How to add a new article
If you think OWASP should have an article on a particular topic, you can either create a stub or a full article.
You should always search to see if an article matching your topic already exists. If not, then you can create your new article by entering the title on the URL like this:
www.owasp.org/index.php?title=New article title here
Please choose a descriptive title for your article that matches other articles in the appropriate OWASP categories. Your title should start with a capital letter, with the rest lowercase.
For more information on starting an article, please refer to the structure described in thestub article.
Application Security How-To Articles
This category is for articles describing how to perform a specific activity that contributes to application security. For example, "How to test session identifier strength using WebScarab." Articles should be titled with a specific title starting with "How To." Articles can focus in on a specific topic or be an overview article that references lots of smaller steps. Long articles should be broken into a set of smaller steps with an overview article.
The OWASP Guides
There are three different OWASP Guides. They are full of useful information about how to perform application security activities.

- This OWASP Guide has articles specifically about performing security penetration testing on web applications and web services.
- The OWASP Code Review Guide
