OWASP Boulder

Welcome to the Boulder chapter homepage. The chapter leader is Mark Major.


OWASP Foundation (Overview Slides) is a professional association of global members and is open to anyone interested in learning more about software security. Local chapters are run independently and guided by the Chapter_Leader_Handbook. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional association your support and sponsorship of any meeting venue and/or refreshments is tax-deductible. Financial contributions should only be made online using the authorized online chapter donation button. To be a SPEAKER at ANY OWASP Chapter in the world simply review the speaker agreement and then contact the local chapter leader with details of what OWASP PROJECT, independent research or related software security topic you would like to present on.

Thursday, January 17th at 6pm – OWASP Project Round-Up

To kick off 2013 the Boulder Chapter is holding an OWASP Project Roundup. Chapter members will showcase OWASP projects --from well-known to obscure-- in a series of lightning talks.

When: Thursday, January 17th at 6:00pm
Where: Aerstone, located at 1711 Pearl St. (3rd floor).
Parking: Free through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone.
RSVP: available through
Virtual meeting: available through WebEx.

To make this work I need volunteers. Your job is to pick a project, learn a bit about it, then present it to the rest of the group. Informal discussions are good, prepared presentations are better, and live demos are best. The goal is lively, informative, low-stress discussions rather than formal, extensively-research presentations. Spend an hour or two familiarizing yourself with your project (you do not need to be an expert on it), jot your notes into a couple of slides, then share with the group for 5 - 10 minutes.

Need help selecting a project? Take a look at the OWASP Projects page. Try tools you use already (the OWASP Top 10), tools you've heard of and want to learn more about (WebGoat), or discover something entirely new (ESAPI). All projects are encouraged, from the popular to the esoteric. Still undecided? Send me a note with your interest in presenting and I will happily suggest some projects to choose from.

To avoid duplicates, project topics will be first-come first-served. Email your topic idea to either mark.major or rob.jepson at and we will add you to the meeting agenda. Please check this Wiki (or the chapter's page) to see what other people have taken prior to choosing your topic.

Current project presentations (in no particular order):

  • Mike: DirBuster
  • Greg: Mantra
  • Del: Zap
  • Karen: Threat Modeling
  • Rob: Top 10
  • Mark: TBD (whatever is left over)

Please remember that seating is limited and is prioritized for those who RSVP through MeetUp. If you have a change of plans, please update your RSVP status to allow space for those on the waiting list. Food and drinks are provided and the facilities will remain open after the meeting for socializing and networking. All meetings are free to attend.

Special Thanks

The Boulder chapter is grateful for the continued sponsorship of Aerstone. Thank you for providing the venue, refreshments, and other resources necessary to keep the chapter running strong.
