<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:#1F497D'>We believe that building the
right controls into web application frameworks will drive more secure
applications. Our intent is to move this effort beyond documentation and into
real code &#8211; starting with building many of these requirements to the Django
framework or a spin-off. This is a particularly important opportunity for
students and researchers who wish to make a real impact to secure application
development. &nbsp;We are interested in reaching out the Django community to get
their buy-in on this. If you have contacts with their developers please let us
know.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
