A working group is now forming under the leadership of James Landis to produce the 1.0 draft of the OWASP Periodic Table of Vulnerabilities project. 

The goal of this project is to identify the ideal solution target for known web application vulnerability classes as a first step toward eliminating many classes of vulnerabilities altogether. The project is currently targeting web standards, perimeter technologies, and frameworks. The first public release of the project will represent a multi-industry consensus about the ideal solution target for each vulnerability.

If you would like to have a hand in shaping the future of web application technologies toward solving vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting and SQL injection forever, your contributions would be greatly appreciated! We are especially seeking candidates to represent the perspectives of several key industry groups, as outlined in the project roadmap below. If you are interested in keeping an eye on the project discussion, please join the mailing list. If you would like to contribute as a member of the working group, please email the project leader with a very short bio, a list of the industry groups you might represent, a few sentences about why you'd like to join the group, and a rough estimate of the amount of time you could dedicate to the project per month.
