OWASP Project of the Month


  • OSS in Cambridge
    • We are having some issues getting projects to submit an application to participate in Open Source Showcase at AppSec EU 2014.
    • I have asked the community for support and advice on how to engage volunteers to participate in this event module.
    • We put together this blog post to announce the opportunity: OSS at AppSec EU
    • Adrian is helping us by spreading the word, and so are the rest of the team.
    • We hope to get some more submissions in the coming weeks.

    • I have been working with the AppSec EU team to organize the 2014 Project Summit.
    • We currently have 3 summit session proposals, but I need more.
    • We are also seeking 10K USD sponsorship for the summit.
    • I am working with Kelly to get this going, and we will be announcing the opportunity soon.
  • Project Reviews
    • There will likely be some changes to the review process based on community and Board feedback.
    • I am currently working with several Leaders to design a system and project model that will better meet our needs.
    • Johanna is currently working on a pilot program for one part of this system.
    • I am working on consolidating community feedback to put together an end to end system design for us.
  • Project Task Force
    • This week we started our OWASP Project task force group.
