This is where you need to add your more robust project description. A project description should outline the purpose of the project, how it is used, and the value it provides to application security. Ideally, project descriptions should be written in such a way that there is no question what value the project provides to the software security community. This section will be seen and used in various places within the Projects Portal. Poorly written project descriptions therefore detract from a project’s visibility, so project leaders should ensure that the description is meaningful.

The Documentation Project Template is simply a sample project that was developed for instructional purposes that can be used to create default project pages for a Documentation project.  After copying this template to your new project, all you have to do is follow the instructions in red, replace the sample text with text suited for your project, and then delete the sections in red.  Doing so should make it clearer to both consumers of this project, as well as OWASP reviewers who are trying to determine if the project can be promoted to the next category.  The information requested is also intended to help Project Leaders think about the roadmap and feature priorities, and give guidance to the reviews as a result of that effort.
 
  
Creating a new set of project pages from scratch can be a challenging task.  By providing a sample layout, with instructional text and examples, the OWASP Documentation Project Template makes it easier for Project Leaders to create effective security projects and hence helps promote security.

A project leader is the individual who decides to lead the project throughout its lifecycle. The project leader is responsible for communicating the project’s progress to the OWASP Foundation, and he/she is ultimately responsible for the project’s deliverables. The project leader must provide OWASP with his/her real name and contact e-mail address for his/her project application to be accepted, as OWASP prides itself on the openness of its products, operations, and members.

Instructions are in RED text and should be removed from your document by deleting the text with the span tags. This document is intended to serve as an example of what is required of an OWASP project wiki page. The text in red serves as instructions, while the text in black serves as an example. Text in black is expected to be replaced entirely with information specific to your OWASP project.

OWASP Documentation Project Template


The main deliverable of this project would be an assessment of the current privacy protection that is offered by popular web browsers for mobile devices (Android, iOS) and desktops. We will document amongst other things the following: a. browser details: name, version number, underlying OS

b. Protection against tracking mechanism, Tracking mechanism used (other than cookie)

c. Capability and usability in removing the tracking mechanism

d. Capability of the browser to show/list the data from the tracking mechanism

e. Presence of addons that list/delete the data

Description

This project would look at different browsers that are used by general population and understand the tracking mechanisms (other than cookies) employed by the browser. These tracking mechanisms are not visible like cookies and need to be explored by getting into developer tools on the browser This sort of tracking has an impact on privacy and to some extent on security. This project would also look at how these tracking mechanisms can be removed or at least how the contents of these tracking mechanisms can be deleted

Roadmap


Q3, 2019

  • Start of the project
  • Identify team members
  • Design testbed (use of vms, use of phones)
  • Identify different browsers and their versions for testing

Q4, 2019

  • Implement testbed
  • Install browsers on VMS
  • Commence testing and document the results
  • Publicize the results on the wiki

The plan to start by replicating the experiments/methodology that is found here: Belloro, S., & Mylonas, A. (2018). I know what you did last summer: New persistent tracking mechanisms in the wild. IEEE Access, 6, 52779-52792. , and has been presented by Alexios to the London Chapter meeting in November 2018. Then, we plan to expand the work by including other tracking technologies and third-party software (i.e. addons) that can be used to enhance the protection that is offered by current browsers.
