The ModSecurity Rules Language engine is extrememly flexible and robust and has been referred to as the "Swiss Army Knife of web application firewalls." While this is certainly true, it doesn't do much implicitly on its own and requires rules to tell it what to do. In order to enable users to take full advantage of ModSecurity out of the box, we have developed the Core Rule Set (CRS) which provides critical protections against attacks across most every web architecture.Breno SilvaRyan BarnettJuly, 20143/1/2014, 2014Wiki

BuilderConstructionIOWASP EJSF ProjectCodeGNU GPL v3 License (allows commercial use, but requires that modifications to your code stay open source, thus prohibiting proprietary forks of your project)OWASP_EJSF_Project web application frameworks have made it easy to develop high quality web applications, but developing a secure application still requires programmers to possess a deep understanding of security vulnerabilities and attacks. Sometimes it is difficult for an experienced developer to find and eliminate all the vulnerabilities. This demo represents the JSF-ESAPI framework based on JSF2.0 and OWASP ESAPI. It helps developers write a secure and lower-risk JSF based on a web application with minimal configuration and without extensive prior knowledge of the web security. The figure below shows a complete integration of the JSF-ESAPI framework with JSF2.0 and ESAPI. It works as a middleware and consists of four important modules. ESAPI Validation is the first module which verifies the user input as given in the XSS prevention cheat sheet provided by OWASP. It consists of many user-defined validator tags and generates appropriate error messages if the user input is not valid. In this way it performs a strong validation.
There are also some tags available in the correspondence validators in ESAPI, and they also filter the XSS relevant code from the input. The file-based authorization module simplifies the user’s role, such as admin, user, etc. and gives the permission to visualize certain components at the
presentation layer based on assigned roles. ESAPI Filtering layer compares the valid form token with tokens stored in the session for that user. If the token is mitigated or changed by man in the middle during the process of a request-response exchange, it will give the appropriate exception.
The last module is a render module, which renders the output after filtering the XSS content and encodes the vulnerable characters such as <,>,”,’ etc. as given in the XSS prevention cheat sheet provided by OWASP.
[JSF-ESAPI Complete Architecture]This framework will help developers to prevent a myriad of security problems including cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery, automatic input validation, and automatic output
validation with escaped “true” or without this parameter, authorization. All the features are included in one framework.
(1) It requires minimal configuration to use the framework.
(2) It ensures retrofit security in the existing application.
(3) It provides the same performance as JSF framework.
(4) Automatic filtering of the XSS vulnerable code from output takes place when escape equals true” or “false”.
(5) The input validation is easy and no additional coding is required.
(6) It has a layered architecture. It uses what you need and leaves what you don’t need at the moment.
(7) One framework includes the most secure features.

IOWASP iMAS - iOS Mobile Application Security ProjectCodeApache 2.0 License (fewest restrictions, even allowing proprietary modifications and proprietary forks of your project)OWASP_iMAS_iOS_Mobile_Application_Security_Project, Gregg.Ganley@owasp.orgiMAS – iOS secure application framework to reduce iOS application vulnerabilities and information loss

iMAS and its first open source static security controls for download and use in iOS applications. Visit and browse our project to find out more; download and give it a try. Once you do, tell us what you think or better yet, get involved and participate!

iMAS is a collaborative research project from the MITRE Corporation focused on open source iOS security controls. Today, iOS meets the enterprise security needs of customers, however many security experts cite critical vulnerabilities and have demonstrated exploits, which pushes enterprises to augment iOS deployments with commercial solutions. The iMAS intent is to protect iOS applications and data beyond the Apple provided security model and reduce the adversary’s ability and efficiency to perform recon, exploitation, control and execution on iOS mobile applications. iMAS will transform the effectiveness of the existing iOS security model across major vulnerability areas including the System Passcode, jailbreak, debugger / run-time, flash storage, and the system keychain. Research outcomes include an open source secure application framework, including an application container, developer and validation tools/techniques.

It simulates a real Path Traversal attack, only with actual existing files.

It operates as a middleman between the web application to its host server, which gives the abillity to test the actual files as found in the host server against the application, according to their relevant path.

After you have provided the relevant details, Path Traverser will connect (FTP) to your host server in order to pull out the list of files.
Then, it manipulates the list taken from the file system so it will fit the web application by changing their paths.

If your application could be found at: http://mysrvr:777/home
and the application files could be found in the file system under: myapps/demoapp/client/version/lastversion/, requests for files under: /myapps/demoapp/client/version/1.1/ will be created as: http://mysrvr:777/home/../1.1/ and requests for files under/myapp/differentapp/files/ will be created as: http://mysrvr:777/home/../../../../differentapp/files/, etc...

After that, the Path Traverser will start sending these requests one by one and log the results by the HTTP Response code selected.

IOWASP Secure Application Design ProjectDocumentApache 2.0 License (fewest restrictions, even allowing proprietary modifications and proprietary forks of your project)OWASP_Secure_Application_Design RaoAshish.Rao@owasp.orgDesign level flaws are lesser known concepts but their presence is a very big risk to the applications. Such flaws are hard to find in static or dynamic application scans and instead require deep understanding of application architecture and layout to uncover them manually.

Design level security is crucial and must be adopted at an early stage of application development to build a robust system. Thus the aim of this project is to impart secure design guidelines to application developers. The project will highlight vulnerable areas in application designs through real world examples and scenarios and touch up on different aspects of design level security. The focus will also be to explain measures to be taken to prevent such flaws while designing applications.

The guidelines will cover core design concepts which can applicable to any application independent of the platform.

Most of the design flaws will be discussed using sample code incorporated in an insecure design application. The project will also focus on releasing a secure design checklist for reviewing application designs or threat modelling them.
NAAshish RaoN/A has been two releases since the project inception, but due to errors, the release has been rolled back to the original. A new release is in the works.
