Stefan Esser has officially announced the Call for Papers for the Month of PHP Security happening in May 2010. The MoPS is an effort to both close security issues with PHP that could cause developers and their applications problems as well as gather information to help developers write better code from the start.
Today the call for papers was released. Everyone from the PHP and security community is invited to produce quality articles/advisories about PHP security topics/bugs and submit them to the CFP committee.
If you're interested in submitting your ideas and articles for the Call for Papers, you'll find complete details on the PHP-Security.org site. A committee of four will be selecting the articles from those submitted. The site also includes a few suggested topics such as: a new vulnerability in PHP, an explanation of a complicated vulnerability, how to stage attacks on encrypted PHP systems or the release of a new open source security tool.
Prizes will be awarded for what the committee sees as the best published material including a first place prize of 1000 Euro, a Syscan ticket and a license for CodeScan PHP all the way down to an Amazon coupon for 65 USD/50 EUR. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
