What is WebGoat?
It is a deliberately insecure program, where you must go through a number of lessons. In each lesson, you learn about a new sort of vulnerability, and in the same moment get a hands-on try at exploiting that vulnerability.
Why you need webgoat ?
If you in field of hacking and security you know Web application security is difficult to learn and practice. Not many people have full blown web applications like online book stores or online banks that can be used to scan for vulnerabilities. In addition, security professionals frequently need to test tools against a platform known to be vulnerable to ensure that they perform as advertised. All of this needs to happen in a safe and legal environment. Even if your intentions are good, we believe you should never attempt to find vulnerabilities without permission.
