OWASP iGoat Project
Welcome to the iGoat OWASP project home page.
iGoat is a learning tool for iOS developers (iPhone, iPad, etc.). It was inspired by the WebGoat project, and has a similar conceptual flow to it.
As such, iGoat is a safe environment where iOS developers can learn about the major security pitfalls they face as well as how to avoid them. It is made up of a series of lessons that each teach a single (but vital) security lesson.
The lessons are laid out in the following steps:
1 - Brief introduction to the problem.
2 - Verify the problem by exploiting it.
3 - Brief description of available remediations to the problem.
4 - Fix the problem by correcting and rebuilding the iGoat program.
Step 4 is optional, but highly recommended for all iOS developers. Assistance is available within iGoat if you don't know how to fix a specific problem.
iGoat is free software, released under the GPLv3 license.
iGoat has been designed and built to be a foundation on which to build a series of iOS security lessons. The initial iGoat release will include a handful of lessons to work through, but one of the aims of the project is to build a community of developers to help build out additional lessons over time -- much as WebGoat has before it.
Interested contributors are encouraged to contact the project leader (Ken van Wyk, email@example.com) to find out how they can contribute to future releases of iGoat.
The iGoat project was launched in May 2011. As of this writing (12 May 2011), we're expecting a first release in June 2011.
