Project Division Updates

Currently Working On

  • SourceForge Update
    • Audrey has replied.
    • She has not received payment.
    • I confirmed with Alison that payment was made in the beginning of December.
    • I have sent Audrey the payment details, and I am waiting to hear back from her now.
    • Our account with SourceForge is now closed.
  • OWASP Licenses Update
    • This is the final draft of the letter: Letter.
    • Dr. Gottlieb has responded with a change in license. I have made the necessary changes on our records.
    • The other two project leaders have not responded.
    • I will reach out to them before the day ends.
  • AppSec APAC 2013: Planning
    • I have now closed down the 'Call for Entries' for the Open Source Showcase.
    • We received no applicants for the OSS.
    • The Project Track has 4 interested applicants.
    • We are in the process of sorting out logistics for these potential speakers.
  • CTF at our Global AppSec Conferences
    • I spoke with Steven van der Baan about developing a CTF event module for OWASP AppSec Conferences.
    • We agreed that South Korea would have to pass for this year, but that we should aim for having CTF at AppSec USA, Europe, and Latin America.
    • Steven can get time off for USA and Europe.
    • Steven will need funding for hotel and travel expenses. (I will check with the foundation to see if we can do this).
    • The CTF module is scalable and Steven agreed to help us teach other volunteers how to run the event if he can't make it.
    • There is a possibility we can combine the University Challenge module with CTF. I will touch base with Martin after the holidays to see if this is possible.
    • Next Steps: We will begin developing a way to teach back up volunteers how to run CTF Steven's absence.
  • New Project Web Page
    • The new Project Page design is now complete.
    • Please review the page, and note down any comments, changes, etc.
    • I plan to make this live towards the beginning of January.
  • Assessment Criteria, Lifecycle, and Graduation Processes
    • I have not received feedback since the last GPC meeting.
    • Please review when you get the opportunity, and provide feedback.
    • If there is no feedback, I will assume that the proposal has no objections.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
    • Project status information.
    • Several project donations questions.
    • OWASP LinkedIn Updates.
    • What's happening with projects, questions.

More Funding Potential

  1. Guidebooks Grant Payment: We are still waiting to hear back from Deb regarding payment.
  2. ESAPI Grant Proposal: The proposal has passed the first round of reviews. It is now at the peer review stage with 6 other applications. I suspect we will hear back from the DHS after the holidays.
  3. Ryan and I have agreed on a project plan for the ModSecurity Project.
  4. I have begun the grant writing process.
  5. This will be for a $30,000 grant proposal.
