Subject: [WASC-WAFEC] Vote on making WAFEC a WASC/OWASP project
> Hi All,
> As promised I am opening the vote for making WAFEC a joined WASC and OWASP
> The proposed guidelines for this more are (updated based on comments from the
> group and WASC officers):
> · The name, when affiliation is used, would be "The WASC/OWASP Web
> Application Firewall Evaluation Criteria".
> · Governance would be mutual, i.e. any decision about the project
> which is not within the project team itself has to be agreed upon by the OWASP
> GPC (i.e. Project Committee) and by the WASC officers. The project leader is
> the arbitrator in case of a conflict (this change is based on a request by
> Jeremiah Grossman, WASC founder).
> · Participation is open for all and does not require being an OWASP or
> a WASC member.
> Vote Yes/No. Voting is open until Nov 19th EOD (American Samoa, that is
> UTC-11, time zone)
> Now for my voting pitch:
> I think the change is important and would benefit WAFEC tremendously. I would
> go a step further it is needed to ensure we actually succeed:
> · Making it happen we need more people. I now have two chapter
> assigned and many are still waiting. Joining hands with OWASP will make
> joining the project appealing to many more people.
> · Outreach people in the application security community have heard
> about OWASP, and joining hands with OWASP would enable leveraging this to
> reach more people. This includes chapters outreach (from Khartoum, The Sudan
> to Omaha, Nebraska) as well as an official room in local and global
> · Vendor image - WASC is perceived as a "vendors' organization" and
> the list of participants in WAFEC certainly proves that. Affiliation with
> OWASP will
> help popularize WAFEC also with customers, which I think is very good for the
> I must say I think it would be hard for me to complete the project
> successfully otherwise.
