For Immediate Release

OWASP Autumn of Code 2006

London, United Kingdom, September 29, 2006

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) has recently launched a new project entitled "OWASP Autumn of Code 2006” that is aimed at financially sponsoring contributions to OWASP Projects.

On the 18th of September our call for entries ended and on the 25th of September we released our list of selected projects to be sponsored. OWASP has made the decision to sponsor 9 projects (5 at $3,500 USD and 4 at $5,000 USD) instead of our originally planned number of 8. We are pleased to report about the exceptional quality of the submissions that were received and we would also like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to submit their ideas to us. It was difficult narrowing the list down to the final 9 projects chosen, and we hope those that were not sponsored will resubmit their ideas in future OWASP sponsorships.

Our congratulations to the successful winning projects and their respective OWASP Autumn of Code 2006 candidates:

1. WebScarab NG – Rogan Dawes
2. Live CD – Joshua Perrymon
3. CAL9000 – Chris Loomis
4. SiteGenerator and ORG – Mike de Libero
5. Pantera – Simon Roses
6. Web Goat – Sherif Koussa
7. Testing Guide – Matteo Meucci
8. OWASP .NET Tools – Boris Maletic
9. OWASP Website and Branding – Aaron M. Holmes
