Web Application Security with WebGoat (OWASP)

If you develop applications for the web understanding the latest security exploits is crucial to securing your site.  WebGoat by the Open Web Application Security Project is a great tool to test your knowledge.  WebGoat is a J2ee application designed to deploy to Tomcat.  The application contains numerous security holes and lessons dedicated to showing users (hands on) how to exploit them.  I highly recommend WebGoat and enjoyed going through the lessons.  You will need WebScarab for the advanced lessons.
