Can you elaborate? I've used OWASP activities for CPEs
for ISC^2 for years, including my development contributions
to ESAPI. Are you talking about some formal program that
we designate being worth so many CPE credits ahead of time
and then have a formal sign-off for ISC^2, SANS, etc.?
As far as how many CPE credits you get for a specific
activity, I think that varies by which organization you are
submitting them to.
