Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is a process of testing an application or software product in an operating state. This kind of testing is helpful for industry-standard compliance and general security protections for evolving projects.
Mostly, IT professionals contrast dynamic application security testing (DAST) with another type of application testing, static application security testing (SAST). DAST may be called “behavioral testing” in that testers often find problems that are not specifically linked to a code module, but happened during use. The task then is to trace them back to their roots in terms of the software design.
Furthermore, dynamic application security testing (DAST) checks the application to find the security flaws, which can’t be detected during the development process and also review an application looking for security weakness to exploit.
The dynamic application security testing (DAST) focuses mainly on the run time features of the application including memory, encryption, performance, permission, configuration and back end code injection.
Besides that, dynamic application security testing (DAST) determined highly exploitable vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting, authentication issues, server mis-configuration, and vulnerabilities which are visible only to the authentication user.
