Planning the new OWASP Testing Guide v3

3rd October 2007: Startup v3
The OWASP Testing Guide v2 was a great success, with thousand download and many many Companies that have adopted it as standard for a Web Application Penetration Testing.
Now we would like to begin a new project that is based on v2 but improve it and complete it.

In the OWASP Testing Guide v2 we have split the set of tests in 8 sub-categories:

  • Information Gathering
  • Business logic testing
  • Authentication Testing
  • Session Management Testing
  • Data Validation Testing
  • Denial of Service Testing
  • Web Services Testing
  • AJAX Testing


Information Gathering

v2:
Application Fingerprint
Application Discovery
Spidering and googling
Collection of error code
SSL/TLS Testing
DB Listener Testing
File extensions handling
Old, backup and unreferenced files
