Hello everyone,

1- My name is Mohammed Aldoub, a Computer Engineer and security
enthusiast in Kuwait. I am developing Kuwait's national
smartcard-based authentication gateway for all citizens, and
developing Kuwait's Cryptographic Service provider that allows
citizens to digitally sign and encrypt emails and documents. I also do
independent security & privacy research & education for the public
(usually in Twitter and my blog, Pirates of the Silicon Oasis).

I am deeply interested in web application security, as my projects
(authentication..etc) heavily require it. I have attached a CV for
reference and more info.

2- Kuwait is lacking greatly in the field of web application security,
both in implementation and education. Web app sec in Kuwait means
installing firewalls! Many high-value targets are vulnerable to the
most basic types of vulnerabilities, and therefore resolute and
unyielding need exists to teach people about web application security.

I am also deeply entwined in user privacy and protection, as I have
translated many privacy technologies to Arabic (Tor project, Guardian
project apps), and I am preparing the official Arabic Tor blog to help
people in the Middle East protect themselves.

Among people known in the public scene in Kuwait regarding web
security advocation, I am fairly known in Kuwait's geekosphere, and I
am an active practitioner of web app sec everyday, hence I decided to
restart the OWASP Kuwait chapter.

3- Please find attached a photo of my written acknowledgment that I
have in fact read the chapter handbook.

Thank you!
