OWASP iGoat 2.1 Released

There is a new OWASP iGoat release available immediately for download. Details below:

Thanks to Google deprecating (read: killing off) the Downloads feature on Google Code, we've had to move the primary Downloads page over to Google Drive. It works fine, but is a little clunky, IMHO. Of course, you can always just download a ZIP of the current source tree. See the Downloads page ( for instructions.

As always, the OWASP iGoat app is only distributed in source code as a self-contained Xcode project. To run it, you'll need Xcode (free from Apple). You can run it for free on the iPhone Simulator included with Xcode, or install it on your iOS device, but the latter requires you to register and pay (USD$99/year) to be an Apple iOS Developer.


OWASP ZAP 2.3.0 is now available :

There are a large number of changes in this release, so this post will just give a high level overview of some of the most significant changes: ZAP ‘lite’ version For this release we are providing a ‘lite’ version of ZAP in addition to the ‘full’ version. This contains exactly the same core code, but it just includes fewer default add-ons. Of course, you can download all of the ‘missing’ add-ons from the ZAP marketplace to ‘upgrade’ the lite version to a full one.

The ‘lite’ version is aimed at people new to security who need less initial functionality which will hopefully be easier to get started with. It will also be suitable for people looking for a smaller download or those wishing to customize exactly which add-ons they install. For more information, read the full story...
