In the Honeycomb project, OWASP is assembling the most comprehensive and integrated guide ever attempted to the fundamental building blocks of application security (principles, threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures) through collaborative community efforts.

  • What we are trying to accomplish?
  • The difficulties in organizing this information
  • The approach we’ve taken
  • Why our approach solves the problems?
  • Why the name Honeycomb?

How to use the information?

Honeycomb User’s Guide

Volunteers Needed

what’s still left to do

  • Expand the stub articles (description and examples)
  • Fill in the related sections in the articles
  • Make sure that Honeycomb articles are tagged with appropriate categories
  • Eliminate redundancy
    • Merge duplicate articles on the same topic. For example, it is highly likely that a guide article, a top ten article and a vulnerability/attack article exist on a same topic.
    • Redirect well-know acronyms and case-sensitive titles to the master article. (Example, XSS to Cross Site Scripting")
    • Plan: go over by topics.
  • Go over the CLASP articles to:
    • Add the same article structure, i.e., the "Related ..." sections, to the CLASP articles;
    • Make sure they are marked with appropriate templates: vulnerability, attack, principle, etc;
    • Make sure they are tagged with appropriate categories.
  • Merge duplicate vulnerability categories. (Replace "...problem/error" with "...vulnerability" when it is appropriate.)
  • Make sure all articles that have code snippets are marked with the "Code Snippet" category and corresponding languages.

Specific tasks

  • Merge "Buffer overflow", "Buffer Overflow" and related redundant articles
  • Merge "Cross Site Scripting" and "Cross-site_scripting"
  • Merge "SQL Injection" and "SQL injection"
