Project Meetings

Project Meeting Notes

March 8, 2013

Eoin audio was breaking up. Eoin mention having a working group email distro list for authors and reviewers.

Samantha sent out grant chat for review. Eoin is creating a template for Authors to us.

Met with Johanna Curiel and Sherif Koussa. We met for a little under an hour. I brought on the point that code review structure needs to include configuration/xml files besides actual code. OWASP top ten now includes security misconfigurations that are no longer just at the level of infrastructure level on an organization but can happen by the application programmer.

We talk about the current structure. Sherif made the suggestion that the code review structure should use a top down approach with top being more process oriented with a generic checklist to cover all programming platforms. This high level approach would follow the OWASP top ten list but be at a slightly lower level.

From that generic checklist we could subdivide it into sections for each language and specific techniques to help guide the code reviewer.

Johanna and I both thought we would still need the checklist (maybe at a subsection level) to be specific to a language platform.

Some sections would only need to be at a generic level such as session management. (???) I think the current TOC actual might have this in mind but maybe it could be laid out with top levels talking about processes.

Sherif also brought up the point about where the code review process would take place in SDLC. Would it be for at the application level or at the code module level? Would we have a code review process that takes place in application design level so security would not be bolted on as an after thought.

It was agreed that by 4/5/2013 we are going with the TOC as it is. Eoin is very open that during the project that if a subject matter that needs to be included it will be addresses at that time. We are working on assigning dates to sections and authors.

Samantha is working on getting base line wiki pages created for the project so authors can add contributed text. Eoin emphasized that all work submitted by each author needs to be original work. Authors do not need to put extra effort/work into diagrams. Eoin says will have all artwork touched up by a profession. We also need to make sure where necessary we have the proper references.
