Web Application Scanners: Definitions and Functions
Elizabeth N. Fong, Vadim Okun
There are many commercial software security assurance tools that claim to detect and prevent vulnerabilities in application software. However, a closer look at the tools often leaves one wondering which tools find what flaws?

The types of functions that are generally found in a web application scanner are described.
