THIS IS THE OWASP TESTING GUIDE PROJECT ROADMAP FOR V5. You can download the stable version v4 here:


The OWASP Testing Guide v4 includes a “best practice” penetration testing framework which users can implement in their own organisations. The Testing Guide v4 also includes a “low level” penetration testing guide that describes techniques for testing the most common web application and web service security issues. Today the Testing Guide is the standard to perform Web Application Penetration Testing, and many companies around the world have adopted it. It is vital to maintain an updated project that represents the state of the art for WebAppSec.

The aim of the Working Session is to discuss and define the scope and content of OWASP Testing Guide v5.


  • All sections in v4 reviewed
  • Project aligned with the ASVS and OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities
  • A more readable guide created that eliminates sections that are not useful
  • New testing techniques inserted
  • Some sections rationalised as Session Management Testing
  • New section created: Client side security and Firefox extensions testing
  • Project v5 Deadlines:
  • 1: Setup the team of authors
  • 2: Start a brainstorming for the new index starting from “Release Description”
  • 3: Create the new index and confirm new team
  • 4: Start writing articles first phase
  • 5: OWASP Summit TGv5 review and brainstorming
  • 6: Start writing articles II phase
  • 7: Start the second review phase
  • 8: Create the RC1
  • 9: Release version 5
