What is Cake Fuzzer?

Cake Fuzzer is a cutting-edge project designed to automate the continuous discovery of vulnerabilities in web applications developed using specific frameworks. Our revolutionary approach minimizes false positives, ensuring reliable results. Currently, our focus is on supporting the Cake PHP framework, but soon, it will also be available to other web application frameworks.

Traditional methods for vulnerability discovery in web applications include:

  1. Static Application Security Testing (SAST): This method scans the source code for vulnerabilities without executing the application.
  2. Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST): This method involves attacking the running application to identify vulnerabilities based on responses.

However, both approaches have their drawbacks. SAST often produces a high number of false positives, while DAST may miss vulnerabilities due to limited information. Moreover, DAST requires application knowledge and security expertise to configure properly.

Cake Fuzzer aims to overcome these limitations by combining the strengths of both methods. Our unique approach, called Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST), achieves the following objectives:

  1. Automated vulnerability discovery for CakePHP-based applications.
  2. Elimination of application-specific knowledge or pre-configuration requirements.
  3. Minimal or zero false positives in the results.
  4. User-friendly scanner that requires only basic security knowledge.

It’s important to note that Cake Fuzzer may not detect certain types of vulnerability classes, such as business logic vulnerabilities and access control issues. However, by leveraging the power of IAST, our tool maximises its effectiveness.

How does Cake Fuzzer work? It employs a predefined set of attacks that are randomly modified before execution. Leveraging its deep understanding of the Cake PHP framework, Cake Fuzzer launches attacks on all potential application entry points.

During the attack, Cake Fuzzer diligently monitors various aspects, including:

  • Network connections
  • File system interactions
  • Application responses
  • Error logs

By analyzing these sources of information, Cake Fuzzer detects vulnerabilities more effectively and with higher confidence.

Choose Cake Fuzzer for comprehensive and accurate vulnerability discovery without the hassle of false positives. Empower your web applications with robust security, effortlessly.
