OWASP A&D Project

A&D stands for Attack and Defense. OWASP A&D Project is a Deliberately Vulnerable Web-application Interactive Platform focuses on web application developers to fix its vulnerabilities through the real world like environment. We call this platform A&D platform.

The platform will include standalone mode for self-study and competition mode for event, and also it will support attack to the web application from operator and state of web application vulnerabilities.


OWASP A&D project provides an environment where participants can experience attacks and defenses of web application security. The project aim is participants to acquire skills of fixing the vulnerability exists on the web-application.

News and Events

  • [16 Apr 2018] OWASP A&D Project will be announced and A&D Competition event will be held at Attack and Defense Sendai event on 21 Apr 2018.

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 OWASP Security Principles project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers.

The first contributors to the project were:


As of Apr, 2018, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

  • develop deliberately vulnerable web-application platform.
  • develop 3 insecure web application for the platform.
  • create A&D Quick Start Guide for Event .
  • create A&D Quick Start Guide for Self-Study.
  • Finalize the A&D project and have it reviewed to be promoted from an Incubator Project to a Lab Project.


  • Attack and Defense Quick Start Guide(PDF).
  • Deliberately vulnerable web-application platform source code, docker image, and vm image.
  • Insecure web application's source code, docker image, and vm image.

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of OWASP A&D Project 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 OWASP A&D Project 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 A&D 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?

The A&D Project 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 text was translated into different languages.

The OWASP A&D project is intended as place for people to learn about new, modern and different web related application security issues and learn how to fix the issues through hands on environment. It also has contest mode with scoring functionality for easy to use for CTF-like event. More pieces will be released as they are available, as well as training and other learning aids.
