web app security realm books

Hi,

I need to test the web applications we develop. So I started using BurpSuite, it seems fine to me. But I don´t know what tests to make and neither how to do them.

I´m searching for this information on the net, or in some books.

What books do you recommend in the following site http://portswigger.net/books/ ?

Thanks,
André

Why don't you have a look at the OWASP project and their Testing Guide?

Re: web app security realm books

Since you specifically mention Burp and portswigger, I think that I would go with Web Application Hackers Handbook.  Dafydd Stuttard (a.k.a. portswigger) is one of the coauthors of the book.  Extremely well written.

Another vote for Web Application Hackers Handbook.
