OWASP Security Controls in Web Application Development Lifecycle
How can I participate in your project?
All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

Aim of this project: To integrate security in application development lifecycle. At each and every stage of an application being developed, we will have security pushed into the process. We all know that there is a direct connection from the web application to the database. Security needs to be right at the application development end. Having security controls right from the start will ensure the application is developed in a secure fashion and methodology.
