The OWASP Guide to Building Secure Web Applications v2 is now released. Its release was announced at Black Hat in Las Vegas in late July 2005. This new version of the OWASP Development Guide is a major overhaul of the original document, containing nearly three times as much material. The project is currently steered by Andrew van der Stock.

The original OWASP Development Guide had become a staple diet for many web security professionals. Since 2002, the initial version was downloaded over 2 million times. Today, the Development Guide is referenced by many leading government, financial, and corporate standards and is the Gold standard for web application security.

The Development Guide is aimed at architects, developers, consultants and auditors and is a comprehensive manual for designing, developing and deploying secure web applications.
