Hacking your website with Vega

Vega is a free and open-source vulnerability scanner developed by Montreal-based startup Subgraph.

During this presentation, we first explain the common classes of vulnerability and survey the landscape of existing scanner technologies.

We will then present Vega and explain how it can be used to perform security assessments of web applications.

We will also be demonstrating the flexibility offered by Vega through the development of custom modules that run in its embedded Javascript scripting engine, which we hope web developers will love.
