Application Security Verification Standard

The OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) Project provides a basis for testing web application technical security controls and also provides developers with a list of requirements for secure development.


The Application Security Verification Standard is a list of application security requirements or tests that can be used by architects, developers, testers, security professionals, and even consumers to define what a secure application is.

ASVS has two main goals:

  • to help organizations develop and maintain secure applications
  • to allow security service, security tools vendors, and consumers to align their requirements and offerings


Risk analysis is always subjective and this is why we expect that there will most likely never be a 100% agreement on this standard. However, keeping the standard up-to-date is certainly a step in the right direction and it will enhance the overall concepts introduced in this important industry standard.


This Working Session will result in a short summary which will include the list of items that need to be updated, added, or changed in order to make the standard more applicable to modern applications.


The target audience for this Working Session is:

  • Security champions
  • Security architects
  • DevOps Roles
  • CISOs
