I am getting ready to set up this project but waiting to see whether or not

Framework to OWASP


When I went to the following site, which is linked to from the projects
source forge page, my corporate firewall blocked it stating it contained
malicious content.


I have not requested a log report yet to try and determine the exact cause
of this, but thought I would raise the issue to see if anyone might know
what would trigger this, assuming that it is a false positive.

Thank you for your interest and willingness to bring your project to OWASP!


I've also CC-ed Matt Tesauro who leads the LiveCD project - as you pointed
out, there's potentially a great deal of synergy there.


Paulo - can you setup a mailing list of this project? I believe they've
provided all the details we need to populate an initial wiki template page
as well.

Dear Sir 

We are running a project - Mantra - Security Framework that we would like to
bring to OWASP.

Hereby we are submitting the required details as per OWASP
documentations/guidelines for your kind review to get start the project with

Project Name

Mantra - Security Framework

Project purpose / overview 

Mantra is a collection of free and open source tools integrated into a web
browser, which can become handy for students, penetration testers, web
application developers,security professionals etc. It is portable,
ready-to-run, compact and follows the true spirit of free and open source

Mantra is a security framework which can be very helpful in performing all
the five phases of attacks including reconnaissance, scanning and
enumeration, gaining access, escalation of privileges,maintaining access,
and covering tracks. Apart from that it also contains a set of tools
targeted for web developers and code debuggers which makes it handy for both
offensive security and defensive security related tasks.

Mantra is lite, flexible, portable and user friendly with a nice graphical
user interface. You can carry it in memory cards, flash drives, CD/DVDs,
etc. It can be run natively on Linux, Windows and Mac platforms. It can also
be installed on to your system within minutes. Mantra is absolutely free of
cost and takes no time for you to set up.  

Project Roadmap

1. Create an ecosystem for hackers based on browser

2. To bring the attention of security people to the potential of a browser
based security platform

3. Provide easy to use and portable platform for demonstrating common web
based attacks( read training )

4. To associate with other security tools/products to make a better
environment. Eg:

         a. It can be a nice addition to OWASP Live CD

         b. It can be used to solve basic levels of CTF contests

         c. It can associate with projects like DVWA to showcase attacks

         d. It can bring functions like crawler, SQL injection scanner etc
by installing extensions.
