Projects/OWASP Security Baseline Project/Roadmap

Jump to: navigation, search

Short term goal:

  • Establish an OWASP community which actively test/baseline/benchmark security of enterprise solutions

Medium-long term goals: establish OWASP as an independent party for testing (eventually certifying) security of enterprise solutions.

Based on comprehensive assessment I've done on products/services pertaining to anti-spam/anti-virus email security (as part of 'Testing the Enterprise Security Infrastructure' personal project ), I plan to start with a testing methodology suitable for this class of enterprise security products/services.


  • Establish the testing methodology for for enterprise anti-spam/anti-virus email security solutions mapping to OWASP Top 10 (test plan, techniques, tools);
  • Establish the disclosure policy.


  • Have the testing methodology published; draft and publish the OWASP Security Baseline for at least one representative product/service (planning to use work I did on assessing Symantec Brightmail Gateway/IBM Provential Network Mail Security System/Google Message Security - to be decided);
  • Gather community support on such initiatives.


  • Testing methodology for enterprise anti-spam/anti-virus email security solutions published, some representative products/services baselined;
  • Have the framework in pace for baselining other classes of products/services;
  • Reach out for individual/group contributions from IT professionals looking to increase the IS awareness, those looking to test their skills on enterprise products, security professionals, security researchers, academia, etc;
  • Coordinate such efforts and publish community-validated results.
