[edit]

Welcome to the OWASP Global Projects Page

An OWASP project is a collection of related tasks that have a defined roadmap and team members. OWASP project leaders are responsible for defining the vision, roadmap, and tasks for the project. The project leader also promotes the project and builds the team. OWASP currently has over 148 active projects, and new project applications are submitted every week.

This is one of the most popular divisions of OWASP as it gives members an opportunity to freely test theories and ideas with the professional advice and support of the OWASP community. Every project has an associated mail list. You can view all the lists, examine their archives, and subscribe to any project by visiting the OWASP Project Mailing Lists page. A summary of recent project announcements is available on the OWASP Updates page.

So you want to start a project...

Starting an OWASP Project is easy. You don't have to be an application security expert. You just have to have the drive and desire to make a contribution to the application security community.

Here are some of the guidelines for running a successful OWASP project:

  • The best OWASP projects are strategic - they make it easier to produce secure applications by filling a gap in the application security knowledge-base or technology support.
  • You can run a single person project, but it's usually best to get the community involved. You should be prepared to support a mailing list, build a team, speak at conferences, and promote your project.
  • You can contribute existing documents or tools to OWASP! Assuming you have the intellectual property rights to a work, you can open it to the world as an OWASP Project. Please coordinate this with OWASP by contacting owasp(at)owasp.org.
  • Available Grants to consider if you need funding - Click Here
  • You should promote your project through the OWASP channels as well as by outside means. Get people to blog about it!


Creating a new project

Here's the simple process for starting a new OWASP Project.


  • Get the following information together:

A - PROJECT

  1. Project Name,
  2. Project purpose / overview,
  3. Project Roadmap,
  4. Project links (if any) to external sites,
  5. Project License,
  6. Project Leader name,
  7. Project Leader email address,
  8. Project Leader wiki account - the username (you'll need this to edit the wiki),
  9. Project Contributor(s) (if any) - name email and wiki account (if any),
  10. Project Main Links (if any).


OWASP Recommended Licenses

Why are you recommending these licenses?
Which other open source licenses are eligible for an OWASP project?

Allow commercial uses of your work?
Yes No
  Allow modifications of your work?
Yes, no restriction except attribution Yes, as long as modification are also opensource No
ToolProject
(Non-WebBased)
Apache 2.0
(fewest restrictions, even allowing proprietary modifications and proprietary forks of your project, and more up-to-date than BSD license)
GPL 3.0
(requires that modifications to your code stay open source, thus prohibiting proprietary forks of your project)
Sorry, such licenses are not opensource and are not eligible to become an OWASP Sponsored Project. If this is really what you want, consider using CC-BY-ND or CC-BY-NC-ND. See http://creativecommons.org/choose for more information and note that they label these two license as "not a Free Culture License"
Tool Project
(WebBased)
AGPL 3.0
(prevents GPL's SaaS loophole)
Library Project LGPL 3.0
(similar to GPL but modified for use with libraries that may be called by other proprietary programs)
Document Project (includes E-Learning, presos, books, etc) CC-BY 3.0
(like Apache but for documents)
CC-BY-SA 3.0
(like GPL but for documents. Alternately you can use GFDL, but projects like Debian and Ubuntu don't accept it)



Funding your Project

An OWASP project does not receive any funding for development at project inception; however, a new project does have the opportunity to submit an application to receive funds if they are available for the year. Additionally, project leaders have the option of seeking sponsorship from outside organisations, but project leaders are required to seek funding through their own initiative.

Project Release

  • As your project reaches a point that you'd like OWASP to assist in its promotion, the OWASP Global Projects Committee will need the following to help spread the word about your project:
  1. Conference style presentation that describes the tool/document in at least 3 slides,
  2. Project Flyer/Pamphlet (PDF file),


  • If possible, get also the following information together:

B – FIRST RELEASE

  1. Release Name,
  2. Release Description,
  3. Release Downloadable file link
  4. Release Leader,
  5. Release Contributor(s),
  6. Release Reviewer,
  7. Release Sponsor(s) (if any),
  8. Release Notes
  9. Release Main Links (if any),


Project Process Forms

These forms were created to help project leaders, and those interested in a going through a process in the OWASP projects infrastructure. They facilitate the management of each query based on the specific task an applicant will need help with. The forms are described below, and they are linked with their designated online application form.

