Web crawlers are a fundamental component of web application scanners and are used to explore the attack surface of web applications. Crawlers work as follows. First, for each page, they extract URLs and UI elements that may lead to new pages. Then, they use a depth-first or breadth-first tree traversal to explore new pages. In this approach, crawlers cannot distinguish between "terminate user account" and "next page" buttons and they will click on both without taking into account the consequences of their actions. The goal of this project is to devise a new family of crawlers that builds on client-side code analysis and expand with the inference of the semantic of UI element by using visual clues. The new crawler will be able to identify in real time types and semantics of the UI elements, and it will use the semantics to choose the right action. This project will include the development of a prototype and evaluation against a selection of real-size web applications.
