in security testing now? Are you looking to expand your personal toolset or are you looking for the next in-demand testing specialty?

If you are engaged in security testing, then I think Juleo's questions come into play.

Hi,

Thanks for you reply.

Actually new to Security testing. I have started reading articles on manual security testing like SQL injection, Xss, etc....

I have been told by my client that I have to compare different Open Source Security testing tools. Problem is I would need some base before comparison.

It would be great if anyone can guide me for same.

Thanks in advance,
Poonam

You are new to Security Testing, your client knows this, and yet is asking you to compare tools? That's unfortunate.

I suppose you aren't in a position to say "I don't know anything about such tools but I can send you a lot of links to sites that you could read."?

Anyway, there are plenty of tools at:
http://www.opensourcetesting.org/security.php

And a quick search for "compare different Open Source Security testing tools" turns up lots of sites that your client (or you) may want to read.

Hi,

Good Morning. I have gone through tools given in http://www.opensourcetesting.org/security.php url plus other tools like Skipfish, Watcher, etc...

I would like to know if anyone can help me by telling the basic things need to be taken care while comparing any tools?

It will be great if I can get any checklist to refer the points to compare while selecting tool

Thanks,
Poonam
