Current Version: 3.2.13 (August 8, 2006)

Paros is an essential tool for all web application developers and web site security auditors. It is a Java-based HTTP/HTTPS proxy for assessing web application vulnerability, supporting editing/viewing HTTP messages on-the-fly. Features include spiders, client certificate, proxy-chaining, intelligent scanning for XSS and SQL injections, and more.

Version 3.2.13 adds/changes the following:

  • New: skipping designated URL in spider. Use options to set the spider.
  • New: auto update menu and periodic check for update (Windows and Linux platform only).
  • Fix: the use of new external library caused slower performance of proxy. Restored to older library.

See the installation instructions for more information.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
