How to setup a DAST scan


Strobes come with built-in open-source and commercial scan connectors with which you run different types of SAST, DAST, Network, and Cloud scans. In this article, we are gonna look at how we can set up a DAST scan using OWASP ZAP.


ZAP REST API Scanner is a DAST tool to evaluate the security of your REST API using the postman collection.


Usage Flow Instructions

  • Login into Strobes
  • Visit your organization

  • Export your Postman collection file(.json) of V2.1 and upload it using the File Manager connector.
  • Close file manager window
  • Click on ZAP Rest API Scanner
