Two OWASP notes today
1. I know some people in Hartford read this blog, James McGovern is starting up a new OWASP chapter in Hartford area. Read all about it. Excellent lineup - starting with Gary McGraw (More). If you are in the area check it out, knowing James this chapter will push OWASP in a new direction, will be fun to see what comes out of it.
2. OWASP is starting to get some more play outside of security geekdom
Linux.com has an article - Building Secure Web Applications with OWASP
and this from Tom Brennan on OWASP on tv (the fact that Hollywood has _not_ cast Dinis Cruz in a starring role is beyond me)
Watch the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/jinxpuppy (over 6000 views already)
I highly encourage you to TIVO/DVR this (there are 2 episodes) the 1st at
11:00pm and the 2nd at 11:30pm
watch it live!
If this show gets picked up, in Episode #4 will have web application
hacking and OWASP mentioned as a source to find details on secure
development, testing guides and more! ;)
