WAFEC workshop at OWASP AppSec Research in Athens

The Web Application Firewall Evaluation Criteria (WAFEC) is a key specification used by the industry to measure the quality of WAFs and to compare different offerings in this field. As the current document is already 6 years old, we have started the WAFEC v2 project to update the document to current technologies and security challenges as well as to fix issues we identified in WAFEC over the years.

To that end, we would like to take advantage of the unique gathering of application security experts in Athens for OWASP AppSec Research to present the initiative, invite volunteers to participate and get your feedback on what’s needed in the update. If you are already involved in WAFEC, this would be a great opportunity to meet face to face other contributors.

The workshop will be held on Thursday July 12th at 6pm allowing you all to not miss any conference presentation (albeit lose your break between the presentations and evening social event).
