Projects

Yasca

This is a static analyzer (code scanner) that I wrote for detecting security vulnerabilities and other issues in program source code. It's released under a BSD license, and can be used in conjunction with various other open-source software.

Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)

OWASP is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of web-application security. I have been involved with OWASP in the past as an author of a few chapters of the Guide to Building Secure Web Applications. I have also donated Yasca to OWASP; it is currently an "Alpha Project". Most recently, I started a new project, called the OWASP Vulnerability Data Model Project, which aims to create a common data model for applications to share vulnerability information. OWASP is a great organization to get involved with; they have chapters all over the world and the mailing lists are usually very active.

The Archives

The Archives is my attempt to gather and maintain many of the applications and games that were popular in the early- to mid-1990s. All of the content is believed to be either freeware, open-source, or in the public domain.

Knowledge Base

This is a project to bring articles from Wikipedia into a more presentable and more easily readable form. We have approximately 700,000 articles currently available.

Graph Tracer

Graph Tracer is a free utility designed to help turn a graph or a chart back into data points. It works by allowing the user to trace the outline of the graph within a web-browser, and then download the resulting data.

Webskins

Webskins provide a method for web-developers to integrate multiple "skins" onto web-pages in a simple, low-impact way. More specifically, you can give user's the ability to choose a different CSS "on the fly" through a drop-down that shows up at the top of the web-page.

Deprecated Projects

Mathoodle

Mathoodle is a forum site dedicated to helping students prepare for standardized math tests, such as the New York State Regents. Students

researchr.us

Researchr.us is an archive of articles, research papers, reports, presentations, white papers, and other material. The goal is to be similar to be a one-stop-shop for finding these types of documents on the web. The site will be launched in early June 2011.

fo.ly

Fo.ly is my secure URL shortening service, similar to bit.ly and others. The main difference is that clicking on the URL takes the user to an intermediate page where the security of the site can be checked using various online tools. I will be expanding the functionality of fo.ly in the coming months, but the site is very functional now.
