Projects Under Review

  • 2014 Project Handbook

  • Project Tool Summit 2014
    • There is a possibility that we will be able to have 2 summits this year.
    • I am still in the process of working out the logistics of the OWASP Tool Summit.
    • We are still not certain if it is something we can move forward with, but we are pursuing the possibility.
    • The aim is to bring OWASP Tool Project Leaders together to work on their projects in an effort to increase quality and usability.
    • I am working with several Project Leaders on their summit proposals for the event.
  • ESAPI Hackathon
    • The ESAPI Hackathon is now over, but we still have quite a bit to coordinate.
    • We have announced the winners, informed them of their prizes, and we are in the process of coordinating the prize allocation.
    • We are having a t-shirt designed for the project which all contributing members will receive.
    • The project team is currently voting on their favorite design for a t-shirt.
    • Once they decide, we will get the shirts printed and sent over to the winners along with their other prizes.
  • Blackstone Grant Proposal
    • Kait, Kate, and I have been working on putting together a grant proposal that has the potential to award the foundation some funds to develop a Veteran's educational program.
    • Kait put together the initial proposal, and Kate and I have been working on the final draft.
    • We had to adjust the milestones for the proposed project, and we had to adjust the budget allocation as well.
    • I am in the final stages of the grant writing process, and I hope to submit the proposal by next week Friday.
  • Marketing Brochure
    • I am putting together the copy for our OWASP Marketing Brochure.
    • We purchased the original design from Design Foundry, but our copy was not complete at the time the design was purchased.
    • Once the copy is complete, I will update the images and replace the content in the In-Design file.
    • I hope to have this completed and sent out by next week.

Current Project Funds

OWASP Java Encoder 1.1.1 released!

The OWASP Java Encoder is a Java 1.5 simple-to-use drop-in high-performance encoder class with no dependencies and little baggage. This project will help Java web developers defend against Cross Site Scripting!

Version 1.1.1 of the OWASP Java Encoder has been released.

Release Notes:

1) ESAPI for Java Integration! The following Jar will override the default ESAPI Java Encoder class and will provide a rather dramatic increase in runtime performance, a rather dramatic decrease in object instantiation and a rather dramatic reduction in memory utilization for scalable encoding needs. We honor the ESAPI Encoder interface and satisfy all existing unit tests for Encoding.



2) Squash those bugs! The critical bug described here has been fixed. https://code.google.com/p/owasp-java-encoder/issues/detail?id=4&can=1 Thank you for this bug report, and we will endeavor to move faster in the future.

3) New Wiki Design! In an effort to provide a more professional front end for the project, we have already implemented the new OWASP wiki template that was released a few days ago. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Java_Encoder_Project

If you have any questions about deploying the OWASP Java Encoder project, please visit https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Java_Encoder_Project#tab=Deploy_the_Java_Encoder_Project for Maven and manual Jar deployments. Please join the email list with any questions here: https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/owasp-java-encoder-project

I want to give a huge thank you to Jeremy Long and Jeff Ichnowski for their gracious volunteer time and expertise in working on this project.

Happy Encoding from the OWASP Java Encoder Team, Jim Manico, Jeff Ichnowski, Jeremy Long OWASP Java Encoder Project

Project Review Assistance Required

Hello Leaders,

We are still in need of more survey results. We would like to ask that you take a bit of time to fill in a short survey that we will use to assess the Usability and Value of each project to its users and the community.

You can find the assessment survey here: Project Usability and Value Assessment

Below are the projects we are currently focusing on assessing:

Please note that this is only one part of the full assessment for each project. The more responses we can get for each project, the better. Please only complete the assessment if you are familiar with the project, or if you have time to familiarize yourself with the project. Thank you to those of you who have submitted your responses. Your assistance is very much appreciated.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your assistance, Leaders.
