This has just been updated http://sectools.org/ (Top 125 Network Security Tools) but it would be great to have a similar result for the owasp leaders (i.e. what tools they use)

Hi guys,

sorry if this question is maybe not appropriate for this list.
At the moment I try to compile a list of useful pen testing tools / security scanners for a colleague at OWASP China.

If someone of you might have a good recommendations of their favourite tools that go beyond the common nmap, Nessus, SAINT, OpenVAS or know a good source online, any help/opinion would be highly appreciated.

There are a number of tool lists out there (e.g. I noticed that OWASP Phoenix chapter compiled a long list of tools),  unfortunately they don't give any qualifying advise on which of the tools are most useful, and which are not so useful.

So any advise and recommendations from the pen testing community, about their top-3 to top-10 favourite tools would be great insight.

Best regards, Tobias
