Offensive Web Testing Framework

OWASP OWTF is a project that aims to make security assessments as efficient as possible by automating the manual, uncreative part of pen testing. It provides out-of-box support for the OWASP Testing Guide, the NIST and the PTES standards.

Easy to Use

  • Web UI: Now configure and monitor OWTF via a responsive and powerful interface accessible via your browser.
  • Exposes RESTful APIs to all core OWTF capabilties.
  • Unites popular tools

  • Instead of implementing yet another spider (a hard job), OWTF will scrub the output of all tools/plugins run to gather as many URLs as possible.
  • Scan by various aggression levels: OWTF supports scans which are based on the aggressiveness of the plugins/tools invoked.
  • Extensible OWTF manages tools through 'plugins' making it trivial to add new tools.
  • Use OWTF anywhere!

  • OWTF provides a Dockerfile to run on any platform Docker supports!
  • A new Docker Compose version coming soon...

  • Fastest Python MiTM proxy yet!

    Comprehensive interactive report at end of each scan

    Easy plugin-based system; currently 100+ plugins!