  • Project Transition Application:The OWASP project transition form gives current project leaders an easy way of handing over project administration information to individuals wishing to take over a project.
  • Project Review Application:This form is for current project leaders to request a review of their project based on OWASP graduation criteria. The aim is to designate an OWASP volunteer to review these projects within 3 months time.
  • Project Donation Application:This form is for projects outside of the OWASP project infrastructure. Project Leaders for these open source projects can choose to partner or give their project to OWASP directly through this form.
  • Project Abandonment Request:The OWASP project abandonment form gives current project leaders an easy way of letting the OWASP Foundation know that they wish to resign their project leader duties. This form should be used when no replacement project leader exists to take over these duties.


OWASP Project Lifecycle

The OWASP Projects Lifecycle represents a balance between keeping a very loose structure around OWASP projects, and ensuring that OWASP consumers are not confused about a project’s maturity and quality. The lifecycle stage allows consumers to easily identify mature projects, and projects that are proofs of concept, experimental, and classified as prototypes in their current state. The greater the maturity of the project, the greater the level of responsibility for the project leader. These responsibilities are not trivial as OWASP provides incentives and benefits (Section 7) for projects who take on these added responsibilities.


The OWASP Project Lifecycle is broken down into the following stages:

Incubator Projects: OWASP Incubator projects represent the experimental playground where projects are still being designed, ideas are still being proven, and development is still underway. The “OWASP Incubator” label allows OWASP consumers to readily identify a project’s maturity; moreover, the label allows project leaders to leverage the OWASP name while their project is still maturing. OWASP Incubator projects are given a place on the OWASP Projects Portal to leverage the organizations' infrastructure, and establish their presence and project history.

Labs Projects: OWASP Labs projects represent projects that have produced a deliverable of significant value. Leaders of OWASP Labs projects are expected to stand behind the quality of their projects as these projects have matured to the point where they are accepted by a significant portion of the OWASP community. While these projects are typically not production ready, the OWASP community expects that an OWASP Labs project leader is producing releases that are ready for mainstream usage. OWASP Labs Projects are meant to be the collection of established projects that have gained community support and acclaim by undergoing the project review process.

Flagship Projects: The OWASP Flagship designation is given to projects that have demonstrated superior maturity, established quality, and strategic value to OWASP and application security as a whole. Eligible projects are selected from the OWASP Labs project pool. This selection process generally ensures that there is only one project of each type covering any particular security space. OWASP Flagship projects represent projects that are not only mature, but are also projects that OWASP as an organization provides direct support to maintaining. The core mission of OWASP is to make application security visible and so as an organization, OWASP has a vested interest in the success of its Flagship projects. Since Flagship projects have such high visibility, these projects are expected to uphold the most stringent requirements of all OWASP Projects.

OWASP Project Stage Benefits

This section outlines the benefits of starting an OWASP project, and the benefits of being at each different stage in the projects lifecycle. In my short time here at OWASP as the PM, I have had several potential project leaders ask me what the benefits are of starting their project with OWASP. Below is my proposal for each Stage’s benefits.

Incubator

  • Financial Donation Management Assistance
  • Project Review Support
  • WASPY Awards Nominations
  • OWASP OSS and OPT Participation
  • Opportunity to submit proposal: $500 for Development.
  • Community Engagement and Support
  • Recognition and visibility of being associated with the OWASP Brand.

Labs

  • All benefits given to Incubator Projects
  • Technical Writing Support
  • Graphic Design Support
  • Project Promotion Support
  • OWASP OSS and OPT: Preference

Flagship

  • All benefits given to Incubator & Labs Projects
  • Grant finding and proposal writing help
  • Yearly marketing plan development
  • OWASP OSS and OPT participation preference


For more detailed information on OWASP Project Stage Benefits, please see the 2013 Project Handbook.


OWASP Project Graduation

The Project Graduation Process is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Incubator Graduation Form. The purpose of this process is to move a project from the OWASP Incubator into the OWASP Labs. In order to be considered for OWASP Labs, an Incubator project must have submitted an OWASP reviewed deliverable, and obtained at least two (2) positive responses for each of the core criteria project health questions.

