There has been some buzz around Caido recently – a contender to the Burp crown. Brackish Security testers recently sat down and tried Caido out on some real pentests. Our findings follow.
Keep in mind that Caido is still fairly new, while Burp has been in development and use for a very long time. Additionally, each tester spent less than two hours with Caido, which may have limited their experiences.
Despite Caido being new and lacking features that make Burp stand out, it does have a chance of taking over and becoming the King of OffSec Proxies. Caido does have a very long way to go to reach feature parity with Burp, but the price difference does compensate somewhat. Furthermore, Burp has the whole Portswigger Web Security Academy training content behind – and that’s a lot of good stuff for the new folks.
Keep and eye on Caido, and maybe try it out to see what all the fuss is about. It’s always good to keep more tools in your chest! And bookmark this post, because we will update it as we use Caido some more.
