IAST stands for Interactive Application Security Testing. It is a technique used to test and improve the security of web applications. The technique analyzes the runtime behavior of a web application to detect potential security vulnerabilities, such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting. IAST works by injecting an agent into the runtime environment of the web application, which makes it possible to monitor and analyze the behavior of the application while it is running. The results of the analysis are used to improve the security of the application and to comply with certain security standards.
