AppSensor Writers - We are writing v2 of the AppSensor book and need help from the software community.  Can anyone help identify or tell us about real-world examples of AppSensor (application-integrated attack detection and response) or AppSensor-like functionality in any type of software application?  Please sign up via the initiatives page if interested.  

MediaWiki Ninja:  Development Guide 2013 Project Assistance Needed - The OWASP Development Guide 2013 would like to have the different versions of the Guide available via a drop down menu similar to MSDN (say compare the different versions of ASP.NET API) or Technet (say compare the versions of Windows), so that we can develop and translate the OWASP Development Guide 2013 here at OWASP without disturbing existing content.  MediaWiki experience is essential!!!!!

AppSensor Cover Photographer - we are writing v2 of the AppSensor project book and need a photograph for the front cover ... somewhat like those used on the Testing Guide or Developer's Guide of an insect in color.  No photo library images, or images taken from other places without permission please.

Help Wanted for OWASP ZAP project - various roles - the OWASP ZAP project is currently recruiting for various volunteer roles to help support the current development team with their project milestones.  We have many different roles available ranging from developer roles to graphic design and marketing.  This is an excellent opportunity to work on a high profile OWASP project, while working in a supportive environment where help is readily available.  Check out the Get Involved section of the Zap project page
