*DATE & TIME
*September 5th, 6:00PM

*This month's topic, by popular vote (and by that I mean, a couple of
votes) is* OWASP ASVS Project <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/ASVS>. We
can discuss other topics of interest if time permits.
>From the OWASP project page:
The primary aim of the *OWASP Application Security Verification Standard
(ASVS) Project* is to normalize the range in the coverage and level of
rigor available in the market when it comes to performing Web application
security verification using a commercially-workable open standard. The
standard provides a basis for testing application technical security
controls, as well as any technical security controls in the environment,
that are relied on to protect against vulnerabilities such as Cross-Site
Scripting (XSS) and SQL injection. This standard can be used to establish a
level of confidence in the security of Web applications. "
*Our speaker for September's meeting is Dave Wichers.
