OWASP OMTG Hacking Playground
OWASP OMTG Hacking Playground Tool Project
The OMTG hacking playground consists of a vulnerable Android App that maps to the different test cases in the OWASP Mobile Testing Guide. An iOS will be available soon.
The OWASP Mobile Testing Guide (OMTG) will be similar to the OWASP Web Application Testing Guide, but will have specific test cases only applicable to mobile platforms. In order to give practical guidance to developers, security researches and penetration testers, a hacking playground was created that consists of different mobile App’s that contain different vulnerabilities that map to the OMTG test cases. Every test case described in the OMTG will therefore be implemented in an Android and iOS App. This has two advantages:

News and Events
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. See the Road Map and Getting Involved tab for more details.
- Include more test cases into the Android App so all possible test cases are included
- Review the test cases
- A branch of the Android App will be created with Code Obfuscation, by using ProGuard to show developers how to enable code obfuscation and how it looks like once it's activated but it's also a playground to show penetration testers/security researches ways to reverse engineer the code.
- Keep the documentation up-to-date and the link to the OMTG
- Create an iOS App that also includes the different test cases of the OWASP Mobile Testing Guide.
- Maintain the Android / iOS App in case the OWASP Mobile Testing Guide is getting updated, e.g. new best practices are available or new vulnerabilities are disclosed.
- Presentation of the OWASP Mobile Testing Guide (status update) and Hacking Playground at Security Conferences/Meetups.
Involvement in the development and promotion of the Hacking Playground is actively encouraged!
The OWASP Hacking Playground is an open source effort and we welcome contributions and feedback. To discuss the Hacking Playground join the OWASP Mobile Security Project Slack Channel (#project-mobile_omtg. You can sign up here:
You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:
- Fork the Hacking Playground on GitHub
- Make changes, add new test cases and create a pull request.
Please create an issue on GitHub for feedback.
