An OWASP project is a collection of related tasks that have a defined roadmap and team members. OWASP project leaders are responsible for defining the vision, roadmap, and tasks for the project. The project leader also promotes the project and builds the team. OWASP currently has over 120 active projects, and new project proposal applications are submitted every week. This is one of the most popular divisions of OWASP as it gives members an opportunity to freely test theories and ideas with the professional advice and support of the OWASP community.

All OWASP tools, document, and code library projects are organized into the following categories:

  • PROTECT - These are tools and documents that can be used to guard against security-related design and implementation flaws.
  • DETECT - These are tools and documents that can be used to find security-related design and implementation flaws.
  • LIFE CYCLE - These are tools and documents that can be used to add security-related activities into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

Every project has an associated mail list. You can view all the lists, examine their archives, and subscribe to any project by visiting the OWASP Project Mailing Lists page.

A summary of recent project announcements is available on the OWASP Updates page.

Who Should Start an OWASP Project:

  • Application Developers
  • Software Architects
  • Information Security Authors
  • Those who would like the support of a community to develop or test an idea
  • Anyone wishing to take advantage of the professional body of knowledge OWASP has to offer

So you want to start a project...

Starting an OWASP Project is easy. You don't have to be an application security expert. You just have to have the drive and desire to make a contribution to the application security community.

Here are some of the guidelines for running a successful OWASP project:

  • The best OWASP projects are strategic - they make it easier to produce secure applications by filling a gap in the application security knowledge-base or technology support.
  • You can run a single person project, but it's usually best to get the community involved. You should be prepared to support a mailing list, build a team, speak at conferences, and promote your project.
  • You can contribute existing documents or tools to OWASP! Assuming you have the intellectual property rights to a work, you can open it to the world as an OWASP Project. Please coordinate this with OWASP by contacting owasp(at)owasp.org.
  • Available Grants to consider if you need funding - Click Here
  • You should promote your project through the OWASP channels as well as by outside means. Get people to blog about it!

Creating a new project

Here's the simple process for starting a new OWASP Project.

  • Get the following information together:


  1. Project Name,
  2. Project purpose / overview,
  3. Project Roadmap,
  4. Project links (if any) to external sites,
  5. Project License,
  6. Project Leader name,
  7. Project Leader email address,
  8. Project Leader wiki account - the username (you'll need this to edit the wiki),
  9. Project Contributor(s) (if any) - name email and wiki account (if any),
  10. Project Main Links (if any).

OWASP Recommended Licenses

Why are you recommending these licenses?
Which other open source licenses are eligible for an OWASP project?

Choosing a license under which an artifact is distributed and enforcing the license are prerogatives of the copyright holders over that artifact. By default, each contributor is copyright holder over the contributed piece. Contributors must all agree on the license and cooperate in enforcing it or must assign their copyright to the entity which becomes responsible for choosing and enforcing the license.

OWASP is a collaborative initiative for the public good and most of its output is expected to be functional, rather than aesthetic. The problem OWASP tackles is so large that OWASP acknowledges a need to collaborate with the commercial world. Therefore, in order to become an OWASP Sponsored Project, you should be comfortable with:

  • Allowing arbitrary uses for your work, for example for commercial purposes. (If you disagree, consider using CC-BY-NC.)
  • Revealing to the world your project's source code (its form preferred for modification).
  • Allowing your work, under certain conditions (see below), to be modified by others and redistributed. (If you disagree, consider using CC-BY-ND.)
How to choose a license for artifcts of your OWASP project
Artifact Under what conditions can your work be modified and redistributed?
As long as modifications are licensed in the same spirit If credit is appropriately given to you Under any circumstances
Standalone Tool Run locally
GPL (newest version as of 2016 is 3.0)

The "General Public License" protects users' four essential freedoms, among other things by requiring someone who distributes software derived from yours to also publish the source code for the modifications. Anyone can charge money for distributing copies of the software, but cannot prevent its recipients from redistributing it for free. The GPL allows the copyright holders to distribute the software under additional licenses, too, which can be a way to make it proprietary-friendly.
Apache License (newest version as of 2016 is 2.0)

Has the fewest restrictions, even allowing proprietary modifications and proprietary forks of your project, and is more up-to-date than the BSD license.
CC0 (newest version as of 2016 is 1.0)

The "Public Domain Dedication" means that anybody can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission.
Consumed over the network
AGPL (newest version as of 2016 is 3.0)

The "Affero General Public License" extends the GPL to SaaS: users of the modified software must be able to obtain the source code of the modifications.
GPL or LGPL (newest version as of 2016 is 3.0)

The "Lesser General Public License" relaxes the GPL for libraries: if the library is not modified, just integrated (function calls, global variables,...), with other software, it does not require the source code of the other software to be published. The Free Software Foundation recommends the LGPL only for libraries which have established competitors for the same functionality, otherwise they recommend the full GPL.
Document (includes E-Learning, presentations, books etc.)
CC-BY-SA (newest version as of 2016 is 4.0)

The "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike" is like the GPL, but for documents.
CC-BY (newest version as of 2016 is 4.0)

The "Creative Commons Attribution" is like the Apache License, but for documents.

