OWASP Code Library Project

Zezengorri is a library that allows you to add security to your development IDE from day one. From the moment you decide to implement secure development to your projects.

You can start either while designing your new projects or implement it in old projects. You can use it to detect vulnerabilities of your web server and the programming language even before starting the development parallel to the system development life circle.


Whenever developers, team leaders or project managers add security to a web application, the first question that comes to mind is which technologies will be implemented in the web project, what operating system is supported by the web server and on which version the server or database runs. For these reasons, OWASP defined a threat modeling document.

This project Zezengorri is a code library is a downloadable package that adheres to the root of the web project, and from them this can, analyzes and seeks to collect in a simple web page the characteristics of all the security components for examples: if our website uses or not HSTS, the versions of Chipset active, the use of SSL certificate for the web page among other securities characteristics important measure in the during the life cycle development software . Each of these item is display in a new web page in a list of item any show if is active or not, the version of the plugin and a web link. That links redirect to the CVE page and the CVE score of this item. determine if the project can be promoted to the next category. The information requested is also intended to help Project Leaders think about the road map and feature priorities, and give guidance to the reviews as a result of that effort.

Apart from detecting and resolving security issues, the recompiled information is also useful to project leaders who can use it to create risk-models for the websites they manage.

News and Events

  • [1 Nov 2017] Release Page Explain the Concept, with a white Paper
  • [3 Apr 2018] The Inacap Institute and their students also start to participate in the Zezengorri owasp
  • [19 Aug 2018] 1.0 Release Candidate is available for download. This release provides final bug fixes and product stabilization. Any feedback (good or bad) in the next few weeks would be greatly appreciated.

How can I participate in our project?

If you have experience in web development using for example: Node.JS, C# or Java and are interested in learning about applications security please contact us via the official mail: [email protected]

If I am not a programmer can I participate in our project?

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technician. The project needs different skills and expertise for different times during its development ,Currently we are looking for IT persons that are willing to investigate how implement and improve the security in applications.

We are looking right now people for make our:



-Development (using Node.Js and Python)


The OWASP Security Zenzengorri Principles project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. A live update of project contributors is found here .

The first contributors to the project are:


As of february , 2017, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are: 

● Complete the first draft of the Code Project Template

● Get other people to review the Code Project Template and provide feedback

● Incorporate feedback into changes in the Code Project Template

● Finalize the Code Project template and have it reviewed to be promoted from an

Incubator Project to a Lab Project

As of march , 2017, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

Release version of library 1.0

● Promote the library in conferences

● Get academic support

● Recruit more volunteers

Subsequent Releases will add

·        Internationalization Support

·        Additional Unit Tests

·        Automated Regression tests

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of Code Project Template is actively encouraged. 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 Code Project Template into that language?

German French Russian Portuguese


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 Code 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 functionalities of this code library are when it is downloaded and implemented.

-Detect vulnerabilities

-Relate vulnerabilities, with an updated database online. -Ranking the severity of vulnerabilities with their criticality. -Describe solutions for fix the vulnerabilities

-Help with the implementation of classes and functions to implement secure development
