CAUTION - THIS PAGE IS UNDER REVIEW BY OWASP MANAGEMENT TO DETERMINE IF IT IS A LEGITIMATE POSTING AS OF JANUARY 14, 2016. P.RITCHIE OWASP EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
THE REAL 'OWASP PYTHON SECURITY PROJECT' PAGE WHICH HAS BEEN IN OFFICIAL OPERATION FOR SEVERAL YEARS CAN BE FOUND AT https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Python_Security_Project P.RITCHIE OWASP EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.
The Python technology knowledge base is the clearing house for all information related to building secure web/distributed applications and services based on Python and Python related technologies. The focus of the project is on guidance for developers and architects using Python frameworks and Python based technologies for web and distributed application development, on OWASP components that use Python and on participation in OWASP projects that use Python technologies. Moreover, we aim to provide security related guidance for system administrators managing Python and Python based applications and tools.
A different aspect is using Python as active languages for writing security related tools. Due to its presence on all kind of systems and the availability and power of security libraries, it is one of the major programming languages to implement security applications and scripts.
Community content is key to security information. The project depends on content from developers throughout the Python ecosystem.

|Python Security is a free, open source, OWASP project that aims at creating a hardened version of python that makes it easier for security professionals and developers to write applications more resilient to attacks and manipulations. The project is designed to explore how web applications can be developed in python by approaching the problem from three different angles: white-box analysis, structural and functional analysis, black-box analysis, identify and address security-related issues, develop security hardened python suitable for high-risk and high-security environments||http://www.pythonsecurity.org/|

If you have ideas for new operations, documentations, documents, projects, please drop a line on the mailing list or in a mail to project team.
|Python security related net resources guide|
|The Python Project is principally about creating deep, rich guidance for Python developers using all kind of security resources. The idea is to have an effort of building a internet resource guide for everything around the Python universe. Information, blogs, articles, tools, test servers and more. Important however is that this list is seriously curated.|
|Concrete guideline for Python developers|
|Clear checklists, around various topics, language, servers and frameworks.|

There are many ways of getting involved in an OWASP wiki bases.
The first step would be to establish contact with the project leaders and/or the entire team. This can be done using a direct and private message, or by joining the public mailing list to say hello.
When it comes to participating in project activities, everything depends on the time you are willing and able to invest. It is however very important to not jump into too many things at the beginning, later having to back out or to let unfinished things behind you. It is much better to start with small tasks, increasing intensity and investment over time.
Please also be patient with expecting the "merge" of your work into the existing project pages and code. As everywhere in live, trust has to be built-up.
The Python Project has currently multiple tasks open, which can be found on the adequate section of this page. Not all tasks require a wiki account. Please take something you are interested in and start participating. Work load is not the only outcome when participating in open projects. You are getting a lot of things back: recognition, satisfaction, knowledge and contacts, sometime friends.
Sounds cool? Then jump in...
IMPORTANT: all pages of these project are currently under review. A lot are outdated and are in the process of being removed or updated.
