We had a good meeting last week.

"Mapping the Software Assurance Landscape: A Guide to What’s Going On In the Community", Sean Barnum from Cigital. Sean provided 3 presentations: The Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC), CWE update, and the Software Assurance Landscape activities.

Sean's CWE update presentation was too large to upload to the OWASP site. Contact me directly if you want a copy.
