                                  Damn Small Vulnerable Web (DWVW) is a deliberately vulnerable web application to test your exploitation skills. It provides developers and penetration testers a practice tool. For developers, it is good to see common mistakes and create more secure software. Pentesters will be able to improve vulnerability detection and improving their attacks. Hopefully with the end goal of achieving privilege escalation or unauthorized data retrieval.

                                      VuLnDAP is a tool to show what can happen when a web application becomes vulnerable due to the business logic behind it. This tool uses LDAP, a common authentication protocol, to show such weaknesses. This tool helps penetration testers more about LDAP. At the same time, it provides useful insights to web and software developers to create more secure software.
