OWASP Tool Project Template

I hope this project (Risk Rating Management) can help people to learn how to assess their website

This submit by Mohammad Febri Ramadlan. Contribute to OWASP Jakarta Chapter.

The OWASP Tool Template Project is a template designed to help Project Leaders create suitable project pages for OWASP Projects. By following the instructional text in red (and then deleting it) it should be easier to understand what information OWASP and the project users are looking for. And it's easy to get started by simply creating a new project from the appropriate project template.


In security assessment particularly website security assessment, there are many methodology to assessing the website. Owasp already given a methodology for assessing website security assessment called “OWASP Risk Rating Methodology.” Also owasp give a template in excel format to calculated the risk score.But some users still do not know how to assess their/self website. Some problem are to understanding a methodology, they should understand technical also (for example: threat agent factor: skill level or vulnerability factor: ease of exploit). The second problem is when owner start assessing many website, user must copy that template (OWASP Risk Rating Methodology excel format) become many sheets/files. It is susceptive make the data/file lost.

So here, I suggest to introduce the owner/developer to assess their website using Risk Rating Management Project. Even they have many website to assess, Risk Rating Management Project can handle and record the risk score into database, so owner can assess and manage their website every time. Also owner can use this methodology in some context, for example: penetration testing project or security assessment.

The Tool Project Template is simply a sample project that was developed for instructional purposes that can be used to create default project pages for a Tool project. After copying this template to your new project, all you have to do is follow the instructions in red, replace the sample text with text suited for your project, and then delete the sections in red. Doing so should make it clearer to both consumers of this project, as well as OWASP reviewers who are trying to determine if the project can be promoted to the next category. The information requested is also intended to help Project Leaders think about the roadmap and feature priorities, and give guidance to the reviews as a result of that effort.

Creating a new set of project pages from scratch can be a challenging task. By providing a sample layout, with instructional text and examples, the OWASP Tool Project Template makes it easier for Project Leaders to create effective security projects and hence helps promote security.

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 researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator. See the Road Map and Getting Involved tab for more details.


The success of OWASP is due to a community of enthusiasts and contributors that work to make our projects great. This is also true for the success of your project. Be sure to give credit where credit is due, no matter how small! This should be a brief list of the most amazing people involved in your project. Be sure to provide a link to a complete list of all the amazing people in your project's community as well.

The OWASP Tool Project Template is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. A live update of project contributors is found here.

The first contributors to the project were:

  • Colin Watson who created the OWASP Cornucopia project that the template was derived from
  • Chuck Cooper who edited the template to convert it from a documentation project to a Tool Project Template

There are 3 goals of this project.

1st Quarter:

-Name: Beta Version

-Goal: .Application design and development of OWASP Risk Rating Management Project.

-Features: Summary (Vulnerability Assessment Ratio, Graph) Data Management (Data Categorry, Data Host)

-Metrics: Introducing OWASP Risk Rating Management Project via seminar, workshop, and conference.

2nd Quarter

-Name: v1.0

-Goal: Adding feature of OWASP Risk Rating Management Project.

-Features: Risk Rating Vector Details, Export Report (.pdf, .docx, .xlsx)

-Metrics: Uses and Implementation OWASP Risk Rating Management Project in assessing local or self website

3rd Quarter

-Name: v2.0

-Goal: Application Design and developement OWASP Risk Rating Management Project v2.0

-Features: Advanced Risk Rating Model (Adding factors, Customizing options, Weighting factors)

Secure Coding/Code Review

-Metrics: The use of standardization OWASP Risk Rating Methodology in conducting the assessment at the enterprise level company. This phase can be done after penetration testing project, internal/external security assessment.


As of November, 2013, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

  • Complete the first draft of the Tool Project Template
  • Get other people to review the Tool Project Template and provide feedback
  • Incorporate feedback into changes in the Tool Project Template
  • Finalize the Tool Project template and have it reviewed to be promoted from an Incubator Project to a Lab Project

Subsequent Releases will add

  • Internationalization Support
  • Additional Unit Tests
  • Automated Regression tests

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of Tool Project Template is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:


We could implement some of the later items on the roadmap sooner if someone wanted to help out with unit or automated regression tests


Are you fluent in another language? Can you help translate the text strings in the Tool Project Template into that language?


Do you have a flair for finding bugs in software? We want to product a high quality product, so any help with Quality Assurance would be greatly appreciated. Let us know if you can offer your help.


Please use the Tool Project Template project mailing list for feedback about:

  • What do like?
  • What don't you like?
  • What features would you like to see prioritized on the roadmap?

The Tool Project Template must specify the minimum set of tabs a project should have, provide some an example layout on each tab, provide instructional text on how a project leader should modify the tab, and give some example text that illustrates how to create an actual project.

It would also be ideal if the sample text was translated into different languages.

Addtional Instructions for making changes:

The About 'tab' on that page is done with a MediaWiki template. If you log into the wiki page for your project and click the "Edit" button/link/tab in the top-right between 'Read' and 'View History', you'll see the edit page for the main body of your project page.

If you scroll down below the form to edit that page (below the "Save page", "Show preview", "Show changes" buttons, you'll see some text with a triangle in front of it reading "Templates used on this page:" A list will expand if you click on the triangle/text to show the templates that make up this page. The one you want is the "Projects/OWASP Example Project About Page" - click the (edit) next to this to edit that template. The direct link is:

The template takes 'input' that are key/value pairs where you'll need to edit the stuff after the equals (=) like: project_name =Place your project name here.

You'd edit the bold bit.
