Skipfish: A new web application security tool from Google

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Last Friday, Google released a new security tool known as Skipfish, written by Michal Zalewski, a Polish security researcher and author of various tools and books, with contributions and feedback from Google’s information security engineering team. Skipfish aims to help web application developers secure and┬áreveal┬ávarious possible security flaws of their applications. Since web applications become more and more complex, developers need similar tools to check and validate the security of their code. Michal Zalewski wrote in a blog article, “The safety of the Internet is of paramount importance to Google, and helping web developers build secure, reliable web applications is an important part of the equation.”
