OWASP believe that clearly articulating project-agnostic web application security requirements—providing both high-level/general and low-level/specific sine quibus non—is the best way to ensure that software is developed with strong, robust, yet workable security guidance.

  • The intent of this project is to assemble a useful base of generic/common web application security requirements that could be used in most projects.
  • The product of this project is intended to help all involved in web application security, whether it is project management, risk assessment, software development, testing, etc.
  • The reason d'etre of this project is that, whilst security requirements are sometimes well captured and clearly defined, there are other times when they are not, for any number of reasons.
