Joshua Perrymon - OWASP LiveCD Project

Executive Summary

I am proposing that I complete the second version of the OWASP LiveCD during this period. The first version of the LiveCD is now available and include many of the current OWASP documents and tools. I believe the LiveCD is one of the best mediums to promote OWASP tools and documentation. It is portable and already being used by thousands of security proffesionals to perform application testing and training.

In the current state the CD is stable and contains a lot of tools. However, this is just the beginning. There is a LOT of work that needs to be completed. The entire CD experience needs to be branded using OWASP graphics. This shouls start with the boot screen and carry all the way through to the icons and desktop graphics. The CD should also inlcude the wiki and ALL the tools developed for OWASP.

Objectives and Deliverables

Update of the LiveCD:

  • Complete OWASP branding
  • Add OWASP wiki
  • Add encryption capabilities
  • Add more OWASP tools
  • Add more pen-test tools such as VOIP, RFID, BlueTooth, Wireless, etc.

Why I should be sponsored for the project

I had the idea of the LiveCD about a year ago and have worked very hard to get the first version developed. This was driven by my vision to make all of the OWASP tools available on a portable medium. The main difference in the OWASP liveCD vs. other live CDs is going to be the regularity of updates. If sponsorship can be obtained the CD could be updated on a monthly basis. Not once a year like other liveCDs. The CD will also include specialty tools and documentation to perform VOIP, RFID,Bluetooth, and wireless security assessments.
