OWASP PHP Security Training Project
The goal of this project is to create an interactive training system,
consisting of several units, for PHP developers. Every unit is divided in
an attack and a defense part. Every unit shall be divided in an attack and
a defense part. When working through the attack part, the developers will
have to strike against a vulnerable application. Through this, they will
learn to think like a hacker. Weaknesses to detect and exploit might be
XSS, CSRF or SQL Injection, which are listed in the OWASP top 10. For more
information, please contact the Project Leader, Timo Pagel.
