Authors : Mauricio Adami Mariani, Samuel Brando Oldra, Precious Adewopo


This paper intends to give an introduction how to test vulnerabilities. This is based on the OWASP testing guide or an audit approach and concepts used by penetration testers testing in a web environment. Our main disciplines automating a simple guide testing algorithms were developed. Each corresponds to two methods of algorithms of this guide, the algorithms were run on a non-automated process. So, with this work we want to give facilities present or also give more tools for complex tests. Tests were performed in a prepared with errors, such as broken OWASP Web Application Project environment.
