The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501c3 not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks.

NEW OWASP PROJECTS
OWASP Droid Fusion - Droid Fusion is a platform for android mobile for doing malware analysis, development, application pen-testing, and forensics. You can use it in any mobile security research, and if you have Droid Fusion, you don't need to worry about finding tools. There are more than 60 tools and scripts and it is free.
OWASP iSABEL Proxy Server - The idea of the OWASP iSABEL Proxy Server Project is to gain a deeper knowledge about securing web applications from different threats and attacks coming from external sources. This can be achieved by developing intermediary software that runs between the client and the server. This intermediary software will be based on a proxy server that will be implemented on layer 7 (Application) of the OSE model (Open Systems Interconnection), and its function is to accept network traffic from different client's trying to access resources from the web server. Once the client successfully established a connection, the proxy will inspect all incoming network packets coming from the clients for malicious parameter, and files such as viruses, worms, trojans.
