[Owasp-leaders] Attack Surface Analysis

I like to see "Stories", with a fairly straightforward path from start to
middle to finish. In a cheat sheet, this means a short story amount of
exposition and character development.

*Why* - what use case does this cheat sheet apply to. It's currently called
Introduction, but I think it should answer the question - "why should I
care about defining and measuring the attack surface".

The *How *is answered fully, and that requires little attention, but as
it's a process, a simple process diagram would be nice.

The *What *is currently an abstract list, so an example illustrating the
point using a use case that'd we all be familiar with; something like a
Fandango or Expedia type of site - i.e. defining the critical data assets
(cc data, booking details, etc) and critical flows - finding something,
making a booking, checking out, customer service).

The *Who* is not really answered. Who would undertake this task? In my
personal view, this is a security architect and pen tester, but developers
should be able to self-assess.

Other than that, I think it's a fine final draft that I would be proud of
if I had written it. Good work, fellas!
