Review this project

OWTF aims to make pen testing:

  • Aligned with OWASP Testing Guide + PTES + NIST
  • More efficient
  • More comprehensive
  • More creative and fun (minimise un-creative work)

so that pentesters will have more time to

  • See the big picture and think out of the box
  • More efficiently find, verify and combine vulnerabilities
  • Have time to investigate complex vulnerabilities like business logic/architectural flaws or virtual hosting sessions
  • Perform more tactical/targeted fuzzing on seemingly risky areas
  • Demonstrate true impact despite the short timeframes we are typically given to test.

The latest version of OWASP OWTF is OWTF 2.3b "MacinOWTF".

OWTF is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers.

But we have also been helped by many organizations, either financially or through other means:

OWTF attempts to solve the "penetration testers are never given enough time to test properly" problem, or in other words, OWTF = Test/Exploit ASAP, with this in mind, as of right now, the priorities are:

  • To improve security testing efficiency (i.e. test more in less time)
  • To improve security testing coverage (i.e. test more)
  • Gradually integrate the best tools
  • Unite the best tools and make them work together with the security tester
  • Remove or Reduce the need to babysit security tools during security assessments
  • Be a respository of PoC resource links to assist exploitation of vulnerabilities in order to illustrate risk to businesses.
  • Help penetration testers save time on report writing

Involvement in the development and promotion of OWTF is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute. Some of the ways you can help:
