Announcing the OWASP Sprajax Project - the first AJAX Security Scanner

OWASP thanks Denim Group for the donation of Sprajax, an open source security scanner for AJAX-enabled applications. Sprajax, a Microsoft .Net-based application is the first web security scanner developed specifically to scan AJAX web applications for security vulnerabilities.

“Denim Group is committed to furthering the field of application security,” said Dan Cornell, principal of Denim Group, “and by donating Sprajax to OWASP, we intend to generate more discussion around security vulnerabilities within AJAX applications. Providing the tool under the OWASP banner will make it more visible within the application security community. We saw a need for a product in the industry and took it upon ourselves to begin work on the project. Moving forward, the larger user base and development base provided by the association with OWASP will ultimately strengthen and enhance this tool.”

“Securing AJAX technology is a new challenge for the application security community,” said Jeff Williams, chairman of OWASP. “Denim Group’s contribution and leadership role in the OWASP Sprajax project will help developers worldwide produce more secure AJAX applications.” Sprajax is available for immediate download.
