The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501(c)(3) worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software. Our mission is to make software security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true software security risks.

2012 Security Blitz

OWASP is starting a monthly security blitz where we will rally the security community around a particular topic. The topic may be a vulnerability, defensive design approach, technology or even a methodology. All members of the security community are encouraged to write blog posts, articles, patches to tools, videos etc in the spirit of the current monthly topic. Our goal is to show a variety of perspectives on the topic from the different perspectives of builders, breakers and defenders.
