Burp suite is an integrated platform for attacking web applications. It contains all of the burp tools (proxy, spider, intruder and repeater) with numerous interfaces between them designed to facilitate and speed up the process of attacking a web application. All plugins share the same robust framework for handling HTTP requests, authentication, downstream proxies, logging, alerting and extensibility.
Burp suite allows an attacker to combine manual and automated techniques to enumerate, analyse, attack and exploit web applications. The various burp tools work together effectively to share information and allow findings identified within one tool to form the basis of an attack using another.
Key features unique to burp suite include: Ability to “passively” spider an application in a non-intrusive manner, with all requests originating from the user´s browser; Extensibility via the IBurpExtender interface, which allows third-party code to extend the functionality of burp suite. Data processed by one plugin can be used in arbitrary ways to affect the behaviour and results of other plugins; Runs in both Linux and Windows.
