Oedipus – Open Source Web Application Security Analysis

Use Netsparker


Oedipus is an open source web application security analysis and testing suite written in Ruby by Penetration Testers for Penetration Testers. It is capable of parsing different types of log files off-line and identifying security vulnerabilities. Using the analyzed information, Oedipus can dynamically test web sites for application and web server vulnerabilities.

Oedipus can be broken down into 4 main components:

1. Analyzer

Capable of parsing several different types of log files, such as Burp, Paros, etc, identifying potential security vulnerabilities using pattern matching – An Oedipus input file is also produced.

2. Scanner

Parsers the Oedipus or IEnterceptor file, feeding each request to a dynamically loaded predefined security plug-in on the fly.

3. Reporter

Using the results from the Analyzer and the Scanner, Oedipus produces several well formatted reports designed for the Penetration Tester. The Scanner report can be interactively used to verify the results of the potential vulnerabilities discovered.

4. Tools

Using the above identified security vulnerabilities, a number of tools are provided to analyze and potentially exploit the vulnerability.
