The goal of the OWASP AJAX Security project is to dentify and document security issues encountered by AJAX applications and document ways to secure these applications. The OWASP AJAX Security project is being lead by Anurag Agarwal.

Project Roadmap

1. Gather existing presentations and pull ideas into OWASP
2. Review AJAX frameworks and identify security issues handled by these frameworks
3. Review AJAX related literature (books, articles, ...)
4. Document ways to secure AJAX applications

The framework we are currently reviewing is the Google Web Toolkit[[1]]. If you have experience using GWT and/or are interested in participating in this review please contact us either though the mailing list or emailing anurag.agarwal[at]
