This is the official Github Repository of the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS). The MASVS establishes baseline security requirements for mobile apps that are useful in many scenarios. You can use it:

  • As a metric - To provide a security standard against which existing mobile apps can be compared by developers and application owners.
  • As guidance - To provide guidance during all phases of mobile app development and testing.
  • During procurement - To provide a baseline for mobile app security verification.

The MASVS is a sister project of the OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide.

The MSTG and the MASVS are being adopted by many companies, standards, and various organizations. Want to find out more? Check our users' document listing some of the adopters.
