  • VulnXML – A standard data exhange format to allow commercial, open source and research tools to communicate and interoperate.
  • Web Scarab – An open source enterprise-level Web application scanner.
  • Developing a component-based approach to filtering malicious input and output to a Web application.
  • Web Maven – An intentionally insecure Internet bank users can download and learn from.
