OWASP Developer Guide

The OWASP Developer Guide 2014 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.

Introduction

The OWASP Developer Guide is the original OWASP project. It was first published in 2002, when Ajax was only a mote in Microsoft's eye with the new e-mail notification in Outlook Web Access (and only if you used Internet Explorer). Since then, the web has come a long way. Unfortunately, the Developer Guide never really took off with the intended audience: developers. The original Guide was more a how to perform a web application penetration test, material now better covered in the OWASP Testing Guide .

The Developer Guide 2014 is a "first principles" book - it's not specific to any one language or framework, as they all borrow ideas and syntax from each other. There are highly specific issues in different languages, such as PHP configuration settings or Spring MVC issues, but we need to look past these differences and apply the basic tenets of secure system engineering to application security.

The major themes in the Developer Guide include:

  • Foundation
  • Architecture
  • Design
  • Build
  • Configure
  • Operate

We are re-factoring the original material from the Developer Guide 2.0, released in July 2005, and bring it into the modern world, and focus it tightly on modern web apps that use Ajax and RESTful API, and of course, mobile applications. All testing material will move to the OWASP Testing Guide and all code review material to the OWASP Code Review Guide.

Intended audience

The primary audience for the new version of the Developer Guide is Architects and Developers. The Developer Guide can still be used by penetration testers who want to move up to software verification or improve their craft, but the primary focus will become how to implement secure software from first principles.

When will the new version be released?
We are hoping to have the first milestone, consisting of the Authentication, Session Management, Access Control, Input validation and output encoding, and Data Protection chapters complete by September 2014. If we get more volunteers, sooner.
I only have a few minutes per month to help! How do I get involved?
Please join the mail list, introduce yourself, go find something that needs fixing in the GitHub issue list and then fix it and mail it back to us. We'll take it from there!
I really want to help big time. How do I get involved?
Please join the mail list, introduce yourself, go find something that needs writing or missing on GitHub, write the first draft and mail it to us on the mail list. We'll take it from there!
How do I get commit privileges on GitHub?
Write something for the Guide. Rinse and repeat! :) Or provide so many fixes that we give in and let you have at it directly.

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.
