The new OWASP testing Guidev3:
This document analyze the OWASP Testing Guide v2 checklist and a plan for create the new v3.


  • 1) Methodical Testing (new category) <-- (Mat) needs explanation
  • 2) Authorization testing missing. (new category)
  • 3) Information gathering is not a vulnerability
  • 4) Business logic testing
  • 5) Infrastructural test  (new category) *this has to only concentrate on 80 and 443 and other web related testing
  • 6) Web Services section needs improvement
  • 7) AJAX Testing section needs improvement
  • 8) Testing Methodology section updates (requirements, plans, levels and environments)
  • 9) New category: Client side Testing
  • 10) New category: Thick Client Testing
  • 11) New category: Flash/Silverlight Applications
  • 12) New category: Assessing Financial Applications
  • 13) New category: Fuzzing (we have the vectors, but this should explain the whole concept)

Proposed new categories for the OTG v3:

  • OTG Form Templates
    • OTG Request for Quote (RFQ) (new)
    • OTG 3rd Party Assessment Authorization Form (new)
    • OTG Sample Report (new)
  • Passive Mode
  • Information Gathering
  • Business logic testing
  • Web Application Penetration Testing
    • Infrastructural testing
    • Authentication Testing
    • Authorization Testing (new)
    • Session Management Testing
    • Data Validation Testing
    • Denial of Service Testing
    • Web Services Testing
    • Client-Side Testing
      • AJAX Testing
      • Flash Testing (new)
      • RIA stuff (new)
