[Owasp-board] URGENT - Fwd: [WebSand] Letter of Interest from OWASP

Can you explain this more?  Why all the cloak-and-dagger?  Is this an OWASP
Project?  Or do they just want our logo?  Will it be open source and
consistent with our other principles?


I think exploring sandbox technology is a good idea and something OWASP can
get behind, but I have to point out that every time people implement a
fine-grained access control mechanism (CMW, Java sandbox, .NET sandbox, lots
of others) - the problem is managing complexity, not the security mechanism.

We are supporting this research from different chapters. I will also synch
this with GEC and GIC.

Can I create a letter that supports the research from OWASP Foundation

As I informed you on Friday, the WebSand consortium (consisting of the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Chalmers University, the University of
Passau, Siemens AG and SAP) is currently submitting a research proposal
to improve web application security by adopting a server-driven
sandboxing approach. More information about the project is included in

Each of the participating countries has already ongoing collaborations
with the local OWASP chapters: KUL with OWASP Belgium, Chalmers with
OWASP Sweden and Passau and Siemens with OWASP Germany.

I would like to ask the support of OWASP as well as of the Belgium OWASP
chapter by means of a letter of interest. (The other partners will do
the same for OWASP Sweden and OWASP Germany.) In this letter, OWASP
could express their interest in the projects results, and explains
possible dissemination cooperation. For inspiration, I already included
a possible template.

Because of a tight submission schedule, I would need your letters on
Wednesday the latest to ensure a timely submission. I'm very sorry for
this late rush.

Kind regards,
