Customization

One of the core usage scenarios for OWASP Juice Shop is in employee trainings in order to facilitating security awareness. With its not entirely serious user roster and product inventory the application might not be suited for all audiences alike.

In some particularly traditional domains or conservative enterprises it would be beneficial to have the demo application look and behave more like an internal application.

OWASP Juice Shop can be customized in its product inventory and look & feel to accommodate this requirement. It also allows to add an arbitrary number of fake users to make demonstrations - particularly those of UNION-SQL injection attacks - even more impressive. Furthermore the Challenge solved!-notifications can be turned off in order to keep the impression of a "real" application undisturbed.

How to customize the application

The customization is powered by a YAML configuration file placed in /config. To run a customized OWASP Juice Shop you need to:

  1. Place your own .yml configuration file into /config
  2. Set the environment variable NODE_ENV to the filename of your config without the .yml extension
    • On Windows: set NODE_ENV=nameOfYourConfig
    • On Linux: export NODE_ENV=nameOfYourConfig
  3. Run npm start

You can also run a config directly in one command (on Linux) via NODE_ENV=nameOfYourConfig npm start. By default the config/default.yml config is used which generates the original OWASP Juice Shop look & feel and inventory. Please note that it is not necessary to run npm install after switching customization configurations.

Overriding default.yml in Docker container

In order to override the default configuration inside your Docker container with one of the provided configs, you can pass in the NODE_ENV environment variable with the -e parameter:

docker run -d -e "NODE_ENV=bodgeit" -p 3000:3000

In order to inject your own configuration, you can use -v to mount the default.yml path inside the container to any config file on your outside file system:

docker run -d -e "NODE_ENV=myConfig" -v /tmp/myConfig.yml:/juice-shop/config/myConfig.yml -p 3000:3000 --name juice-shop bkimminich/juice-shop

Overriding default.yml in Vagrant box

Currently it is not possible to override the default configuration in the Vagrant box. It is not set up in a way where it could pass the NODE_ENV environment variable to the Docker container that is spun up inside the box.

YAML configuration file

The YAML format for customizations is very straightforward. Below you find its schema along with an excerpt of the default settings.

Overriding default settings

When creating your own YAML configuration file, you can rely on the existing default values and only overwrite what you want to change. The provided config/ctf.yml file for capture-the-flag events for example is as short as this:

application:
  logo: JuiceShopCTF_Logo.png
  favicon: favicon_ctf.ico
  showVersionNumber: false
  showGitHubLinks: false
  welcomeBanner:
    showOnFirstStart: false
challenges:
  showHints: false
  safetyOverride: true
hackingInstructor:
  isEnabled: false
ctf:
  showFlagsInNotifications: true

Testing customizations

You can validate your custom configuration file against the schema by running npm run lint:config -- -f /path/to/myConfig.yml. This validation automatically happens on server startup as well.

To verify if your custom configuration will not break any of the challenges, you should run the end-to-end tests via npm run protractor. If they pass, all challenges will be working fine!

Material Color Themes

The application.theme property allows certain pre-defined color schemes. The table below shows sample screenshots for each of these.

Theme Sample screenshot
bluegrey-lightgreen
blue-lightblue
deeppurple-amber
indigo-pink
pink-bluegrey
purple-green
deeporange-indigo

Provided customizations

The following fully re-themed customizations are provided out of the box by OWASP Juice Shop for demonstration purposes:

Furthermore these convenience customizations are provided out-of-the-box to simplify usage of OWASP Juice Shop in specific use cases and situations:

  • CTF-mode: Keeps the Juice Shop in its default layout but disabled hints while enabling CTF flag codes in the "challenge solved"-notifications. Refer to Hosting a CTF event to learn more about running a CTF-event with OWASP Juice Shop. 🚩
  • Quiet mode: Keeps the Juice Shop in its default layout but hides all "challenge solved"-notifications, GitHub ribbon and challenge hints. 🔇
  • Tutorial mode: Restricts the user to first solve all challenges with Hacking Instructor tutorials before the entire Score Board gets unlocked and filterable. 🏫 Hidden challenges can still be solved and users will receive corresponding success notifications!
  • Unsafe mode: Keeps everything at default settings except enabling all potentially dangerous challenges even in containerized environments. ☠️ Use at your own risk!

Mozilla-CTF theme

BodgeIt Store theme

Limitations

  • When running a customization (except default.yml) that overwrites the property application.domain, the description of the challenges Ephemeral Accountant, Forged Signed JWT and Unsigned JWT will always be shown in English.
  • Configurations (except default.yml) do not support translation of custom product names and descriptions as of v11.1.1.
  • Several Hacking Instructor scripts depend on product inventory and product reviews that might not exist in the required form when you overwrote the default products list. Consider turning off the tutorials by setting hackingInstructor.isEnabled to false in that case.

Additional Browser tweaks

Consider you are doing a live demo with a highly customized corporate theme. Your narrative is, that this really is an upcoming eCommerce application of that company. Walking the "happy path" might now lure you into two situations which could spoil the immersion for the audience.

Coupon codes on social media

If you configured the twitterUrl/facebookUrl as the company's own account/page, you will most likely not find any coupon codes posted there. You will probably fail to convince the social media team to tweet or retweet some coupon code for an application that does not even exist!

Coupon Immersion Spoiler

OAuth Login

Another immersion spoiler occurs when demonstrating the Log in with Google functionality, which will show you the application name registered on Google Cloud Platform: OWASP Juice Shop! There is no way to convince Google to show anything else for obvious trust and integrity reasons.

OAuth Immersion Spoiler

ℹ️ Since v10.0.0 you can overwrite the googleOauth subsection to use your own application on Google Cloud Platform for handling OAuth. This is a relatively high effort, so maybe you want to kill two birds with one stone instead as described in the next section.

On-the-fly text replacement

You can solve both of the above problems in your own Browser by replacing text on the fly when the Twitter, Facebook or Google-Login page is loaded. For Chrome Word Replacer II is a plugin that does this work for you with very little setup effort. For Firefox FoxReplace does a similar job. After installing either plugin you have to create two text replacements:

  1. Create a replacement for OWASP Juice Shop (as it appears on Google-Login) with your own application name. Best use application.name from your configuration.
  2. Create another replacement for a complete or partial Tweet or Facebook post with some marketing text and an actual coupon code. You can get valid coupon codes from the OWASP Juice Shop Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/owasp_juiceshop.

    Word Replacer II

  3. Enable the plugin and verify your replacements work:
