OWASP Code Review Guide Project

OWASP Books logo.png This project has produced a book that can be downloaded or purchased.
Feel free to browse the full catalog of available OWASP books.


We are writing a new version of the OWASP code review guide.

Here is the OWASP Code review V2 Table of Contents.


The code review guide is currently at release version 1.1 and the second best selling OWASP book in 2008. Many positive comments have been feedback regarding this initial version and believe it’s a key enabler for the OWASP fight against software insecurity. It has even inspired individuals to build tools based on its information. The combination of a book on secure code review and tools to support such an activity is very powerful as it gives the developer community a place to start regarding secure application development. Going forward I hope to further integrate with the ASVS and other guides such as the testing and ASDR guides shall be perfromed for version 2.0.t

The OWASP Code Review project was conceived by Eoin Keary, the OWASP Ireland Founder and Chapter Lead. We are actively seeking individuals to add new sections as new web technologies emerge. If you are interested in volunteering for the project, or have a comment, question, or suggestion, please drop me a line eoin.keary@owasp.org.

The project's overall goal is to...

be a reference document for the purpose of performing code review. This project shall provide examples in the most common web application development languages (Java and C# .NET)

In the near term, we are focused on the following tactical goals...

1. Looking at each attack type and examine the anti-pattern associated with the vulnerability which makes the attack possible. This shall include code examples to guide a reviewer on what to look for.

2. Looking at the code review process, how it is managed and challanges one may encounter when performing code review in the "real world".

3. Looking at the code review tools available and discussing the benefits and issues of using tools.

4. See also Code Review Guide V2.0's Roadmap.

Roadmap for V2:

  • Major enhancements:
    • Introduction to be re-written,
    • Approach to code review (Risk based approach)to be re-written, re designed,
    • Examples by Vulnerability and Technical control to be expanded and refined,
    • Common Numbering nomenclature to be used,
    • Cross reference to TG and ASVS to be done,
    • New sections on tools to be introduced,
    • Expand technology specific sections,
    • Section on RIA (Rich Internet applications) to be introduced,
    • WebServices section to be refined,
    • Malware and rootkit sections to be introduced,
    • PCI section to be rewritten with more x-reference to other guides.
  • Other ideas:
    • ESAPI section: how to review OWASP ESAPI implementations?
    • Risk based approach Vs ASVS levels,
    • Threat modeling and Triage chapters to be revised,
    • OWASP O2 section on O2 rules definition, development,
    • Crawling code: Additional search vectors to be added,
    • Section on Code Crawler, quick start & configuration guide.

Get Involved

All of the OWASP Guides are living documents that will continue to change as the threat and security landscape changes.
