The Evil Tester's guide to HTTP proxies and Browser Developer Tools

A session at London Tester Gathering Workshops 2013

Friday 18th October, 2013

1:00pm to 4:00pm (GMT)

I test a lot of web applications. I use proxy servers to interrogate and manipulate web traffic, and the built in browser developer tools.

We will cover and go beyond the obvious interrogation and manipulation of traffic and also look at how to use auto-responders, custom rules and traffic generators. The different capabilities of the tools and how to use them in combination.

We will also look at the new features in modern browsers that help you achieve some of the proxy benefits out of the box, for those moments when you have to test unarmed.

As well as the tools I want to cover the testing thought processes and models that help you apply the tools in your work.

Turn up with some modern browsers installed (Chrome, Firefox, Opera), a couple of proxy servers (BurpSuite, Fiddler, Zed Attack Proxy), possibly some plugins (Firebug), to maximize your time in the workshop.
