Subject: New OWASP Project: OWASP Hackademic Challenges


Hi Paulo,


After the very positive feedback that we received during the Summit, we
would like to turn the Hackademic Challenges into an OWASP project.


Project leaders will be Anastasios (cc-ed) and me.


Details follow:


Project Name - OWASP Hackademic Challenges

Project purpose / overview: 
The Hackademic Challenges is an open source project that can be used to test
and improve one's knowledge of web application security.
The Hackademic Challenges implement realistic scenarios with known
vulnerabilities in a safe, controllable environment. Users can attempt to
discover and exploit these vulnerabilities in order to learn important
concepts of information security through the attacker's perspective.
They have been especially designed for use in a clasroom environment where
they have been proved a valuable educational tool. Using hackademic
challenges students have the chance to experience application security in a
realistic envornment, something that triggers their interest and provokes a
lot of interesting discussions.
The Hackademic Challenges are currently used in several Universities and
have received very positive feedback from both professors and students.


Project Roadmap: 


V1.0 out in late Q1 2011
V1.1 improved interface: out Q2 2011
V2.0 seperate teacher-student interfaces: late 2011.
V2.1 interface and process to receive additional challenges: Q1 2012
