OWASP Secure Configuration Guide
Many projects have "Frequently Asked Questions" documents or pages. However, the point of such a document is not the questions. The point of a document like this are the answers. The document contains the answers that people would otherwise find themselves giving over and over again. The idea is that rather than laboriously compose and post the same answers repeatedly, people can refer to this page with pre-prepared answers. Use this space to communicate your projects 'Frequent Answers.'
How can I participate in your project?
All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.
If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?
Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator.
Project will help those looking for configuration issues when facing a new web application / framework, and at the same time let developers have all information of correct configuration settings (which are not always perfect by default) for common systems. Cases may vary from how to configure Drupal in order not to let unauthorized attacker to enumerate current users to how to protect your config files from being downloaded to how to forbid unauthorized firmware upload for your device.
The idea is to create the unified source of knowledge (like Testing Guide), where all information will be accessible in one place. As new systems appear and new features are being added, the project will be continuously developed. Any penetration tester/administrator/security consultant can contribute when meeting new (yet undocumented) system.
Initially planned chapters: - Web servers - Frameworks - Network devices / web panels - ... more to come
This page is where you need to place your legacy project template page if your project was created before October 2013. To edit this page you will need to edit your project information template. You can typically find this page by following this address and substituting your project name where it says "OWASP_Example_Project". When in doubt, ask the OWASP Projects Manager.
