OWASP Secure Headers Project
Secure Headers is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The primary contributors to date have been:
- Jim Manico
As of April 2014, the priorities are:
Secure Headers intends to raise awareness and usage of headers sent by the server that can increase security. We'll aim to bring this about by:
1. Producing open source, easily implemented, well documented code libraries that enable these headers for a variety of platforms. We'll prioritize creating and publicizing Node.JS, PHP, Ruby, and Java, but will eventually reach out towards edge cases like Go, Python and others. The key is to make this accessible as possible to developers.
2. Creating a tool that allows the public to scan websites and view stats regarding these headers. The tool will feature: automated scanning of the top 1m sites on the web; filtering of said sites to view stats across industries and countries; published database dumps for public consumption/tools; scanning of individual sites; comparing multiple scanned sites.
3. Consistent reports regarding this secure headers, their usage, any changes to existing headers.
Involvement in the development and promotion of Secure Headers is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute.
