Media Resources for Working Sessions

The following text is being provided by the chairs from each of the OWASP EU Summit 2008#WORKING_SESSIONS_-_November_4th_.26_5th_.28Tue.2C_Wed.29. It explains why the working session is important, why it matters to the industry and what might be the beneficial outcomes. We hope to have public/industry information from all the working sessions here in due course for advanced publicity purposes.

OWASP Documentation Projects
Briefing Text The working session on OWASP Documentation Projects is a great chance to understand how the set of OWASP related documents can be used as a toolset to promote security on software development and management. The outcomes from PCI DSS v.1.2 and other standards that will come form the market, shows how important is to understand the importance of protection measures on coding and how these actions will come back in high quality products that can reach the market in a more adequate fashion.

The outcomes will promote OWASP documents in the market and to be part of it will make the difference for your company, your career and your personal contribution for the security community.

OWASP .NET Project
Briefing Text OWASP secures .NET web applications and services. This working session will promote the OWASP .NET initiative, and discuss the roadmap for OWASP .NET for 2009. Additional objectives include discussing vulnerability research, application review and guidance for .NET and Mono (Open Source .NET) projects.

Are we protecting .NET/Mono developers? Is there adequate security guidance and vulnerability research for technology platforms, frameworks, community software, including:

  • ASP.NET Data Services
  • Sharepoint
  • Silverlight
  • Community Server
  • Wikipedia Search (Mono)
  • DekiWiki (Mono)

OWASP Education Project
Briefing Text

There is plenty of knowledge available inside the OWASP community, spread via the wiki, Conferences, chapter meetings and not to forget the books.

Another important way to distribute the available knowledge is though education!

The Summit Working Session on Education will cover important aspects such as:

  • How to improve knowledge transfer from OWASP projects towards the community,
  • How to create training material (lessons, classes, courses) from OWASP project material?
  • How to set up an OWASP education baseline,
  • How to setup an OWASP Boot Camp,
  • How to connect to organisation to promote OWASP education content: e.g. universities, other non-profit (or profit?) education organisations,
  • How to organize the OWASP / Conference trainings to make them the best in the world?
  • Can we integrate this into OWASP certification projects?
  • How to setup an OWASP Boot Camp?

This working session is the ideal opportunity to build further on the shoulders of giants and spread OWASP's solutions through the education project!

OWASP Awards
Briefing Text

Governments, businesses and people rely on the Internet - the Internet has almost become something we cannot live without. But the Internet suffers from one terrible flaw: it's insecure. It's insecure because we've rushed into creating a global network of computers without making sure we knew what we were doing. The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a global open community dedicated to enabling organisations to develop, purchase, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security.

There are people and groups working in this area who are doing battle for all of us every day, yet many are unknown outside their own specialist areas. The proposed OWASP Awards could be used to thank and recognise outstanding contributions, identify those who are raising security awareness and highlight those supporting security initiatives such as promoting better practices.
