Introducing Katana: Revolutionising Web Application Penetration Testing

Katana is a cutting-edge solution meticulously designed to streamline and enhance web application penetration testing. It marries the efficiency of automation with the precision of manual tasks, reducing the workload for testers. Throughout the penetration testing process, Katana seamlessly integrates various tools, including commercial, open source, and custom-developed applications, to deliver comprehensive reports that consolidate findings effectively.


Target Selection

Katana effortlessly identifies services and functionality on web servers when provided with URLs, whether with or without credentials.

 Scanning and Discovery

Leveraging established tools, Katana pinpoints specific software plugins, versions, and features within the web infrastructure.

Vulnerability Scanning

Katana harnesses a wide range of public sources, such as CVE and vendor reports, along with the Vulners Database to compile a repository of software information. It then meticulously scans for potential vulnerabilities in the web server, in addition to assessing against the OWASP Top 10 security concerns.

    • A01-2021 – Injection attacks
    • A02-2021 – Cryptographic failures
    • A03-2021 – Injection
    • A04-2021 – Insecure Design
    • A05-2021 – Security Misconfiguration
    • A06-2021 – Vulnerable and outdated components
    • A07-2021 – Identification and Authentication failure
    • A08-2021 – Software and Data Integrity failures
    • A09-2021 – Security Logging and Monitoring Failures
    • A10-2021 – Server-Side Request Forgery


When vulnerabilities are identified, Katana conducts non-destructive Proof-of-Concept tests to demonstrate the potential for exploitation.



Notably, Katana does not assess persistence or lateral movement within the environment, eliminating the need for post-exploitation cleanup.

 Reporting and Analysis

Katana’s automated reports provide detailed insights, including descriptions, impact assessments, and remediation activities. Findings are supported by concrete evidence, making them easily comprehensible to technical audiences and stakeholders. The reports offer step-by-step guidance for remediation, facilitating collaboration with development teams.


Katana is engineered to maximize true positives while minimizing false positives. Vulnerability descriptions are continuously updated to enhance clarity and minimize reliance on technical jargon.

In summary, Katana is a game-changing tool for web application penetration testing. It combines automation and manual expertise to deliver precise results, facilitates collaboration with technical teams, and produces reports that are accessible to all stakeholders. Katana sets a new standard for efficiency and effectiveness in web application security testing.