The review centers around the following core questions. Each core question has three (3) specific questions made up of binary queries. A project must receive at least two (2) positive responses from each reviewer in two of the binary questions, to warrant a postive response for the core question. Each core question must receive a positive response from both project reviewers to pass the Project Health Assessment for Incubator Projects.


OWASP Project Health Assessment

The Project Health Assessment is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader when he/she applies for Project Graduation The purpose of this assessment is to determine whether a project meets the minimum criteria of an OWASP Project outlined in the Project Health Assessment Criteria Document. If a project passes the assessment, it then becomes eligible to graduate into the OWASP Labs Project stage. In order to be considered for OWASP Labs, an Incubator project must have submitted an OWASP reviewed deliverable, and obtained at least two (2) positive responses for each of the core criteria project health questions.


OWASP Project Deliverable/Release Assessment

The Project Deliverable/Release Review is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Project Deliverable Review Form. The purpose of this process is to review a project’s progress, and to make sure the project is heading in the right direction based on the roadmap they provided at project inception.

Reviews must be performed by two (2) OWASP Chapter or Project Leaders, and their review must answer affirmatively to at least the first two (2) core Project Deliverable/Release Review questions. A project must pass the OWASP Project Deliverable/Release Assessment in order to graduate into the OWASP Labs Project stage.


Flagship Projects

The OWASP Flagship designation is given to projects that have demonstrated superior maturity, established quality, and strategic value to OWASP and application security as a whole. OWASP Flagship projects represent projects that are not only mature, but are also projects that OWASP as an organization provides direct support to maintaining.

Philosophy

OWASP stands for informed security decisions based on a solid, comprehensive understanding of the business risk associated with an application. OWASP's philosophy is that achieving security involves all parts of an organization, including people, process, and technology. We support the use of our brand consistent with this philosophy. However, we cannot allow the use of our brand when it implies something inconsistent with OWASP's comprehensive and balanced approach to application security. Therefore, we have defined these brand usage rules to clarify appropriate and inappropriate uses of the OWASP brand, including our name, domain, logos, project names, and other trademarks.


Brand Usage Rules

The following rules make reference to all OWASP marketing and graphic materials. This refers to any tools, documentation, or other content from OWASP. The rules also make reference to "OWASP Published Standards" which are currently in the process of being developed and released. Currently there are no OWASP Published Standards.

  1. The OWASP Brand may be used to direct people to the OWASP website for information about application security.
  2. The OWASP Brand may be used in commentary about the materials found on the OWASP website.
  3. The OWASP Brand may be used by OWASP Members in good standing to promote a person or company's involvement in OWASP.
  4. The OWASP Brand may be used in association with an application security assessment only if a complete and detailed methodology, sufficient to reproduce the results, is disclosed.
  5. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that The OWASP Foundation supports, advocates, or recommends any particular product or technology.
  6. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology is compliant with any OWASP Materials other than an OWASP Published Standard.
  7. The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology can enable compliance with any OWASP Materials other than an OWASP Published Standard.
  8. The OWASP Brand must not be used in any materials that could mislead readers by narrowly interpreting a broad application security category. For example, a vendor product that can find or protect against forced browsing must not claim that they address all of the access control category.
  9. The OWASP Brand may be used by special arrangement with The OWASP Foundation.

OWASP Project Infrastructure

  • OWASP Project Lifecycle: The OWASP Projects Lifecycle represents a balance between keeping a very loose structure around OWASP projects, and ensuring that OWASP consumers are not confused about a project’s maturity and quality. The lifecycle stage allows consumers to easily identify mature projects, and projects that are proofs of concept, experimental, and classified as prototypes in their current state.


  • Incubator Project: OWASP Incubator projects represent the experimental playground where projects are still being fleshed out, ideas are still being proven, and development is still underway. The “OWASP Incubator” label allows OWASP consumers to readily identify a project’s maturity. The label also allows project leaders to leverage the OWASP name while their project is still maturing.


  • Labs Project: OWASP Labs projects represent projects that have produced a deliverable of value. While these projects are typically not production ready, the OWASP community expects that an OWASP Labs project leader is producing releases that are at least ready for mainstream usage.


  • Flagship Project: The OWASP Flagship designation is given to projects that have demonstrated superior maturity, established quality, and strategic value to OWASP and application security as a whole. OWASP Flagship projects represent projects that are not only mature, but are also projects that OWASP as an organization provides direct support to maintaining.


