Featured Project

OWASP Top Ten Project

The OWASP Top Ten provides a powerful awareness document for web application security.  The OWASP Top Ten represents a broad consensus about what the most critical web application security flaws are.  Project members include a variety of security experts from around the world who have shared their expertise to produce this list.  Versions of the 2007 and 2010 version were translated into French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Turkish, and other languages.  The 2013 version has been translated to French, Chinese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and Japanese with other language translations underway.  They will be posted as they become available.

For more information, please visit the OWASP Top Ten wiki page.
