Maven Security Firsts
Maven has always had a commitment to giving back to the community, and that has lead to a number of “firsts” we are proud of.
Achilles was the first publicly released general-purpose web application security audit tool. While quite basic by today’s standards, it was transformative to have an easy to use, publicly available tool to intercept and modify web traffic.
WebMaven was the first interactive web application that emulated various security holes. This was a useful tool for training and self-learning as a way to safely & legally practicing IT security audit techniques, as well as bench marking and vetting audit tools. It was adopted by the Open Web Application Security Project as OWASP WebGoat v1 in ~ 2002.
Another industry first: An open-source self-contained training environment for web application security penetration testing. The Dojo contains everything needed to get started – tools, targets, and documentation, all preconfigured for ease of use. There are thousands of downloads of this project every month, and many people have used it to increase their knowledge of web security.
