Roadmap

  • Determine the current market need. This requires involvement from people in enterprise that are tacking these problems. No guessing about what we think people need.
  • Evaluate current OWASP projects to understand match with market need and quality of projects
  • Identify 3-4 projects that will be focused on for growth and promotion
  • Archive other projects that are abandoned or not inline with market need
  • Cross training - We should all be able to help out to advance our 3-4 core projects

Official Defender Projects