Project Release

  • As your project reaches a point that you'd like OWASP to assist in its promotion, the OWASP Global Projects Committee will need the following to help spread the word about your project:
  1. Conference style presentation that describes the tool/document in at least 3 slides,
  2. Project Flyer/Pamphlet (PDF file),

  • If possible, get also the following information together:


  1. Release Name,
  2. Release Description,
  3. Release Downloadable file link
  4. Release Leader,
  5. Release Contributor(s),
  6. Release Reviewer,
  7. Release Sponsor(s) (if any),
  8. Release Notes
  9. Release Main Links (if any),

  • Note: For Project/Release Leader, Contributors and Reviewers please create a wiki accounts and please send the links off. See Tutorial and here how to do it and here an example of how it will be used.

  • To get your project started, fill out the new project form. We'll review the information and get you set up with a project wiki page, a mailing list, and subscribe you to the OWASP-Leaders list. You'll be part of setting OWASP's direction!

Project Processes

These forms were created to help project leaders, and those interested in a going through a process in the OWASP projects infrastrucutre. They faciliate the management of each query based on the specific task an applicant will need help with. The forms are described below, and they are linked with their designated online application form.

  • Project Transition Application:The OWASP project transition form gives current project leaders an easy way of handing over project administration information to individuals wishing to take over a project.
  • Project Review Application:This form is for current project leaders to request a review of their project based on OWASP graduation criteria. The aim is to designate an OWASP volunteer to review these projects within 3 months time.
  • Project Donation Application:This form is for projects outside of the OWASP project infrastructure. Project Leaders for these open source projects can choose to partner or give their project to OWASP directly through this form.
  • Project Abandonment Request:The OWASP project abandonment form gives current project leaders an easy way of letting the OWASP Foundation know that they wish to resign their project leader duties. This form should be used when no replacement project leader exists to take over these duties.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the
OWASP Project Manager, Samantha Groves.

OWASP Project Lifecycle

The OWASP Projects Lifecycle represents a balance between keeping a very loose structure around OWASP projects, and ensuring that OWASP consumers are not confused about a project’s maturity and quality.

The lifecycle stage allows consumers to easily identify mature projects, and projects that are proofs of concept, experimental, and classified as prototypes in their current state. The greater the maturity of the project, the greater the level of responsibility for the project leader. These responsibilities are not trivial as OWASP provides incentives and benefits (Section 7) for projects who take on these added responsibilities.

The OWASP Project Lifecycle is broken down into the following stages:

Incubator Projects: OWASP Incubator projects represent the experimental playground where projects are still being designed, ideas are still being proven, and development is still underway. The “OWASP Incubator” label allows OWASP consumers to readily identify a project’s maturity; morevoer, the label allows project leaders to leverage the OWASP name while their project is still maturing.

OWASP Incubator projects are given a place on the OWASP Projects Portal to leverage the organisation’s infrastructure, and establish their presence and project history.

Labs Projects: OWASP Labs projects represent projects that have produced a deliverable of significant value. Leaders of OWASP Labs projects are expected to stand behind the quality of their projects as these projects have matured to the point where they are accepted by a significant portion of the OWASP community. While these projects are typically not production ready, the OWASP community expects that an OWASP Labs project leader is producing releases that are ready for mainstream usage.

OWASP Labs Projects are meant to be the collection of established projects that have gained community support and acclaim by undergoing the project review process.

OWASP Project Stage Benefits

This section outlines the benefits of starting an OWASP project, and the benefits of being at each different stage in the projects lifecycle. In my short time here at OWASP as the PM, I have had several potential project leaders ask me what the benefits are of starting their project with OWASP. Below is my proposal for each Stage’s benefits.


  • Financial Donation Management Assistance
  • Project Review Support
  • WASPY Awards Nominations
  • OWASP OSS and OPT Participation
  • Opportunity to submit proposal: $500 for Development.
  • Community Engagement and Support
  • Recognition and visibility of being associated with the OWASP Brand.


