What is Burpsuite
Burp Suite, a framework of web application pentesting tools, is widely regarded as the de facto tool to use when performing web app testing. BurpSuite acts as a proxy between your browser and sending it through the internet – It allows the BurpSuite Application to read and send on HTTPS data.
The suite can run under windows and linux.
After install we need to do some configurations.
Start Burpsuite. Accept al defaults
let’s add an extension to our web browser to allow up to easily route or traffic through it. We use FoxyProxy Standard https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxyproxy-standard/
Next, click on FoxyProxy among your extensions.
After that, click on ‘Options’.
After that, click ‘Add’ in the top left.
Enter in the following settings and then click ‘Save’
Finally, click on the FoxyProxy extension icon again and select ‘Burp’.
