Roadmap to version 5.0 of the OWASP ASVS project


Josh Grossman, May 15, 2022

On behalf of the OWASP ASVS leadership team, we are excited to publicise the objectives and roadmap for the upcoming version 5.0 of the flagship OWASP Application Security Project. We are hoping to be able to release a final version by the end of the year but there is a lot to do and we need your help!

Our first milestone is the end of May by when we would like to have as much feedback as possible on the current standard so as to start planning how the next version will look.

You may wish to read through the full objectives and roadmap document (or keep reading this post), review the current “bleeding edge” version of the ASVS document, and check out our guide to contributing which also includes guidance of the process to go through to provide feedback.
