Hi Karan, here are some security analysis tools that are used for network security:

  • SQLMap – It detects SQL injection vulnerability in a website database. It can be used on a wide range of databases and supports 6 kinds of SQL injection techniques: time-based blind, boolean-based blind, error-based, UNION query, stacked queries and out-of-band. It can directly connect to the database without using an SQL injection and has great database fingerprinting and enumeration features. Download from here:
  • W3af – It is a web application audit and attack framework that is effective against over 200 vulnerabilities. It has a GUI with expert tools which can be used to send HTTP request and cluster HTTP responses. If a website is protected, it can use authentication modules to scan them. Output can be logged into a console, a file or sent via email. Download from here:
  • Vega – It is a vulnerability scanning and testing tool written in Java. It works with OS X, Linux and Windows platforms. It is GUI enabled and includes an automated scanner and an intercepting proxy.

  • ZED Attack Proxy (ZAP) – It was developed by AWASP and is available for Windows, Unix/Linux and Macintosh platforms. It has high ease of use. It can be used as a scanner or to intercept a proxy to manually test a webpage. Its key features are traditional and AJAX spiders, Fuzzer, Web socket support and a REST based API. Download it from here:
  • Google Nogotofail – It is a network traffic security testing tool. It checks application for known TLS/SSL vulnerabilities and mis-configurations.

  •  BeEF (Browser Exploitation Framework) – It detects application weakness using browser vulnerabilities. It uses client-side attack vectors to verify security of an application. It can issue browser commands like redirection, changing URLs, generating dialogue boxes etc. Download from here:
