Learning about web security with Web Security Dojo

Conclusions

Web Security Dojo provides an excellent training opportunity for budding security professionals who want to become familiar with the basic mechanisms for protecting web applications. The OVA image is easy to install, and the XFCE desktop is easy to configure. The developers have carefully adapted the tools and test environments for their intended use, so you can get started with the practical exercises right away.

Keep in mind that, although Web Security Dojo is a powerful tool for learning about web security, it is not intended as a production-ready pen test distribution – the developers recommend Kali Linux [6] if you need to do some real penetration testing.
