Can i use the community (free) edition in the Web Security Academy? And if so, what kind of restrictions am I looking at?

Hi Joseph, You can certainly use the Community edition in the Web Academy. There are small handful of labs that absolutely require Burp Professional to solve them (due to the fact they are require the use of Burp Collaborator and there is no alternative to using this). There are also some labs that utilise Burp Intruder - in the Community edition Intruder is throttled but you can work around this restriction by splitting up your attacks into smaller subsets.
