Not Making a Statement is a Statement in its Own Right [AUDIO]

Earlier this week, OWASP released a statement after an internal debate regarding recent allegations that RSA had weakened its encryption while receiving $10 million dollars from the NSA. There was heated discussion about whether or not to publish a statement. Would it be perceived as political? What is OWASP’s responsibility when it comes to defending the trustworthiness of software?
As part of the OWASP 24/7 Podcast Series, I spoke with Tobias Gondrom and Eoin Keary about that debate. Their premise is that this is not a political statement, but a clarification to keep OWASP focused on its original mission.
