OWASP ISO IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project
OWASP ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project
OWASP ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project is an effort to do the conversion of OWASP related documentations and best practices, such as the OWASP Top 10, in Application Security Controls (ASCs) as defined in ISO/IEC 27034. This will enable 27034 stakeholders to use formal structure of OWASP content.
Introduction to ISO/IEC 27034
ISO/IEC 27034 offers guidance on information security to those specifying, designing/programming or procuring, implementing and using application systems, in other words business and IT managers, developers and auditors, and ultimately the end-users of application systems. The aim is to ensure that computer applications deliver the desired/necessary level of security in support of the organization’s Information Security Management System.
It is aimed at architects, analysts, programmers, testers, IT Team, DBA, Admins, etc., who need to know what and when Application Security Controls should be applied, integrate Application Security Controls in their activities, meet the requirements of the Application Security Controls associated measurements, get access to tools and best practices and facilitate peer review.
It can also be used by auditors, in order to know the scope and process of verification measurements for the corresponding Application Security Controls, make audit results repeatable, identify a list of verification measurements which can generate supporting evidence to demonstrate that the application has reached the required level of trust authorized by the management and standardize the application security verification.
27034 is based upon the following key principles:
Description of the OWASP project
ISO/IEC 27034 do not propose any Application Security Controls by itself, nor any coding/testing best practices. OWASP is a good match to 27034 because it is proposing many best practices and technical details that can be used to create ASCs.
At the beginning of our roadmap, the focus will be upon the conversion of the latest OWASP Top 10 into ASCs.

News and Events
- Is this a contribution on the ISO/IEC standard?
- Not at all. It is using the standard in order to make available OWASP content in a formal format and logically compatible way with 27034.
- As OWASP members, can we get access to the standard for free?
- No, but the team is there to support anyone who wants to contribute by giving their insight about the standard. Note that no OWASP content will be directly refered in the standard, it's really at an implementation level that this project applies.
OWASP ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Controls project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The primary contributors to date have been:
- Bruno Guay
- Daniel Sinnig
- Luc Poulin
- Jonathan Marcil
- OWASP Montreal
1. Kick-start at OWASP Montreal in order to find contributors (already in progress).
2. Starts with the OWASP Top 10 2013 and chose some number of the Top 10 and work on them.
3. Provide a platform and a review team in order to support various contributions.
4. Release work in progress conversion of Top 10.
5. Have French, English and Spanish versions of the ASCs.
6. Finish the Top 10 2013 conversion to 27034 and final release.
7. Look for others projects that could be converted.
Involvement in the development and promotion of OWASP ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project is actively encouraged!
Some of the ways you can help:
- Give your opinion on how we should implement controls
- Use the ASCs in order to implements OWASP best practices and give feedback
- Participate in the elaboration of ASCs
