Instructions are in RED text and should be removed from your document by deleting the text with the span tags. This document is intended to serve as an example of what is required of an OWASP project wiki page. The text in red serves as instructions, while the text in black serves as an example. Text in black is expected to be replaced entirely with information specific to your OWASP project.

OWASP Tool Project Template

This section should include an overview of what the project is, why the project was started, and what security issue is being addressed by the project deliverable. Some readers may be discouraged from looking further at the project if they do not understand the significance of the security concern that is being addressed, so provide enough context so the average reader will continue on with reading the description. You shouldn't assume the reader will understand the objective by providing security terminology, e.g. this project builds cryptographic algorithms, but should also endeavor to explain what they are used for.

The OWASP Tool Template Project is a template designed to help Project Leaders create suitable project pages for OWASP Projects. By following the instructional text in red (and then deleting it) it should be easier to understand what information OWASP and the project users are looking for. And it's easy to get started by simply creating a new project from the appropriate project template.

Description

During web application penetration testing, it is important to enumerate your application's attack surface. While Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) tools (such as Burp Suite and ZAP) are good at spidering to identify application attack surfaces, they will often fail to identify unlinked endpoints and optional parameters. These endpoints and parameters not found often go untested, which can leave your application open to an attacker.

What is the Attack Surface Detector?

This tool is the Attack Surface Detector, a plugin for OWASP ZAP. This tool figures out the endpoints of a web application, the parameters these endpoints accept, and the data type of those parameters. This includes the unlinked endpoints a spider won't find in client-side code, or optional parameters totally unused in client-side code. The plugin then imports this data into ZAP so you view the results, or work with the detected endpoints and parameters from the target site map.

Licensing

The Attack Surface Detector plugin is free to use. It is licensed under the link Mozilla Public License 2.0.

Roadmap

As of November, 2013, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

  • Complete the first draft of the Tool Project Template
  • Get other people to review the Tool Project Template and provide feedback
  • Incorporate feedback into changes in the Tool Project Template
  • Finalize the Tool Project template and have it reviewed to be promoted from an Incubator Project to a Lab Project

Subsequent Releases will add

  • Internationalization Support
  • Additional Unit Tests
  • Automated Regression tests

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of Tool Project Template is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:

Project Resources

This is where you can link to the key locations for project files, including setup programs, the source code repository, online documentation, a Wiki Home Page, threaded discussions about the project, and Issue Tracking system, etc.
