The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501c3 not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license.
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. Tools and documents 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).
If you would like to start a new project please review the How to Start an OWASP Project guide. Please contact the Global Project Committee members to discuss project ideas and how they might fit into OWASP. All OWASP projects must be free and open and have their homepage on the OWASP portal. You can read all the guidelines in the Project Assessment Criteria.
