Working Session

Two Way internationalization working session

Hello All

Please help me identify people attending OWASP Summit at Portugal that might be interested in participating on this working session. This is what we want to achieve by the end of the session:

  • Define guidelines to develop translation guidelines for non Latin languages (Russian, Arabian, Korean, etc.),
  • Identify translation efforts on OWASP materials in progress.
  • Define if large language translations should be OWASP projects
  • Generate traction on new full translation initiatives (Materials, site and tools)
  • Identify best way to track materials ready to translate (to or from English)
  • Check if a "translator/intermediary" method would work for OWASP to allow non-English people create chapters, contact leaders, etc.

This is great opportunity to "spread the word on application security" by enriching OWASP materials/ideas with non-English speakers contribution boosting OWASP philosophy exposure exponentially :)

So if you know anyone that might be interested please ask her/him to enroll in the following page:

Also you can share with them the links to OWASP Internationalization and OWASP Spanish projects (both pages in English) to start learning about this internationalization efforts at OWASP.

Regards, Juan Carlos

Classic ASP Security using OWASP tools Training

Hello OWASP Leaders

If you are from the "old school" or are in contact with classic ASP applications, you might be interested in this training course at OWASP-Summit. Classic ASP 2.0 and 3.0 applications are still largely used as this technology is more than 10 years old and was largely used. there are thousands of sites on the wild that need guidance on the security arena. This is where OWASP can come up and provide help for “making the Web a better place”.

This 1 day training session will be held on Monday Nov 3rd. You will learn how to develop, test and protect Classic ASP applications using well known OWASP tools, these are the main topics:

  • Secure programming on ASP using OWASP ESAPI (All the Top 10 domains are covered)
  • Auditing ASP code with Code Review Project checklist
  • Implementing OWASP Stinger protection for Classic ASP
  • Complementary security best practices.

If you are interested or want more info about the course feel free to reply back to me
