Introduction

Free and Open Source Browser based Security Framework


Description

Mantra is a browser especially designed for web application security testing. By having such a product, more people will come to know the easiness and flexibility of being able to follow basic testing procedures within the browser. Mantra believes that having such a portable, easy to use and yet powerful platform can be helpful for the industry.

Mantra has many built in tools to modify headers, manipulate input strings, replay GET/POST requests, edit cookies, quickly switch between multiple proxies, control forced redirects etc. This makes it a good software for performing basic security checks and sometimes, exploitation. Thus, Mantra can be used to solve basic levels of various web based CTFs, showcase security issues in vulnerable web applications etc.

Volunteers

OWASP Mantra is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The primary contributors to date have been:

Gokul C Gopinath, Maximiliano Soler, Niraj Mohite, Rahul Babu R, Gopu C Gopinath and Thomas Mackenzie


As of now, the priorities are: Create an ecosystem for hackers based on browser To bring the attention of security people to the potential of a browser based security platform Provide easy to use and portable platform for demonstrating common web based attacks( read training ) To associate with other security tools/products to make a better environment. Eg: It can be a nice addition to OWASP Live CD It can be used to solve basic levels of CTF contests It can associate with projects like DVWA to showcase attacks It can bring functions like crawler, SQL injection scanner etc by installing extensions.

Involvement in the development and promotion of OWASP Mantra is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute.
