Working Session Team: Jeff Williams
Working Sessions Organization Model: "Everybody is a Participant" or "Invited Participants + Attendees"
Objectives:

  • Discuss current Top10 structure and objectives
  • Define methodology to collect attacks statistics

Projected Outcomes:

  • Propose the revised OWASP Top 10 for 2009

OWASP Strategic Planning

OWASP Education Project

Working Session Lead: Sebastien Deleersnyder
Working Session Team: Martin Knobloch + TBD
Working Sessions Organization Model: "Everybody is a Participant"
Objectives:

  • 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?
  • How to create lessons, classes, courses from OWASP project material?

Additional Details: There is plenty of knowledge available inside the OWASP community. This is spread via the OWASP AppSec Conferences and the local chapter meetings, not to forget the books available now. Another, very important way to distribute the available knowledge is to teach! In plenty presentations knowledge is put into slides to share it. The next step is to reuse the information of those presentations and create training material. In a Boot Camp for example, it's not only about telling how to break stuff, but let the attendees break it themselves. Also let them fix the problems, with guidance of the experienced!

Projected Outcomes:

  • Educational Support on Winter of Code 2008
  • Guildeline about creating training material

Draft notes

Note: there needs to be a 1h session on the 1st day of working sessions (Tue) to explain the rules of the game, how everything will work and what is expected from each WS (Working Session)

  • Working Sessions can meet simultaneously or by some method of time allotment (depends on scheduling and priority)
  • Open membership, first order of business is to confirm chair and secretary of group (We can get this setup and discuss on the lists now, so we are running when we get to the Summit)
  • Dinis, Paulo suggested that working groups will produce OWASP Initiatives, Statements, Decisions.
  • OWASP Initiatives, Statements and Decisions can be distributed in electronic form prior to the Summit or a Working Group assembly.
    • Additionally, time should be allocated for anything new at the actual Working Group assembly. (Again, we can get the ball rolling on this now and have discussion and motion at Summit).
    • Simple Majority to Pass Motions (I can distribute a Roberts Rules of Order - Lite prior to the meeting to the chair)
  • Board Reserves Veto and Tabling Authority at the Summit
  • Working Groups:
    • OWASP Top 10 2009
    • OWASP Governance (e.g. International guidelines, Board member confirmation)
    • Projects (e.g. Organize and rate projects, Development plans,Documentation
    • Chapter Governance (e.g. Budgets, Activities)
    • OWASP Future (e.g. Action Plan for 2009, Investment recommendation, 5 year Outlook)
    • Web Vulnerability Assessment (Code Review/Testing)
    • Global Community Outreach (PR Issues, Pro Bono opportunities)
    • Web Technology (e.g. Browser security wishlist, architectural recommendations, technology recommendations)

Agenda

  • Opening Statement
  • Motions on the table (1st, 2nd, Vote)
  • New Business (new motions, statements for record)
  • Closing Statement
  • As the first ever of this format, we should invite working group chairs and discuss a potential list of motions to get them started (specifically for

financially related motions, e.g. Dinis mentioned $200K USD investment plan as an example in an earlier e-mail). What kinds of things to start with. Then they can put the ideas to a list or lists for discussion prior to the meeting.


Working Sessions outcomes

  • OWASP Initiates: "Spend xyz on Project yyy" , "Plan to organize all OWASP tools / books" , "Stategy to organize and rate ALL OWASP projects", "6 month Development plan for EASPI"
  • Public Statements: "Here is the OWASP Top 10 2009", "This is what OWASP's position is on xxx" , "Browser security wish-list for Browsers (IE, Mozilla, Safari and Opera)"
  • OWASP Decisions: "Action plan for OWASP in 2009", "Hire x developers to support projects", "next 200k USD investment plan", "OWASP governance and vote of 6th Board Member", "Internaltional OWASP non-profit organizations guidelines",

Summit

  • Should a Board Member chair?
  • Agenda
    • Opening Statement (this is the first Summit, so this is a special thing)
    • Overall Summit meeting can be an informational meeting about Working group motions. Board can approve, veto or table motions from Working

Groups. However, if doing this at the Summit, there may be controversial issues where the Board rejects a motion. Each working group has a spot on this agenda.

    • OWASP Motions not from Working Groups, allocate time for this.
    • Closing Statement
