OWASP O2 Platform
The O2 Platform is focused on automating application security knowledge and workflows. It is specifically designed for developers and security consultants to be able to perform quick, effective and thorough source code-driven application security reviews (blackbox + whitebox). In addition to the manual findings created/discovered by security consultants, the OWASP O2 Platform allows the easy consumption of results from multiple OWASP projects and commercial scanning tools. This allows security consultants to find, exploit and automate (via Unit Tests) security vulnerabilities usually dismissed by the community as impossible to find/recreate. More importantly, it provides security consultants a mechanism to: (a) "talk" with developers (via UnitTest), (b) give developers a way to replicate + "check if it's fixed" the vulnerabilities reported and (c) engage in a two-way conversion on the best way to fix/remediate those vulnerabilities.
