OWASP Secu-RT Project
OWASP Secu-RT Project
The OWASP Secu-RT Project is an attempt to use the JVM itself for taint tracking. This project started by a challenge given to me at Appsec EU conference in Hamburg as I said that it should be possible to do dynamic source-sink analysis in basic Java applications. My challengers then told me: "Prove it". It took a while, but fairly soon I had a simple setup in which I demonstrated simple Log manipulation on the commandline and that it was detectable. This project is the continuation of that proof and is aimed at developers to help them detect security vulnerabilities using live source-sink analysis. It is dependent on the code coverage and not aimed to be used in a production environment.
This project aims to provide an invisible source-sink analyser/taint tracker. It will do this by knowing the various sources and sinks in each JVM language and displays the full trace of a string that entered through a source and exits unmanaged at a sink.
This project is not intended to be used in a production environment, but as an aid in testing the security flow during the QA phase.

News and Events
Many projects have "Frequently Asked Questions" documents or pages. However, the point of such a document is not the questions. The point of a document like this are the answers. The document contains the answers that people would otherwise find themselves giving over and over again. The idea is that rather than laboriously compose and post the same answers repeatedly, people can refer to this page with pre-prepared answers. Use this space to communicate your projects 'Frequent Answers.'
How can I participate in your project?
All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.
If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?
Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator.
The first contributors to the project were:
A project roadmap is the envisioned plan for the project. The purpose of the roadmap is to help others understand where the project is going as well as areas that volunteers may contribute. It gives the community a chance to understand the context and the vision for the goal of the project. Additionally, if a project becomes inactive, or if the project is abandoned, a roadmap can help ensure a project can be adopted and continued under new leadership. Roadmaps vary in detail from a broad outline to a fully detailed project charter. Generally speaking, projects with detailed roadmaps have tended to develop into successful projects. Some details that leaders may consider placing in the roadmap include: envisioned milestones, planned feature enhancements, essential conditions, project assumptions, development timelines, etc. You are required to have at least 4 milestones for every year the project is active.
As of November, 2013, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:
- Complete the first draft of the Code Project Template
- Get other people to review the Code Project Template and provide feedback
- Incorporate feedback into changes in the Code Project Template
- Finalize the Code Project template and have it reviewed to be promoted from an Incubator Project to a Lab Project
Subsequent Releases will add
- Internationalization Support
- Additional Unit Tests
- Automated Regression tests
Involvement in the development and promotion of Code Project Template is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:
We could implement some of the later items on the roadmap sooner if someone wanted to help out with unit or automated regression tests
Are you fluent in another language? Can you help translate the text strings in the Code Project Template into that language?
Do you have a flair for finding bugs in software? We want to product a high quality product, so any help with Quality Assurance would be greatly appreciated. Let us know if you can offer your help.
Please use the Code Project Template project mailing list for feedback about:
- What do like?
- What don't you like?
- What features would you like to see prioritized on the roadmap?
This page is where you should indicate what is the minimum set of functionality that is required to make this a useful product that addresses your core security concern. Defining this information helps the project leader to think about what is the critical functionality that a user needs for this project to be useful, thereby helping determine what the priorities should be on the roadmap. And it also helps reviewers who are evaluating the project to determine if the functionality sufficiently provides the critical functionality to determine if the project should be promoted to the next project category.
The Code Project Template must specify the minimum set of tabs a project should have, provide some an example layout on each tab, provide instructional text on how a project leader should modify the tab, and give some example text that illustrates how to create an actual project.
It would also be ideal if the sample text was translated into different languages.
This page is where you need to place your legacy project template page if your project was created before October 2013. To edit this page you will need to edit your project information template. You can typically find this page by following this address and substituting your project name where it says "OWASP_Example_Project". When in doubt, ask the OWASP Projects Manager.
