The most trustworthy online shop out there. (@dschadow) β€” The best juice shop on the whole internet! (@shehackspurple) β€” Actually the most bug-free vulnerable application in existence! (@vanderaj) β€” First you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚then you 😒 (@kramse)

OWASP Juice Shop is probably the most modern and sophisticated insecure web application! It can be used in security trainings, awareness demos, CTFs and as a guinea pig for security tools! Juice Shop encompasses vulnerabilities from the entire OWASP Top Ten along with many other security flaws found in real-world applications!

For a detailed introduction, full list of features and architecture overview please visit the official project page: http://owasp-juice.shop


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

  1. Sign up to Heroku and log in to your account
  2. 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 GitHub repo size

  1. Install node.js
  2. Run git clone https://github.com/bkimminich/juice-shop.git (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

Packaged Distributions GitHub release SourceForge

  1. Install a 64bit node.js on your Windows (or Linux) machine
  2. Download juice-shop-<version>_<node-version>_<os>_x64.zip (or .tgz) attached to latest release
  3. Unpack and cd into the unpacked folder
  4. Run npm start
  5. 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.

Docker Container Docker Automated build Docker Pulls Docker Stars

  1. Install Docker
  2. Run docker pull bkimminich/juice-shop
  3. Run docker run --rm -p 3000:3000 bkimminich/juice-shop
  4. Browse to http://localhost:3000 (on macOS and Windows browse to if you are using docker-machine instead of the native docker installation)

If you want to run Juice Shop on a Raspberry Pi 3, there is an unofficial Docker image available at https://hub.docker.com/r/arclight/juice-shop_arm which is based on resin/rpi-raspbian and maintained by @battletux.

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 container
  3. Click on the Open icon next to Web Preview to browse to OWASP Juice Shop


  1. Install Vagrant and Virtualbox
  2. Run git clone https://github.com/bkimminich/juice-shop.git (or clone your own fork of the repository)
  3. Run cd vagrant && vagrant up
  4. Browse to

There is a very convenient Vagrant box available at https://app.vagrantup.com/commjoen/boxes/trainingbox (πŸ”¬) from @commjoen which comes with latest Docker containers of the OWASP Juice Shop, OWASP WebGoat and other vulnerable web applications as well as pentesting tools like OWASP ZAP.

Amazon EC2 Instance

  1. In the EC2 sidenav select Instances and click Launch Instance
  2. In Step 1: Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) choose an Amazon Linux AMI or Amazon Linux 2 AMI
  3. In Step 3: Configure Instance Details unfold Advanced Details and copy the script below into User Data
  4. In Step 6: Configure Security Group add a Rule that opens port 80 for HTTP
  5. Launch your instance
  6. 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

Don't repeat yourself: Define an EC2 Launch Template

  1. In the EC2 sidenav select Launch Templates and click Create launch template
  2. Under Launch template contents select as AMI ID either Amazon Linux AMI or Amazon Linux 2 AMI (by using Search for AMI)
  3. In the same section add a Security Group that opens port 80 for HTTP
  4. Unfold Advanced details at the bottom of the screen and paste in the script above into User Data
  5. Create your launch template
  6. Launch one or multiple EC2 instances from your template
  7. Browse to your instance's public DNS

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!

Azure Container Instance

  1. Open and login (via az login) to your Azure CLI or login to the Azure Portal, open the CloudShell and then choose Bash (not PowerShell).
  2. Create a resource group by running az group create --name <group name> --location <location name, e.g. "centralus">
  3. Create a new container by running az container create --resource-group <group name> --name <container name> --image bkimminich/juice-shop --dns-name-label <dns name label> --ports 3000 --ip-address public
  4. Your container will be available at http://<dns name label>.<location name>.azurecontainer.io:3000

For more information please refer to the detailed walkthrough with screenshots by @JasonHaley. You can alternatively follow his guide to set up OWASP Juice Shop as an Azure Web App for Containers.

Node.js version compatibility

OWASP Juice Shop officially supports the following versions of node.js in line as close as possible with the official node.js LTS schedule. Docker images and packaged distributions are offered accordingly:

node.js Docker image Packaged distributions 11.x juice-shop-<version>_node11_windows_x64.zip, juice-shop-<version>_node11_linux_x64.tgz 10.x latest (current official release), snapshot (preview from develop branch) juice-shop-<version>_node10_windows_x64.zip, juice-shop-<version>_node10_linux_x64.tgz 8.x juice-shop-<version>_node8_windows_x64.zip, juice-shop-<version>_node8_linux_x64.tgz

Demo Heroku

Feel free to have a look at the latest version of OWASP Juice Shop: http://demo.owasp-juice.shop

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


Via a YAML configuration file in /config, the OWASP Juice Shop can be customized in its content and look & feel.

For detailed instructions and examples please refer to our Customization documentation.


If you want to run OWASP Juice Shop as a Capture-The-Flag event, we recommend you set it up along with a CTFd server conveniently using the official juice-shop-ctf-cli tool.

For step-by-step instructions and examples please refer to the Hosting a CTF event chapter of our companion guide ebook.

XSS Demo

To show the possible impact of XSS, you can download this docker-compose-file and run docker-compose up to start the juice-shop and the shake-logger. Assume you received and (of course) clicked this inconspicuous phishing link and login. Apart from the visual/audible effect, the attacker also installed an input logger to grab credentials! This could easily run on a 3rd party server in real life!

We recommend to use Mozilla Firefox for this demo! You can also find a recording of this attack in action on YouTube: πŸ“Ί
