Application Security How To Articles

This category is for articles describing how to perform a specific activity that contributes to application security. For example, "How to test session identifier strength using WebScarab". Articles should be titled with a specific title starting with "How to". Articles can focus in on a specific topic or be an overview article that references lots of smaller steps. Long articles should be broken into a set of smaller steps with an overview article.

The OWASP Guides

There are three different OWASP Guides. They are full of useful information about how to perform application security activities.

The OWASP Guide to Building Secure Web Applications and Web Services
The OWASP Guide has hundreds of articles about all the major security issues you'll encounter when designing or building a secure web application or web service.
The OWASP Testing Guide
The OWASP Testing Guide has articles specifically about performing security penetration testing on web applications and web services.
The OWASP Code Review Guide
The OWASP Code review guide covers all the same vulnerabilities and security mechanisms as the testing guide, but provides guidance on finding the problems in the source code.
