The OWASP Folksonomy Approach to Organizing Application Security

There are many different ways of organizing all the different aspects of application security. Attempts to force these topics into a strict taxonomy have failed because there are too many dimensions to the problem. At OWASP, we have adopted the folksonomy tagging approach to solving this problem. We simply tag our articles with a number of different categories. You can use these category to help get different views into the complex, interconnected set of topics that is application security.

Each article is tagged with as many of the following tags as reasonably apply:

Type of Article Principle, Threat, Attack, Vulnerability, Countermeasure, Code Snippet, How To, Activity
Level of Abstraction Implementation, Design, Architecture, Business
Related Countermeasures Authentication, Session Management, Access Control, Validation, Encoding, Error Handling, Logging, Encryption, Quotas
Likelihood Factors Attractiveness, Tools Required, Expertise Required
Business Impact Factors Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability
Application Platforms Java, .NET, PHP, C/C++
Software Lifecycle Activites Planning, Requirements, Architecture, Design, Implementation, Test, Deployment, Operation, Maintenance
Application Security Activites Threat Modeling, Security Architecture, Security Requirements, Secure Coding, Penetration Testing, Code Review, Secure Deployment
Vulnerability Analysis Technique Vulnerability Scanning, Penetration Testing, Static Analysis, Code Review
Other Application Security Categories Role, Tool
