Web application security is an essential component of any successful project, whether open source PHP applications, web services such as straight through processing, or proprietary business web sites. Hosters (rightly) shun insecure code, and users shun insecure services that lead to fraud. The aim of this Development Guide is to allow businesses, developers, designers and solution architects to produce secure web applications. If done from the earliest stages, secure applications cost about the same to develop as insecure applications, but are far more cost effective in the long run.
 
  
Unlike other forms of security (such as firewalls and secure lockdowns), web applications have the ability to make a skilled attacker rich, or make the life of a victim a complete misery. At this highest level of the OSI software map, traditional firewalls and other controls simply do not help. The application itself must be self-defending. The Development Guide can help you get there. The Development Guide has been written to cover all forms of web application security issues, from old hoary chestnuts such as SQL Injection, through modern concerns such as AJAX, phishing, credit card handling, session fixation, cross-site request forgeries, compliance, and privacy issues.

The OWASP Developer Guide 2013 is a dramatic re-write of one of OWASP's first and most downloaded projects. The focus moves from countermeasures and weaknesses to secure software engineering.

In this edition, architects, project leads, and developers can reference a massive text book covering all aspects of modern application security architecture, secure design, and detailed design patterns. This edition aligns with the syllabus outcomes of the Undergraduate Software Assurance degree and Masters of Software Assurance.

Major themes:

  • Foundation Security
  • Architecture
  • Design
  • Build
  • Operate
  • Incident Response

As this book is in a constant state of flux, it can never be said to be complete, and so the current 2005 edition is the "release" edition, and the Wiki here is the draft version until further notice. Once we have adequate coverage and quality of the SwA course matrix, we will switch over even if unfinished.

Asvs-step1.jpg1. About the Development Guide

The Development Guide is aimed at architects, developers, consultants and auditors and is a comprehensive manual for designing, developing and deploying secure Web Applications and Web Services. The original OWASP Development Guide has become a staple diet for many web security professionals. Since 2002, the initial version was downloaded over 2 million times. Today, the Development Guide is referenced by many leading government, financial, and corporate standards and is the Gold standard for Web Application and Web Service security.
