Talk:OWASP iGoat Project
^^^ Rest assured the iGoat project is NOT inactive. We're merely finding it a new home on Github after its home on Google Code went away. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we most assuredly are working on a new release.
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:
Brief introduction to the problem. Verify the problem by exploiting it. Brief description of available remediations to the problem. 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.
NOTE: Please bear with us as we move this project over to Github. In the meantime, the current version is 2.3, and it can be downloaded here: https://github.com/owasp/igoat
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 protected]) to find out how they can contribute to future releases of iGoat.
The iGoat project was launched in May 2011. Version 2.3 was released on 20 November 2014. Source repository and download site:
