;Survey
+
:In Jan 2006, Dr. Holger Peine finished a survey of application security tools that can be found at: http://www.iese.fraunhofer.de/download/Security-Checker-Tools-for-Web-Applications.pdf. It covers various open source and commercial tools in many of the areas discussed in this project.

+
;SAMATE
+
:The [http://samate.nist.gov/index.php/Main_Page NIST SAMATE - Software Assurance Metrics And Tool Evaluation project] has an ambitious goal of creating a large set of application security test data and then assessing the capabilities of a wide variety of application security tools.

+
;Presentation
+
:At the 3rd AppSec OWASP Conference, Arian Evans did a presentation on [http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Image:AppSec2005DC-Arian_Evans_Tools-Taxonomy.ppt Software Security Quality: Testing Taxonomy &amp; Testing Tools Classification] that lists LOTS of the tools in the application security space from different categories, and some comparitive information on Web Application Security Scanning products.

Main

Vision

Our vision is to provide access to application security tools, resources and eductional material to everyone interested to learn and work in application security. We aim to achieve this by creating a repository of all the available resoruces at one place.

Overview

New open source and commercial web application security tools are released almost every day. These tools are used either to detect vulnerabilities within web applications or to protect web applications from exploitation of potential vulnerabilties that may be present in these applications. With so many tools at hand, it may sometimes be difficult to make a decision about the selection of a tool that best meets your requirements.

The OWASP Tools Project has been created to provide unbiased, practical information and guidance about application security tools that are used to detect vulnerabilities or to protect against vulnerabilities. The goal of this project is to identify any available tools, categorise them and rate them according to a predefind criteria to assess their efficiency and performance.


Project Roadmap

  • Defining categories for tools
  • Identification of tools within these categories
  • Define rating criteria and the test procedure for identified tools
  • Testing the tools against test applications to see how effectively the tool meets the rating criteria
  • Provide rating to the tools based on their efficiency and performance


Feedback and Participation

We hope you find the OWASP Tools Project useful. Please contribute back to the project by sending your comments, questions, and suggestions to the mailing list here.
