This is the official site of TSS-WEB, an open framework of ~200 baseline requirements that you can use for your web development security standard, policy or security concept. All of these requirements are based on common best practices (including those from OWASPSAFECode, ISO/IEC 27002, NIST and BSI) plus our own experiences in this field.

For instance, TSS-WEB also meets 14.2.1 control ("Secure Development Policy") of ISO/IEC 27002. Detailed compliance mappings are provided in appendix B to E.


The objective of TSS-WEB is to provide a framework of language-independent application security requirements that can used by organizations as a baseline to implement own security standards or policies for their web development.

Secure Coding Guidelines

TSS-WEB provides high-level requirements that can be used to derive secure coding guidelines for specific languages and frameworks.
