Security Testing Manuals#

Creating software is hard. Testing security risks even harder. So make use of good open testing guides.

OWASP Application Security Verification Standard#

The standard provides a basis for designing, building, and testing technical application security controls, including architectural concerns, secure development lifecycle, threat modelling, agile security including continuous integration / deploynent, serverless, and configuration concerns. See the latest version on the git repository: OWASP/ASVS Or download the PDF from the project main page:

OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide#

The Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG) is a comprehensive manual for mobile app security development, testing and reverse engineering. See:

OpenSSL: X.509 errors#

A great guide to improve understanding of X.509 errors.

A must read and must known for everyone who claims to be capable of configuring and maintaining TLS. In reality: Almost no one knowns and understands all aspects of TLS in depth.

Check the guides: OpenSSL: X.509 errors.

Mission of this project

Simplify the ecosystem by consolidating the errors and their documentation (similarly to web documentation) and better explaining what the validation errors mean.
