The OWASP Security Controls in Web Application Development Lifecycle

Security needs to be embedded right from the initials to release a secure end deliverable. This project aims at delivering security controls right from the requirements,design,development,testing,release,maintenance and decommission.


Vision of this project is to demonstrate the implementation of integrating security controls in any web development lifecycle project.Every functional deliverable must be delivered in a fully secure fashion. If Security is injected right from the initials ( when the business needs arises ), cost to address the issues identified in the VAPT level will be very minimal or none. Developers,Application Security Analysts, Technical Project Managers, Pen Testers will also be able to pick up security libraries / checks to use them in their own applications and projects.

Aim of this project: To integrate security in application development lifecycle. At each and every stage of an application being developed, we will have security pushed into the process. We all know that there is a direct connection from the web application to the database. Security needs to be right at the application development end. Having security controls right from the start will ensure the application is developed in a secure fashion and methodology.

Integrating security requirements at every stage of a web application development will be imparted in this project

1)Business Requirements

2)Software Requirements Specifications

3)Software Design Specifications

a)high Level Design

b) Low Level Design

4)Software Implementation

5) Software Quality Testing

6)Software Release

7)Software Post Release
