Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) is a method of testing the security of an application while it is running and in use.
DAST uses automated tools to actively identify an application's security weaknesses while it is running and accessible through a web browser. The purpose of DAST is to find vulnerabilities that can be used by malicious people to gain access to sensitive information or to misuse the application.
DAST involves testing various security aspects of the application such as input validation, authentication and authorization, session management, and security configuration. By performing these tests, an organization can improve the security of their application and thus reduce the likelihood of security incidents.
