NEW OWASP Projects
OWASP Vulnerable Web Applications Directory Project
The OWASP Vulnerable Web Applications Directory (VWAD) Project is a comprehensive and well maintained registry of all known vulnerable web applications currently available. These vulnerable web applications can be used by web developers, security auditors, and penetration testers to put in practice their knowledge and skills during training sessions (and especially afterwards), as well as to test at any time the multiple hacking tools and offensive techniques available, in preparation for their next real-world engagement.For more information, please contact the project leaders, Simon Bennetts and Raul Siles.
New Project Releases
OWASP Mantra-OS, released their "Cannon" beta. The virtual-core now creates a complete sandbox. It contains lxc, libvirt, kvm, libxen, libmacho, and vzctl. Additionally, the leaders are happy to report that further development made with libdispatch, liblightning, and libjit, makes it extreamly fast.
For more information, please contact the project leader, Gregory Disney.
Message from Project Leader, Jim Manico: Authentication Cheating
I'm in the process of doing an edit-pass of the OWASP Cheat Sheet series. I'd like to start with authentication. A lot has changed since we first authored the Cheat Sheets. Would anyone like to take a stab at refreshing and updating this page? If you are interested in helping out, please contact Jim Manico.
New Support email is now available. To reach a staff member, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
