OWASP Security JDIs Project
The aim of this project is to build up a collection of practical solutions to specific security problems.
Rather than give explanations of security issues and defensive techniques - something which is done by Cheat Sheets and HOWTOs - the JDIs will consist of detailed, explicit instructions addressing specific issues using specific technology.
Like recipes, a JDI may suit some tastes more than others and, again like recipes, there can be more than one JDI for the same problem.
The benefits will be
- practical, if limited, solutions for developers without them first having to become an expert in the problem space - something which time often does not permit
- usable code which can be a practical introduction to defensive technologies, such as ESAPI, AntiSamy, etc.
The project will
- endeavour to source a suitable solutions to specific, practical problems on request, and
- adopt solutions already developed by developers and/or security specialists which they would like to share.
