This project's goal is to create a "best practices" web application penetration testing framework which users can implement in their own organizations and a "low level" web application penetration testing guide that describes how to find certain issues.
Version 3 of the Testing Guide was released in December 2008 after going through a major upgrade through the OWASP Summer of Code 2008.
Background and Motivation
History Behind Project The OWASP Testing guide originated in 2003 with Dan Cuthbert as one of the original editors. It was handed over to Eoin Keary in 2005 and moved onto the new OWASP wiki when it came online. Being in a wiki is easier for people to contribute and has made updating much easier. Matteo Meucci took on the Testing guide after Eoin and shepherded it through the version 2 and version 3 updates, which have been significant improvements.
