The .NET ESAPI project brings the Java-based ESAPI Project to the .NET platform.

Project Goals

The goal of the project is to maintain an API and reference library for ASP.NET developers who want to create secure applications. While this is a complete translation of the API, there are some minor differences between the original ESAPI and the .NET ESAPI.

Working with the .NET ESAPI

The code for the ESAPI is currently in Google Code.

Download the latest .NET ESAPI library binary from Google Code here.

Download the latest .NET ESAPI documentation from Google Code here. It is a zipped .chm (help) file.

To download and work with the source you must use an SVN tool.

AnkhSVN is a free SVN tool that integrates with Visual Studio.

You can also browse the source.


The project lead is Alex Smolen.
