Name: OWASP Secure Coding Practices - Quick Reference Guide (home page)
Purpose: This document provides a quick high level reference for secure coding practices. It is technology agnostic and defines a set of general software security coding practices, in a checklist format, that can be integrated into the development lifecycle. Implementation of these practices will mitigate most common software vulnerabilities.

current release
SCP v2 - 8 November 2010 - (download)
Release description:
  • Sections of the guide were re-ordered, renamed and new sections were added to map more closely to the ASVS. However input and output handling was left at the beginning, as apposed to be lower in the list as it is with ASVS, since this is the source of the most common vulnerabilities and ones that effect even very simple applications.
  • Entirely new sections include:
    • Cryptographic Practices,
    • Error Handling and Logging".
  • The guide's "Data Validation" section was split to match ASVS and is now represented as two separate sections "Input Validation" and "Output Encoding",
  • The guide's "Authorization and Access Management" section was renamed to Access Control,
  • The guide's "Sensitive Information Storage or Transmission" section was split to match ASVS and is now two new sections "Data Protection" and "Communication Security",
  • Additional practices were added to most sections to account for requirements in ASVS that the guide did not specifically cover and some rewording of existing practices was also done.
  • Additional terms were added to the glossary.
  • Several improvements were made thanks to new contributors.

SCP v1.1 - 8 September 2010 - (download)
Release description: The Secure Coding Practices Quick Reference Guide is a technology agnostic set of general software security coding practices, in a comprehensive checklist format, that can be integrated into the development lifecycle. At only 17 pages long, it is easy to read and digest. This release is the result of the changes introduced in the previous version (SCP v1) which were the consequence of the assessment process it was submitted to.
