what is this project?
Name: OWASP VaultDB Project
Purpose: VaultDB is a multi-recipient cryptosystem and encrypted document store for LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) based web applications. This framework provide everything you need for storing encrypted documents inside a custom MySQL database. VaultDB also comes with a secure user login and authentication mechanism designed to avoid common security and cryptographic pitfalls.

VaultDB adds automatic transparent encryption to your application's data at the table/document level. Instead of using it's own internal storage engine, VaultDB stores the encrypted data inside a custom MySQL database for storage.

It's design is made to provide developers with a solid method for integrating strong cryptography inside web applications and secure data using NoSQL-like transactions.

This project can protect your application from 4 out of 10 critical security risks in the OWASP Top Ten Most Critical Web Application Security Risks from OWASP_Top_Ten_Project.

  • A1 Injection
  • A2 Broken Authentication and Session Management (was formerly A3)
  • A5 Security Misconfiguration (was formerly A6)
  • A6 Sensitive Data Exposure (merged from former A7 Insecure Cryptographic Storage and former A9 Insufficient Transport Layer Protection)
