An OWASP project is a collection of related tasks that have a defined roadmap and team members. OWASP project leaders are responsible for defining the vision, roadmap, and tasks for the project. The project leader also promotes the project and builds the team. Tools and documents are organized into the following categories:

  • PROTECT - These are tools and documents that can be used to guard against security-related design and implementation flaws.
  • DETECT - These are tools and documents that can be used to find security-related design and implementation flaws.
  • LIFE CYCLE - These are tools and documents that can be used to add security-related activities into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

If you would like to start a new project please review the How to Start an OWASP Project guide. Please contact the Global Project Committee members to discuss project ideas and how they might fit into OWASP. All OWASP projects must be free and open and have their homepage on the OWASP portal. You can read all the guidelines in the Project Assessment Criteria.

Every project has an associated mail list. You can view all the lists, examine their archives, and subscribe to any of them on the OWASP Project Mailing Lists page.

A list of Projects that have been identified as orphaned ones has been set up. Please glance at it and see you find interest in leading any of them.
