Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of web applications. Its various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application's attack surface, through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.

Installation

Install burpsuiteAUR from AUR.

This will install Burp Suite Community (free edition).

Configuration

Burp Proxy will work out of the box with HTTP connections. For HTTPS, PortSwigger's certificate must be installed first.

Start up Burp:

$ burpsuite

Open the Proxy -> Options. In the Proxy Listeners section add a new interface. Set Interface to 127.0.0.1:8080 and make sure the Running checkbox is enabled.

Navigate to http://127.0.0.1:8080/ in Firefox, click the CA Certificate link at top right and save the certificate file somewhere.
