For more information on starting a new OWASP project, please visit [https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Project#tab=Starting_a_New_Project https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Project#tab=Starting_a_New_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.
+
 
+
* 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 ==
+
 
+
[https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/Doc?docid=0AX4Puwz7EA41ZGNuODk2MmNfODJnOXNyNm5jaw&hl=en&authkey=CODE694L Here's the simple process for starting a new OWASP Project].
+
<br>
+
* Get the following information together:
+
 
+
A - PROJECT
+
# Project Name,
+
# Project purpose / overview,
+
# Project Roadmap,
+
# Project links (if any) to external sites,
+
# [http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Guidelines_for_OWASP_Projects#Project_Licensing Project License],
+
# Project Leader name,

# Project Leader email address,
+
# Project Leader wiki account - the username (you'll need this to edit the wiki),
+
# Project Contributor(s) (if any) - name email and wiki account (if any),
+
# Project Main Links (if any).
+
<br>
+
*As your project reaches a point that you'd like OWASP to assist in its promotion, the [[Global Projects Committee|OWASP Global Projects Committee]]  will need the following to help spread the word about your project:
+
 
+
# [http://globalprojectscommittee.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/what-is-the-3x-slide-presentation-thing/ Conference style presentation that describes the tool/document in at least 3 slides],
+
# [http://globalprojectscommittee.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/what-is-this-project-flyerpamphlet-thing/ Project Flyer/Pamphlet (PDF file)],
+
<br>
+
* If possible, get also the following information together:
+
 
+

See [[Tutorial]] and [[:User:Mtesauro|here]] how to do it and [[:Category:OWASP Live CD Project|here]] an example of how it will be used.
+
<br>
+
* To get your project started, send the info above to the [[Global Projects Committee|OWASP Global Projects Committee]] or the OWASP [mailto:paulo.coimbra(at)owasp.org Project Manager] directly.  We'll review the information and get you set up with a project wiki page, a mailing list, and subscribe you to the OWASP-Leaders list.
