> Hi,
> It was suggested during the summit for the board to make a clearly
> motivated statement on OWASP certifications.
> Hereby a first draft:
> For Board Vote: position on OWASP Certification
> Numerous times the question on certification comes up at summits and
> on the leaders list.
> Each time we have a big debate if it makes sense for OWASP to start
> certification of e.g. developers, testers, applications, etc...
> This position vote is a clear statement from the OWASP Board on OWASP
> Certifications.
> It also represents the opinion of the majority of the people present
> on the OWASP Summit in Portugal (2008) and the Summit in DC (2009).
> OWASP should focus its efforts on becoming and staying THE body of
> knowledge covering web application security. OWASP will however not
> start its own certifications or promote other certifications.
> If other organisations wish to start certifications based on OWASP
> material, we welcome this: as long as this honours the current open
> license model of OWASP and does not abuse the OWASP brand for
> commercial reasons.
> Other stuff/clarifications I should add?
> regards
> Seba
