ASP.NET MVC Boilerplate Project

The default ASP.NET MVC project template uses insecure defaults and omits many security features altogether. ASP.NET MVC Boilerplate is a Visual Studio project template that enables security features by default and adds liberal comments and links to further resources to help developers (Who often do not have a lot of knowledge on the subject) get started.

A professional ASP.NET MVC template for building secure, fast, robust and adaptable web applications or sites. It provides the minimum amount of code required on top of the default MVC template provided by Microsoft to provide security by default. Preview%20Image.png

Project Resources

  • GitHub Project Home Page where you can view source code, log issues and view the change log.
  • Visual Studio Gallery where you can install the project template, rate/review it.
  • My blog where I post articles detailing features of the project. The project template itself links to many of the articles so that developers can get detailed information if they need it.

News and Events

Read all of the blog articles about this project here.


As ASP.NET MVC evolves and many of the JavaScript libraries release new updates, this project template needs constant updates. It is intended that this project template remain as current as possible. I would like to add more security features to the site template and add more documentation and helper comments.
