How can I participate in your project?

All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator. See the Road Map and Getting Involved tab for more details.


The first contributors to the project were:


Currently all owasp tools are running on pc . The world is moving towards handheld systems . There isn't any mobile based tool from owasp to do web app pen testing from handheld systems . This app is going to be OWASP first ever mobile app to test web app security. Apart from this this tool will be developed in such a way that it can be customized in an easy way .User supplied vectors can be added easily . It will have encoders,decoders and they can be integrated with different modules easily example (Url encoding with XSS Module). In short this app will have the combined features of modern day scanners with an added mobility & easy customization feature . The application will be opensource . So others can fork and extend and contribute easily .

Getting Involved

Some of the ways you can help are as follows:





The scanner has various module . Each module is independent of other . The project will be extended by adding more modules to it.
