Dynamic Application Security Test (DAST)

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is a process of testing an application or software product in an operating state. DAST works by sending mock attacks to web applications and services via HTTP/HTTPS, just like a cybercriminal would. 

DAST requires little knowledge of an application’s inner workings, and findings inherently provide proof of exploitation that demonstrates whether an application is indeed vulnerable and how that vulnerability can be exploited. 

The results are triaged by the security team.
