About

The OWASP PHP Technology Knowledge Base is the clearing house for all information related to building secure web applications and services based on PHP technologies. The focus of the project is on guidance for developers and application architects on using PHP and PHP frameworks. Moreover, we aim to provide security related guidance for system administrators managing PHP based applications and tools.

Community content is key to security information. The project depends on content from developers throughout the PHP ecosystem.

Purpose

  • Provide deep, rich guidance for PHP developers in using the security features of PHP and of PHP frameworks.
  • Address security in relation to PHP and derived technologies.
  • Guide system administrators in managing PHP related components and applications.
  • Create guidance for use of OWASP components that are designed for use with PHP.
  • Focus on information about working with and on OWASP tools built using PHP or other PHP technologies.
  • Provide a stream of security related information, like vulnerabilities and security patches, related to the PHP universe.
  • Build an ecosystem allowing to all actors interested to discuss, share and learn.

It is not easy to produce a PHP application without security vulnerabilities. Most application security vulnerabilities apply to PHP applications just like other environments.

The goals of this project are to provide information about building, configuring, deploying, operating, and maintaining secure PHP applications. We cover the following topics or pick a topic from the OWASP PHP Table of Contents

PHP Security for Architects
Provides information about the design and architectural considerations for a PHP web application. Common architectures such as MVC, Ajax, Web Services and PEAR / Zend Frameworks are discussed.
PHP Security for Developers
This section covers dangerous calls and common vulnerabilities associated with them, such as system() exec(), eval() and so on. This section will also cover standard security mechanisms available in the standard language, such as cryptography, logging, encryption, and error handling. Securing elements of an application, such as controllers, business logic, and persistence layers will be covered. We'll discuss handling request parameters, encoding, injection, and more.
PHP Security for Deployers
These articles cover topics specifically related to the PHP hosting environment. We discuss minimizing the attack surface, configuring error handlers, and performing hardening of PHP.
