Original Project Brief

Executive Summary

I am proposing a new project that will educate current OWASP LiveCD users and assist in generating more LiveCD users. The education will be conducted by creating documentation and media using popular tutorial techniques such as Challenges, text tutorials, and video tutorials. The tutorials will help guide all types of users through using the OWASP LiveCD and its tools. After the completion of this project we propose that all of the media be added to the LiveCD so that users have a single all encompassing package to expand their knowledge of application security. This project will effectively bring together documentation for many OWASP projects into one deliverable that can be used at conferences, trade shows, and by educators. The key to promoting a live security distribution is helping the community learn to love every aspect of it. Objective

The objective is to produce multiple quality instructor led video tutorials and text tutorials that educate users on using the LiveCD and tools within. This will also include in assisting to make sure that the LiveCD is not only an array of tools but a powerful medium for education.


  • 5 Full screen video tutorials on using the LiveCD and the OWASP tools on it.
  • 5 Text tutorials using the LiveCD and the OWASP tools on it.
  • 3 Guided challenge scenarios that help a user learn more about the LiveCD.
  • A Morphix module with all educational data included to be added to the LiveCD.

Each deliverable will be OWASP branded so that any distribution ( With OWASP approval )of the material will help bring in new OWASP users.
