OWASP Secure Software Development Lifecycle Project
OWASP Secure Software Development Lifecycle Project(S-SDLC)
OWASP Secure Software Development Life Cycle Project(S-SDLC) is an overall security software methodology for Web and APP developers.
Software security has now become a wider concept other than network security. There is a developing common sense that creating secured enough software is not just about individual skills but also or even more on work flows-- Software Development Life Cycle. To achieve security requires to be involved in every phase of a Secure Software Development Life Cycle.
The project’s final goal is to help users to reduce security issues, and raise the overall security level from every stage by using the methodology.
OWASP Secure Software Development Life Cycle Project(S-SDLC) defines security software development process as well as guides, tools, checklists and templates of activities in each phase.
The delivery will contain(not final):
• Introduction: S-SDLC frame
• Training guideline: Providing Security Training System
• Requirements Phase: Risk Evaluation Guideline, and Requirements Criteria Doc.
• Design Phase: Security Design Review Guideline and Threat Modeling Guideline.
• Implement Phase: Security Coding Guide(C/C++、JAVA、PHP，C#)
• Validation Phase: Actives level, Security Testing Guideline
• Release/maintenance Phase: Vulnerability Management and Incident Response Guideline

The OWASP Secure Software Development Lifecycle Project are free to use. In fact it is encouraged!!! Additionally, I also encourage you to contribute back to the project. I have no monopoly on this knowledge; however, we all have pieces of this knowledge from our experience. Let's begin by putting our individual pieces together to make something great. Great things happen when people work together.

What is OWASP Security Principles Project?
OWASP Secure Software Development Life Cycle Project is an overall security software methodology for Web and APP developers.
The project’s goal is to help users to reduce security issues, and raise the overall security level from every stage by using the methodology.
The OWASP Secure Software Development Lifecycle Project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. A live update of project contributors is found here.
The first contributors to the project were:

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.
Base on the current estimation, the roadmap of the OWASP Secure Software Development Life Cycle Project is below:
|Sub-Project Name||Purpose||RoadMap||Sub-Porject Owner and Participant||Output and Delivery||Ref|
|OWASP S-SDLC Project||OWASP Secure Software Development Life Cycle Project defines security software development process. This part of the project is an overview of the life cycle.||2017Q3||Project Owner：
|OWASP S-SDLC Project Introduction Doc and Slides|
|OWASP S-SDLC Overall Flow||This part of the OWASP S-SDLC Project defines phases of the life cycle and give suggestions and best practices of adoption.||2017Q2-Q4||Lingzhi Gu
|Best Practices of S-SDLC in Enterprises|
|OWASP S-SDLC Security Awareness Training||This part provides guidelines of security awareness trainings. These trainings are to enhance the sensitivity of security of software developers.||2017Q2-Q4||Jie Wang||(1)Training slides
(3)Examples of examination questions
|(1)OWASP TOP 10
(2)OWASP MOBILE TOP 10
(3)OWASP IoT TOP 10
|OWASP S-SDLC Security Requirement||This part of OWASP S-SDLC aims to acquire security requirements by identifying the functional implementation, position in industry or general security requirements (eg, compliance requirements).||2017Q2-Q4||Silver Zhang||(1)Best Practices of S-SDLC Security Requirement
(2)Security Requirement Checklist
|OWASP Cheat Sheet Series|
|OWASP S-SDLC Security Design||This part of S-SDLC will guide to deliver a doable security design to the implementation team by considering potential technical security risks. So that by avoiding the early detections of security risks, the cost to build secure products is in control.||2017Q2-Q4||Lance Li||(1)Best Practices of S-SDLC Security Design
(2)Benchmark of OWASP security baseline
(3)Threat Modeling Guide
(4)Security Guideline for Common Components
|(1)Application Threat Modeling
|OWASP S-SDLC Security Implementation||The goal of this sub-project of OWASP S-SDLC are to:
(1) Let implementation teams do secure coding. The key is to let team understand security features of the language and framework they use, and obey the output of the S-SDLC security design
(2) Let implementation teams identify and fix defects in legacy codes. The key is to adopt automated, efficient tech (eg. IAST) by providing guidelines and best practices.

|OWASP S-SDLC Security Test||Security testing is a process intended to reveal flaws in the security mechanisms of an information system that protect data and maintain functionality as intended
Typical security requirements may include specific elements of confidentiality, integrity, authentication, availability, authorization and non-repudiation. Actual security requirements tested depend on the security requirements implemented by the system. Due to the logical limitations of security testing, passing security testing is not an indication that no flaws exist or that the system adequately satisfies the security requirements.
This part of the OWASP S-SDLC project will provide some best practice and useful tips of security testing to help a.) Beginners can start security test easily; b.) Professionals can use for reference.

|OWASP S-SDLC Security Deployment & SecDevOps||In this phase of the S-SDLC focus on security auditing before deployment and security monitoring. The sub-project will research on
(1) develop a appropriate security baseline for deployment and devops
(2) the process of incident response and related tech.
