OWASP Web Testing Environment Project
OWASP WTE, or OWASP Web Testing Environment, is a collection of application security tools and documentation available in multiple formats such as VMs, Linux distribution packages, Cloud-based installations and ISO images.
The OWASP WTE project is an enhancement of the original OWASP Live CD Project and expands the offering from a static Live CD ISO image to a collection of sub-projects. Its primary goal is to
Make application security tools and documentation easily available and easy to use.
At its heart, OWASP WTE is a collection of easy to use application security tools and documentation. WTE has a variety of ways to distribute them:
The project is focused at provding a ready environment for testers, developers or trainers to learn, enhance, demonstrate or use their application security skills. Its been an active OWASP project since 2008 and has had over 300,000 downloads.
Beyond the collection of tools from OWASP and other security projects, OWASP WTE has begun producing and including its own security tools, especially where there were no existing tools which fit a particular need.
OWASP WTE is free to use. Its licensing is dependant on several factors:
In short, you can use and share OWASP WTE as much as you want. The only time you may have an obligation is when you modify and redistrubute OWASP WTE. If you are unsure, please ask the [OWASP WTE Mail list]