  • All benefits given to Incubator Projects
  • Technical Writing Support
  • Graphic Design Support
  • Project Promotion Support
  • OWASP OSS and OPT: Preference


  • All benefits given to Incubator & Labs Projects
  • Grant finding and proposal writing help
  • Yearly marketing plan development
  • OWASP OSS and OPT participation preference

For more detailed information on OWASP Project Stage Benefits, please see the 2013 Project Handbook.

OWASP Project Graduation

The Project Graduation Process is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Incubator Graduation Form. The purpose of this process is to move a project from the OWASP Incubator into the OWASP Labs. In order to be considered for OWASP Labs, an Incubator project must have submitted an OWASP reviewed deliverable, and obtained at least two (2) positive responses for each of the core criteria project health questions.

The review centers around the following core questions. Each core question has three (3) specific questions made up of binary queries. A project must receive at least two (2) positive responses from each reviewer in two of the binary questions, to warrant a postive response for the core question. Each core question must recieve a positive response from both project reviewers to pass the Project Health Assessment for Incubator Projects.

OWASP Project Health Assessment

The Project Health Assessment is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader when he/she applies for Project Graduation The purpose of this assessment is to determine whether a project meets the minimum criteria of an OWASP Project outlined in the Project Health Assessment Criteria Document. If a project passes the assessment, it then becomes eligible to graduate into the OWASP Labs Project stage. In order to be considered for OWASP Labs, an Incubator project must have submitted an OWASP reviewed deliverable, and obtained at least two (2) positive responses for each of the core criteria project health questions.

OWASP Project Deliverable/Release Assessment

The Project Deliverable/Release Review is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Project Deliverable Review Form. The purpose of this process is to review a project’s progress, and to make sure the project is heading in the right direction based on the roadmap they provided at project inception.

Reviews must be performed by two (2) OWASP Chapter or Project Leaders, and their review must answer affirmatively to at least the first two (2) core Project Deliverable/Release Review questions. A project must pass the OWASP Project Deliverable/Release Assessment in order to graduate into the OWASP Labs Project stage.

Active Projects

Flagship Projects

The OWASP Flagship designation is given to projects that have demonstrated superior maturity, established quality, and strategic value to OWASP and application security as a whole. OWASP Flagship projects represent projects that are not only mature, but are also projects that OWASP as an organization provides direct support to maintaining.




Lab Projects

OWASP Labs projects represent projects that have produced a deliverable of value. While these projects are typically not production ready, the OWASP community expects that an OWASP Labs project leader is producing releases that are at least ready for mainstream usage.



Incubator Projects

OWASP Incubator projects represent the experimental playground where projects are still being fleshed out, ideas are still being proven, and development is still underway. The “OWASP Incubator” label allows OWASP consumers to readily identify a project’s maturity. The label also allows project leaders to leverage the OWASP name while their project is still maturing.





Inactive Projects

Archived Projects

OWASP Archived Projects are inactive Labs projects. If you are interested in pursuing any of the projects below, please contact us and let us know of your interest.


OWASP stands for informed security decisions based on a solid, comprehensive understanding of the business risk associated with an application. OWASP's philosophy is that achieving security involves all parts of an organization, including people, process, and technology. We support the use of our brand consistent with this philosophy. However, we cannot allow the use of our brand when it implies something inconsistent with OWASP's comprehensive and balanced approach to application security. Therefore, we have defined these brand usage rules to clarify appropriate and inappropriate uses of the OWASP brand, including our name, domain, logos, project names, and other trademarks.

Brand Usage Rules

The following rules make reference to all OWASP marketing and graphic materials. This refers to any tools, documentation, or other content from OWASP. The rules also make reference to "OWASP Published Standards" which are currently in the process of being developed and released. Currently there are no OWASP Published Standards.

  1. The OWASP Brand may be used to direct people to the OWASP website for information about application security.
  2. The OWASP Brand may be used in commentary about the materials found on the OWASP website.
  3. The OWASP Brand may be used by OWASP Members in good standing to promote a person or company's involvement in OWASP.
  4. The OWASP Brand may be used in association with an application security assessment only if a complete and detailed methodology, sufficient to reproduce the results, is disclosed.
  5. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that The OWASP Foundation supports, advocates, or recommends any particular product or technology.
  6. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology is compliant with any OWASP Materials other than an OWASP Published Standard.
  7. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology can enable compliance with any OWASP Materials other than an OWASP Published Standard.
  8. The OWASP Brand must not be used in any materials that could mislead readers by narrowly interpreting a broad application security category. For example, a vendor product that can find or protect against forced browsing must not claim that they address all of the access control category.
  9. The OWASP Brand may be used by special arrangement with The OWASP Foundation.
