WSSAT – Web Service Security Assessment Tool

WSSAT is an open source web service security scanning tool which provides a dynamic environment to add, update or delete vulnerabilities by just editing its configuration files. This tool accepts WSDL address list as input file and for each service, it performs both static and dynamic tests against the security vulnerabilities. It also makes information disclosure controls. With this tool, all web services could be analyzed at once and the overall security assessment could be seen by the organization.

Objectives of WSSAT are to allow organizations:

  • Perform their web services security analysis at once
  • See overall security assessment with reports
  • Harden their web services
