OWASP stands for Open Web Application Security Project and is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software. The OWASP Top 10 is a standard awareness document for developers and web application security. It represents a broad consensus about the most critical security risks to web applications. Using the OWASP Top 10 is an effective first step towards changing the software development culture into one that produces more secure code.
