OWASP WTE - Now in the Cloud!


Published on

OWASP WTE, or OWASP Web Testing Environment, is a collection of application security tools and documentation available in multiple formats such as VMs, Linux distribution packages, Cloud-based installations and ISO images.

This presentation provides an overview and history of OWASP WTE. Additionally, it shows new OWASP WTE developments including the the ability to use WTE remotely by installing it on a cloud-based server.

Broad IT background Developer, DBA, Sys Admin, Pen Tester, Application Security professional, CISSP, CEH, RHCE, Linux+ Long history with Linux and Open Source Contributor to many projects Leader of OWASP Live CD / WTE Former OWASP Foundation Board Member Breaking “the cloud” for Rackspace

  12. 12. 12 The project has grown to more than just a Live CD VMWare installs/appliances VirtualBox installs USB Installs Training Environment .... Add in the transition to Ubuntu and the possibilities are endless (plus the 26,000+ packages in the Ubuntu repos)
  13. 13. 13 GOAL Make application security tools and documentation easily available and easy to use Compliment's OWASP goal to make app security visible Design goals Easy for users to keep updated Easy for project lead to keep updated Easy to produce releases (more on this later) Focused on just application security – not general pen testing

  31. 31. What is next?
  32. 32. 32
  33. 33. 33 Among the new ides for WTE are Live CDs & Live DVDs Virtual installs/appliances A package repository Can add 1+ tool to any Debian based Linux # apt-get install owasp-wte-* Custom remixes of any of the above Targeted installs WebGoat Developer Version Wubi USB and Kiosk version
  34. 34. 34 OWASP Education Project Natural ties between these projects Already being used for training classes Need to coordinate efforts to make sure critical pieces aren't missing from the OWASP WTE Training environment could be customized for a particular class thanks to the individual modules Student gets to take the environment home As more modules come online, even more potential for cross pollination Builder tools/docs only expand its reach
  35. 35. 35 Builder is where the ROI is But darn it, breaking is really fun. Builder tools coming in future releases. (Thanks Top Gear!) Builder vs Breaker
  36. 36. 36 Crazy “Pie in the Sky” idea .deb package + auto update + categories = WTE profiles Allows someone to customize the OWASP WTE to their needs Example profiles Whitebox testing Blackbox testing Static Analysis Target specific (Java, .Net, ...) Profile + VM = custom persistent environment
  37. 37. 37 Goals going forward Showcase great OWASP projects Provide the best, freely distributable application security tools/documents in an easy to use package Ensure that tools provided are easy to use as possible
  38. 38. 38 Goals going forward Continue to document how to use the tools and how the modules were created Align the tools with the OWASP Testing Guide v4 to provide maximum coverage Add more developer focused tools

  43. 43. 43 Step 2: Select Ubuntu/Debian
  44. 44. 44 Step 3: Choose Name & RAM
  45. 45. 45 Step 4: Start your server
  46. 46. 46 Step 5: Install Desktop + WTE
  47. 47. 47 Step 6: More installs Add Repos & apt-get update Ubuntu partners & WTE Add a NX Server ppa:freenx-team (plus a fix) Add OWASP user Start GDM

  55. 55. 55 Cost Estimates
  56. 56. 56 Cost Estimates Estimated for 40 hours + 1 GB transfer $4.98 Estimated for M-F by 24 hours + 1 GB transfer = $15.48 Estimated 30 days by 24 hours + 4 GB transfer = $88.32
  57. 57. Now what?
  58. 58. 58 More Automation Create a wte-cloud package Wraps up all tools into 1 package Make configuration steps into a script Add to postinst for wte-cloud package Get setup down to a single step Ideally all in the wte-cloud package
  59. 59. 59 Even More Automation Python library to abstract away differences between multiple cloud provider APIs Cloud Servers Cloud Storage Cloud Load balancers Supports 24 different providers
  60. 60. 60 More Options Different desktop installs Minimal Baseline Instant WebGoat in the sky Internal Clouds OpenStack, Vmware, VirtualBox (headless)
  61. 61. 61 Document, Document Document Document and post the current manual process (coming soon) Create then document the Libcloud process Tutorials for various providers
  62. 62. Problems
  63. 63. 63 Current Issues Yikes AMD64 CPU sqlmap is missing a dependency WTE Firefox is for i386 NX server is a bit tricky The WTE theme gets lost
  64. 64. 64 Like what you see, then get involved? Join the OWASP mail list Announcements are there – low traffic Download an ISO or VM or Cloud instance Complain or praise, suggest improvements Submit a bug to the Google Code site
  65. 65. 65 How can you get involved? Suggest missing doc or links Do a screencast of one of the tools Suggest some cool new tool Create a .deb package
