The OWASP Product Requirement Recommendations Library

The OWASP Product Requirement Recommendations Library (PRRL) is a list of best practice recommended security product requirements that can be easily used for new web application definition and User Acceptance Testing (UAT) criteria.


The objectives of OWASP PRRL are to:

  • Improve end-product security design
  • Enable efficient application security consideration and definition in early PDLC phases Scoping and Design.
    • Reduce time and resource needs for project AppSec requirements discovery and definitions
  • Improve application development and testing estimations for security best practice and regulatory compliance
  • Establish an industry recognized best practice benchmark standard that can be used evaluate application security designs
  • Make OWASP recommendations more accessible to business/non-technical stakeholders

How can I participate in your project?

All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for contributors who are interested in researching and writing product requirements based on international security standards and legal and regulatory requirements (personal data protection, PCI, HIPAA, etc.).


The OWASP Product Requirements Recommendations Library project is a new project to be developed by a pioneering worldwide team of volunteers.
