I had another half-baked idea for a 2009 project and wanted to get
reactions from others. Many folks are aware that Barack Obama raised a
lot of money for his Presidential campaign via his website. Likewise,
his website was under attack. What would we think if we as members of
OWASP helped senators, congressman, etc in a non-partisan way audit
their websites at no charge and do so in exchange for an OWASP badge at
the bottom of their site.
 
We all make fun of those websites that display badges indicating 128-bit
SSL but need to noodle whether the badging strategy could work for OWASP
as a way to spread brand in a controlled manner. Bringing a higher-level
badging strategy would be beneficial to the industry. Imagine a badge
indicating that they are OWASP Top Ten compliant where upon clicking it,
we could explain security to average users...
