Hi Folks,

If you've ever felt that you had so much more web application security
knowledge to give to the world than you've had a chance to do so far,
this is your opportunity.  We will have 12 1 hour Consultant Corner
sessions (6 in each of 2 small meeting rooms) that you can sign up for
to answer questions in your stated area of expertise, from whatever BASC
attendees come thru the door. Attendees will sign up for 15 minute
sessions at the conference on a signup sheet outside each meeting room
(kind of like signing up for time on your favorite Stairmaster at the


This is an experiment in knowledge sharing. The idea is that a focused
15 minute conversation with a knowledgeable person can be very efficient
to clear up a lot of misconceptions, explain some exploit, steer someone
in a better direction, explain some technical problem etc. Vendors are
free to sign up, but in keeping with the OWASP charter, these sessions
must be product neutral. Products and technologies that address a
particular problem can be talked about, compared etc. but we don't want
these to be simply side demos of products. Every vendor I've had at my
OWASP chapter meetings over the last 5.75 years has been very respectful
of OWASP's neutral stance, and I'm sure we can continue that tradition
while still providing useful knowledge to the attendees that sign up.
It's up to you to decide what area you want to answer questions about.


If you're interested, email Bill Terwilliger
[bill_terwilliger at harvard.edu]. Bill is the C3 (Consultant Corner
Coordinator). He will assign you a time slot and room (you can have up
to 2 slots) and record your area of expertise. The slots are an hour
each from 10 - 4. If you have any questions please email Bill and I.
