Google has released Ratproxy for free under an Apache 2.0 software license. Ratproxy is one of its internal tools used for testing the security of Web-based applications, which looks for a variety of coding problems in Web applications, such as errors that could allow a cross-site scripting attack or cause caching problems.

“We decided to make this tool freely available as open source because we feel it will be a valuable contribution to the information security community, helping advance the community's understanding of security challenges associated with contemporary web technologies,” wrote Google's Michal Zalewski on a company security blog.
