OWASP
Last modified: Tuesday, January 21, 2003 

Short for Open Web Application Security Project, an open source community project set up to develop software tools and knowledge-based documentation for Web application security. Some of the project’s work includes:
  • A guide to define security requirements to build secure Web applications.
  • Developing an industry standard testing framework for Web application security.
  • VulnXML - A standard data exhange format to allow commercial, open source and research tools to communicate and interoperate.
  • Web Scarab - An open source enterprise-level Web application scanner.
  • Developing a component-based approach to filtering malicious input and output to a Web application.
  • Web Maven - An intentionally insecure Internet bank users can download and learn from.

All of the project’s software and documentation is released under the GNU GPL, and the project is staffed entirely of volunteers.
