Written by Björn Kimminich

OWASP Juice Shop logo

This is the official companion guide to the OWASP Juice Shop application. Being a web application with 47 intended security vulnerabilities, the OWASP Juice Shop is supposed to be the opposite of a best practice or template application for web developers: It is an awareness, training, demonstration and exercise tool for security risks in modern web applications. The OWASP Juice Shop is an open-source project hosted by the non-profit Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and is developed and maintained by volunteers. The content of this book was written for v5.1.0-SNAPSHOT of OWASP Juice Shop.

The book is divided into three parts:

Part I - Hacking preparations

Part one helps you to get the application running and to set up optional hacking tools.

Part II - Challenge hunting

Part two gives an overview of the vulnerabilities found in the OWASP Juice Shop including hints how to find and exploit them in the application.

Part III - Getting involved

Part three shows up various ways to contribute to the OWASP Juice Shop open source project.


Please be aware that this book is not supposed to be a comprehensive introduction to Web Application Security in general. For every category of vulnerabilities present in the OWASP Juice Shop you will find a brief explanation - typically by quoting and referencing to existing content on the given topic.
