Hi all,
the new OWASP Testing Project v3 is started!

We want to review the OWASP Testing Project v2 and create the OWASP
Testing Guide v3 by the end of next August.

Problem to be Addressed:
many additional sections should be updated and reviewed. Also
additional areas of discovery should be addressed. the guide currently
covers alot but could cover much more.

Benefit to OWASP Members and Community:
A reference to the testing community that is updated by the community.
Should provide many of the answers one would look for when testing an
application for security.

Goals and Deliverables:
The guide to be updated with a defined list of topics and the current
guide reviewed.A revised and updated Testing Guide which shall be more
extensive thanever before.

*** I phase: create the Index ***

application testing, and can spare a few hours a week, please contact

Guide. If you are interested, please contact me.
This is the draft of the new index:
