|Project Name||OWASP Education Project Project|
|Short Project Description||The project will continuously deliver education material about OWASP tooling and documentation. This aims to create an easy entrance towards understanding application security and usage of the OWASP tooling. By creating education documentation papers, screen scrape video courses and setting up an OWASP Boot camp, a controlled education process of a standardized quality can be created continuously. With the setup of a OWASP Boot camp, the OWASP word can be spread in a controlled manner and deliver high quality training., both inside and outside of the OWASP community. The OWASP Education Project will setup and standardize OWASP trainings manuals and materials to ensure a certain level of quality of the trainings. Trainings about the OWASP tooling and projects will have to be reviewed by the Projects.|

Welcome to the OWASP Education Project
Web Application Security Education and Awareness is needed throughout the entire organization, each area and level of organizations have specific needs and requirements regarding education. A manager needs other information than a security professional or developer. Novices to the profession require other training than people with several years of experience.
This Education project aims to provide in building blocks of web application security information. These modules can be combined together in education tracks targeting different audiences.
The first list of modules can be found here.
Goals & Roadmap
Currently the project goals are to create Educational Tracks:
- A Web Application Security Primer Track for beginners (4 hours)
- What Developers Should Know on Web Application Security Track for developers (4 hours)
- Create a consolidation page of OWASP presentations performed in the past with the possibility to add comments
- OWASP Boot Camp OWASP Training events, get ready for secure application development
- Capture the flag application
Further breakdown of tasks and future developments are listed in the road map.
The Education project was selected for Spoc007 participation (see page for progress).
The SpoC007 goal is to finish Sub Goals 1, 2, 3 and perform Sub Goal 4 during the coming months (road map).
Project Guiding Principles
This project aims to provide in building blocks of web application security knowledge that can easily be integrated in awareness sessions or presentations on this topic. The building blocks provided by this project can then be bundled together in eduction tracks.
An important guideline is therefore that the material produced is modular.
This project is not standalone. There is an awfull lot of information that can be found throughout this site and from other resources on the Internet.
This project will draw pieces of information from:
- The Video's
- The presentations, currently being inventorized in the consolidation page of OWASP presentations
One of the modules to create will be a Resources module, not limited to OWASP.
