Aletheia is a browser-like application for sending raw HTTP requests. It is designed for debugging and finding security issues in Web applications. It is possible to apply filters on every request and response which can modify the content, for making Basic Authentication or OAuth requests, for example. Because it is possible to modify every bit of the request, it is easy to exploit Web applications. That means you can set, for example, custom Cookies or User-Agents, or send file uploads to the server. You can even send corrupted HTTP requests to see how the server responds. This application also helps you understand how the HTTP protocol works.


This release implements the Apache HTTP core library to manage HTTP requests, removes the charset response filter because it's handled by the library, adds a follow location response filter, and fixes some bugs.
