Summary : "Vega is an open source web security testing platform written in Java and developed by Montreal-based Subgraph. Vega runs on Linux, OS X, and Windows, and includes a vulnerability scanner and intercepting proxy. Vega was released in 2011, making it a relative newcomer in the space. I'll be demonstrating how it can be used to find vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection in a wide variety of applications. I'll also talk about extending Vega with the built-in Javascript interpreter. Finally, some new features will be revealed as Vega heads to its 1.0 release."
