The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is one of the world’s most popular free security tools
and is actively maintained by dedicated international team of volunteers.
It can help you automatically find security vulnerabilities in your web applications

For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt install snapd
