This page contains details about funds available to OWASP projects.

The sponsorship model is different from the one used in AoC 06 and SpoC 007 since these are cases where specific money (throughout out the year) has been allocated to OWASP projects (for example by new OWASP members or by companies/organizations with specific requirements/projects)

  • Project description:: Continue development of Site Generator, write new vulnerabilities, work on new dynamic engine, document findings

Questions for SANS (5k)

  • Project description:: Write JAVA/JSP questions for SANS's Software Security Institute certification exams( The candidate will need to write 200 questions and answers and must be a knowledgeable and respected member of the Java community. For obvious reasons only 10% to 20% of the questions created will be disclosed to the OWASP community, with the remainder to be used in the certification's exams.

Note that although this first request is for questions in JAVA/JSP there are plans to run a similar project for C, C++, PHP, .NET, so if you are interested in these other languages feel free to contact us.
