Top 10 useful Burp Suite extesions

Burp Suite is powerfull tools for pentester and security researcher.But’s if you’re only using the stock verion, as great as it its, you’re mission out! Both the free and paid versions of Burp support extensions that add extra funtionality to the main client and they are very helpful.

1. Bypass WAF

This extension add headers to all Burp requests to bypass some WAF products. The following headers are automatically added to all requests:


Bypass WAF contains the following features:

  1. Users can modify the X-Originating-IP, X-Forwarded-For, X-Remote-IP, X-Remote-Addr headers sent in each request. This is probably the top bypass technique i the tool. It isn’t unusual for a WAF to be configured to trust itself ( or an upstream proxy device, which is what this bypass targets.

  2. The “Content-Type” header can remain unchanged in each request, removed from all requests, or by modified to one of the many other options for each request. Some WAFs will only decode/evaluate requests based on known content types, this feature targets that weakness.

  3. The “Host” header can also be modified. Poorly configured WAFs might be configured to only evaluate requests based on the correct FQDN of the host found in this header, which is what this bypass targets.

  4. The request type option allows the Burp user to only use the remaining bypass techniques on the given request method of “GET” or “POST”, or to apply them on all requests.
    The path injection feature can leave a request unmodified, inject random path info information (/path/to/example.php/randomvalue?restofquery), or inject a random path parameter (/path/to/example.php;randomparam=randomvalue?resetofquery). This can be used to bypass poorly written rules that rely on path information.

  5. The path obfuscation feature modifies the last forward slash in the path to a random value, or by default does nothing. The last slash can be modified to one of many values that in many cases results in a still valid request but can bypass poorly written WAF rules that rely on path information.

  6. The parameter obfuscation feature is language specific. PHP will discard a + at the beginning of each parameter, but a poorly written WAF rule might be written for specific parameter names, thus ignoring parameters with a + at the beginning. Similarly, ASP discards a % at the beginning of each parameter.

  7. The “Set Configuration” button activates all the settings that you have chosen.

2.Json Beaufifier

This extension adds a new tab to Burp’s HTTP message viewer to beautify JSON content.


AuthMatrix is an extension to Burp Suite that provides a simple way to test authorization in web applications and web services. With AuthMatrix, testers focus on thoroughly defining tables of users, roles, and requests for their specific target application upfront. These tables are displayed through the UI in a similar format to that of an access control matrix commonly built in various threat modeling methodologies.

4. Random IP Address Header

is extension automatically generates IPV6 and IPV4 fake source address headers to evade WAF filtering.
The extension can help when attacking sites with Imperva WAF or to evade WAF rules behind Akamai CDN.

5. Java-Deserialization-Scanner

Java-Deserialization-Scanner is a BurpSuite plug-in, used to automate the discovery of Java deserialization vulnerability.
