Two questions for OWASP

  • TOOLS discussion: in the old version of the Testing Guide we cited open source and commercial tools for each type of test to perform that could help during the analysis. Would you like to cite both?

  • CWE: many companies are using this standard, but at the moment not all the Testing Guide tests are mapped to a specific CWE. Is it possible to set up a working team with CWE to update it with all the tests we describe in the Testing Guide?
