Full Description

OWASP Juice Shop

The most trustworthy online shop out there.

OWASP Juice Shop is an intentionally insecure web app for security
trainings written entirely in Javascript which encompasses the entire
OWASP Top Ten and other
severe security flaws.


Juice Shop is written in Node.js, Express and AngularJS. It was the
first application written entirely in JavaScript listed in the
OWASP VWA Directory.

The application contains over 30 challenges of varying difficulty where
the user is supposed to exploit the underlying vulnerabilities. The
hacking progress is tracked on a score board. Finding this score board
is actually one of the (easy) challenges!

Apart from the hacker and awareness training use case, pentesting
proxies or security scanners can use Juice Shop as a "guinea
pig"-application to check how well their tools cope with
Javascript-heavy application frontends and REST APIs.

Translating "dump" or "useless outfit" into German yields "Saftladen"
which can be reverse-translated word by word into "juice shop". Hence
the project name. That the initials "JS" match with those of
"Javascript" was purely coincidental!

Main Selling Points

  • Easy-to-install: Choose between
    Docker and
    Vagrant to run on
  • Self-contained: Additional dependencies are pre-packaged or will be
    resolved and downloaded automatically
  • Self-healing: The simple SQLite database is wiped and regenerated from
    scratch on every server startup
  • Gamification: The application notifies you on solved challenges and
    keeps track of successfully exploited vulnerabilities on a Score Board
  • CTF-support: Challenge notifications optionally show a flag code for
    your own
    Capture-The-Flag events
  • Re-branding: Fully customizable business context and look & feel
  • Free and Open source: Licensed under the MIT license with
    no hidden costs or caveats

Application Architecture


Feel free to have a look at the latest version of OWASP Juice Shop:

This is a deployment-test and sneak-peek instance only! You are not
to use this instance for your own hacking endeavours! No
guaranteed uptime! Guaranteed stern looks if you break it!


Deploy on Heroku (free ($0/month) dyno)

  1. Click the button below and follow the instructions

This is the quickest way to get a running instance of Juice Shop! If
you have forked this repository, the deploy button will automatically
pick up your fork for deployment! As long as you do not perform any
DDoS attacks you are free to use any tools or scripts to hack your
Juice Shop instance on Heroku!

From Sources

  1. Install node.js
  2. Run git clone (or
    clone your own fork
    of the repository)
  3. Go into the cloned folder with cd juice-shop
  4. Run npm install (only has to be done before first start or when you
    change the source code)
  5. Run npm start
  6. Browse to http://localhost:3000

Docker Container

  1. Install Docker
  2. Run docker pull bkimminich/juice-shop
  3. Run docker run -d -p 3000:3000 bkimminich/juice-shop
  4. Browse to http://localhost:3000 (on macOS browse to instead)

Even easier: Run Docker Container from Docker Toolbox (Kitematic)

  1. Install and launch
    Docker Toolbox
  2. Search for juice-shop and click Create to download image and run
  3. Click on the Open icon next to Web Preview to browse to OWASP
    Juice Shop

Packaged Distributions

  1. Install a 64bit node.js on your
    Windows (or Linux) machine
  2. Download juice-shop-<version>_<node-version>_<os> (or
    .tgz) attached to
    latest release
  3. Unpack and run npm start in unpacked folder
  4. Browse to http://localhost:3000

Each packaged distribution includes some binaries for SQLite bound to
the OS and node.js version which npm install was executed on.

Amazon EC2 Instance

  1. Setup an Amazon Linux AMI instance
  2. In Step 3: Configure Instance Details unfold Advanced Details and
    copy the script below into User Data
  3. In Step 6: Configure Security Group add a Rule that opens port 80
    for HTTP
  4. Launch instance
  5. Browse to your instance's public DNS
yum update -y
yum install -y docker
service docker start
docker pull bkimminich/juice-shop
docker run -d -p 80:3000 bkimminich/juice-shop

Technically Amazon could view hacking activity on any EC2 instance as
an attack on their AWS infrastructure! We highly discourage aggressive
scanning or automated brute force attacks! You have been warned!


  1. Install Vagrant and
  2. Run git clone (or
    clone your own fork
    of the repository)
  3. Run cd vagrant && vagrant up
  4. Browse to


Via a YAML configuration file in /config, the OWASP Juice Shop can be
customized in its content and look & feel. Please refer to for detailed instructions and

Node.js version compatibility

OWASP Juice Shop officially supports the following versions of
node.js and offers Docker images and packaged
distributions accordingly:

node.js Docker images Docker snapshots Packaged distributions
4.x node4 node4-snapshot, node4-develop juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node4_linux_x64.tgz
6.x latest, node6 snapshot, develop, node6-snapshot, node6-develop juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node6_linux_x64.tgz
7.x node7 node7-snapshot, node7-develop juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node7_linux_x64.tgz

The stable Docker images are built from master while the snapshot
images are built from develop branch. The latter contain unreleased
features but cannot be considered stable.
