Hello Thibault,

First of all, thank you for volunteering to lead an OWASP Project.  It is
with volunteers like yourself that OWASP continues to succeed in making
application security visible.

Regarding your proposed leadership of this project, I am carbon copying the
OWASP Global Projects Committee (GPC) so that it can have the opportunity to
look at the roadmap you have sent and provide feedback. If none opposition
raises from the GPC, as I expect, I will set your project up.

Meanwhile, we recommend that every project leader or contributor creates a
wiki account, fills in there with Resume/Curriculum Vitae, Wiki
Contributions and Email Address. Those elements will help us with building a
proper idea of their technical profile and will facilitate the contact
within OWASP contributors. Please see below the tutorial¹s first paragraph
and an example.



I will get back to you soon with more info and details.
Many thanks, best regards,
- Paulo

Subject:  Presenting a new project to the OWASP : Naxsi, a WAF for NGINX


I would like to introduce a new project to the OWASP : NAXSI.
Naxsi is a Web Application Firewall module for Nginx. It's different
from most WAFs, because it relies on a positive model, rather than the
usual negative model. The project is still very young (alpha v0.2), even
if I've been working on it (and testing it) since a few months already.
You can find more details about it here : naxsi.googlecode.com.

You will find attached the small requested presentation of the project,
as well as replies to the submission process.
