OWASP Security Frameworks

The OWASP Security Frameworks Project is a series of design patterns that can be used by language designers and architects to create secure frameworks for developers, thereby relieving developers of the work of implementing security themselves.

Introduction

Providing a secure environment to a developer will lead to a more secure final product. Developers need to work in an environment which is secure by default and which relieves them of the burden of implementing their own security controls. That task often falls to the developers who create languages, or enterprise architects. We aim to create a library of design patterns and instructions that should be implemented by architects to create secure languages and environments for developers.

Description

The project aims to provide language independent advice targeted at enterprise architects and people who design programming languages. The intent is to make security functionality a part of the framework that a developer builds upon, so that the developer doesn't have to implement their own security functions. The ultimate goal is to have as much security as possible built into the programming environment so that developer mistakes and omissions are less likely to lead to security vulnerabilities.

Volunteers

The OWASP security frameworks project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The primary contributors to date have been:

  • Ari Elias-Bachrach
  • Mike McCabe
  • Ken Johnson

Others

  • your name here, just volunteer :-)

As of February 2014, the priorities are:

The plan is to develop a series of documents that cover the various features an architecture should provide. We'll have a document on XSS prevention, database access, authentication, CSRF prevention, etc. Each one will contain the design patterns that should be implemented in order to provide those functions in a secure manner. They'll each be free standing documents which can eventually be combined together into one large pdf or book when we're "done".

Involvement in the development and promotion of this project is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute. Some of the ways you can help:

  • volunteer to write (or help write) a design pattern document
