Category:OWASP Tools Project
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 in hand, it may sometimes be difficult to make a decision about 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 effectiveness.
- Define rating criteria for tools
- Define test procedure for tools
- Identification of tools
- Categorization the tools
- Test the tools against test applications to see how effectively the tool meets the predefined criteria
- Provide rating to the tools based on their effectiveness
