OWASP Guide Project
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.
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.
Let's talk here
Further development of the Development Guide occurs through mailing list discussions and occasional workshops, and suggestions for improvement are welcome. For more information, please contact us.

Got Translation Cycles?
The Development Guide project is always on the lookout for volunteers who are interested in translating the Development Guide into another language.
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.
