  • OWASP Corporate Application Security Rating Guide - Create and release the first version of this very important document ( funds from Cenzic membership fees)
  • Questions for SANS - Write 200 questions for SANS with a % of those questions made open to the OWASP community (funds directly allocated by SANS for this project)
  • Source Code Review OWASP Projects - Implement a workflow where all OWASP projects that use JAVA technology are automatically audited for security flaws (funds directly allocated by Fortify Software for this project)
