OWASP .NET Project

The OWASP.NET Project is the clearinghouse for all information related to building secure .NET web applications and services. The goal of the project is to provide deep content for all roles related to .NET web applications and services including:

  • Architectural guidance,
  • Developer tools, information and checklists,
  • IT professional content (for those that deploy and maintain .NET websites),
  • Penetration testing resources,
  • Incident response resources.

The OWASP .NET Project Leader will actively recruit .NET contributors, including personnel from Microsoft, but others throughout the .NET ecosystem. Including experts from communities from large companies to ISVs, from enterprise architects to ALT.NET developers will be important for the overall reach of the OWASP .NET project. Other communities to consider include developers who use Mono (.NET for Linux), including Moonlight (Silverlight for Linux). The OWASP .NET Project Leader will actively contribute to the OWASP projects that require .NET resources, by recruiting resources or contributing to the project.

  • To provide a comprehensive collection of security resources for all roles involved with designing, developing and maintaining .NET web applications and services.
  • To organize content specific to OWASP projects that can be used or referenced for .NET security.
  • To reach out and bring in content from the open source community to protect users of .NET web applications and services.

Why are there so many empty projects?
Because YOU haven't worked on them! We need your help!

The OWASP .NET project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The original primary contributor is Daniel Brzozowski. Currently the team of advisers includes:

  • Jeff Knutson
  • Robert Ginsburg
  • Kyle Johnson
  • Troy Hunt
  • Dinis Cruz
  • Shamir Charania
  • Mohammed Al-Taweel

As of the project reboot, the priorities are:

  • Gathering a team
  • Properly labeling all .NET related resources
  • Gather online resources and bring them under the OWASP banner
