OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities & STRIDE




The STRIDE threat model is a framework that helps identify and categorize security threats. STRIDE stands for Spoofing, Tampering, Repudiation, Information Disclosure, Denial of Service, and Elevation of Privilege. By mapping the vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10 to the STRIDE categories, you can better understand the types of threats you may be facing and how to address them.

Here's a mapping of the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities to the STRIDE categories:

  1. Injection - Tampering

  2. Broken Authentication and Session Management - Spoofing, Repudiation

  3. Insufficient Logging and Monitoring - Information Disclosure

  4. Insecure Design - Elevation of Privilege

  5. Security Misconfiguration - Spoofing, Tampering, Information Disclosure, Denial of Service

  6. Vulnerable and Outdated Components - Tampering, Denial of Service

  7. Insufficient Attack Protection - Tampering, Repudiation, Denial of Service, Elevation of Privilege

  8. Poor Code Quality - Tampering, Elevation of Privilege

  9. Insecure Communication - Information Disclosure

  10. Risky Business Logic - Tampering, Elevation of Privilege

As you can see, most of the vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10 can be mapped to multiple STRIDE categories, highlighting the complexity of web application security. By understanding the different types of threats you may face, you can take a more comprehensive approach to secure your web applications.


In conclusion, mapping the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities to the STRIDE categories can help you better understand the types of threats you may be facing and how to address them. By taking a comprehensive approach to web application security, you can better protect your users and data from a wide range of security threats.