  • Project Benefits: The standard list of resources and incentives made available to project leaders based on their project's current maturity level.


OWASP Project Reviews

  • Project Reviews: Project reviews are the method OWASP uses to establish a minimal baseline of project characteristics and release quality. Reviews are not mandatory, but they are necessary if a project leader wishes to graduate to the next level of maturity within the OWASP Global Projects infrastructure. Projects can be reviewed when an Incubator project wishes to graduate into the OWASP Labs designation, and project releases can be reviewed if they want the quality of their deliverable to be vouched for by OWASP.


  • Project Reviewer Pool: The project reviewer pool is made up of veteran reviewers who have proven themselves dedicated to executing quality reviews of projects.


  • Project Graduation: The Project Graduation Process is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Incubator Graduation Form. The purpose of this process is to move a project from the OWASP Incubator into the OWASP Labs.


  • Project Health Assessment: The Project Health Assessment is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader when he/she applies for Project Graduation The purpose of this assessment is to determine whether a project meets the minimum criteria of an OWASP Project outlined in the Project Health Assessment Criteria Document.


  • Project Release: A project release refers to the final deliverable a project produces. It is the final product of the project.


  • Project Deliverable/Release Review: The Project Deliverable/Release Review is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Project Deliverable Review Form. The purpose of this process is to review a project’s progress, and to make sure the project is heading in the right direction based on the roadmap they provided at project inception.


OWASP Projects Processes

  • Project Processes: The set of streamlined processes that exist to help projects move smoothly through the OWASP Project Lifecycle.


  • Project Inception Process: The Project Inception Process is how a brand new idea becomes an OWASP Project. Such projects are labeled as OWASP Incubator projects. The process involves submitting the proposed project name, project leader information, project description, project roadmap, and selecting an appropriate open-source license for the project using the New Project Form on the Projects Portal.


  • Project Donation Process: The Project Donation Process is used for a project that has an existing functional release, but is not currently associated with OWASP. This process is the primary mechanism by which individuals or organizations can transfer the ownership of their project’s copyright to OWASP.


  • Project Transition Process: The Project Transition Process is used to transition leadership of a project to a new project leader. This is a simple automated process to transfer the relevant accounts, mailing lists, and other project resources to the new project leader.


  • Project Abandonment Process: The Project Abandonment Process was put in place for those occasions in which a project leader is no longer able to manage their project, and has not been able to find a suitable replacement for the leader role. Project Abandonment can also occur when the project leader feels his/her project has become obsolete. Under these circumstances, the acting project leader is encourage do submit the Project Abandonment Form found in the Projects Portal.


  • Incubator Graduation Process: The Incubator Graduation Process is an optional process undertaken at the request of a project leader using the Incubator Graduation Form. The purpose of this process is to move a project from the OWASP Incubator into the OWASP Labs.


Projects at Conferences

  • AppSec Conferences: OWASP AppSec conferences bring together industry, government, security researchers, and practitioners to discuss the state of the art in application security. This series was launched in the United States in 2004 and Europe in 2005. Global AppSec conferences are held annually in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.


  • Open Source Showcase: The Open Source Showcase is an OWASP AppSec Conference event module designed to give Open Source project leaders the opportunity to demo their projects.


  • OWASP Project Track: The OWASP Project Track is an OWASP AppSec Conference event module designed to give OWASP Project leaders the opportunity to showcase their projects as an official conference presenter.


OWASP Projects General

  • OWASP Code of Ethics: The OWASP Code of Ethics are the set of guidelines and principles that the OWASP Foundation expects all of its members and conference attendees to abide by. A copy of the Code of Ethics can be found here in the OWASP About page.


OWASP Projects, a global division of the OWASP Foundation, is run under the same world wide not-for-profit charitable status as all the foundation strategic groups. OWASP provides a platform for contributors to share their work while providing them with the project and community support they need throughout their project development. All OWASP Projects are run by volunteers and they rely on personal donations and sponsorship to continue their development. Donate to OWASP Projects, and we promise to spend your money wisely on open source initiatives.

This is how your money can help:

  • $20 could help us spread the word on the importance of open source initiatives in the Application Security industry.
  • $100 could help fund OWASP project demos at major conferences.
  • $250 could help get our volunteer Project Leaders to speaking engagements.
