DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing)
Dynamic application security testing (DAST) technologies are designed to detect conditions indicative of a security vulnerability in an application in its running state. DAST is done from the outside looking in. While the application is in running state, the process tries to penetrate the application in a variety of ways to identify potential vulnerabilities, including those outside the code and in third-party interfaces. Since source code, byte code and binaries are not required with DAST, it is easier to use and less expensive than SAST tools.
