Thanks for opening a topic for discussion, The last time I checked the OWASP egypt list had about 12 members.

If i may propose a topic as well , its the need to start a chapter meeting...this is the only way we can get the community more into it.

BTW in all the 100+ OWASP chapters worldwide only 10-15 are the active ones..usually in the big capitals. The only active chapter in the region is israel's ( more than 2000 members, mostly university students)

The only chapter meeting we had so far was in 2008 in alexandria and we had about 18-20 attendees. A meeting place in cairo or alex is no issue at all, its the speakers...so if you are interested lets share our presentations ideas and come up with an event program.

back at you.

Hi Mostafa, Hamdy and Sherif,
    Nice to meet you all, I wonder how many more members exist on this list that would like to participate and liven up the group. To answer your question Sherif, I'm not so sure there is one set of steps. Mostafa Siraj (a member on this list) has put together a nice introductory presentation (http://mostafasiraj.blogspot.com/). And there are a number of books out there on the subject. I'd say really what it comes down to is knowing what to look for. The most basic application security issue arises from the fact that you never know what the user is going to throw at you, and, depending on what language you're programming in and the context (meaning, is it a web app, is it a thick client app, is it a driver?), those could be different things. What do the rest of the list members think?


Hi there, I'm also here.

And as I'm interested in Web App Security, I'm taking the first steps, so why don't we talk about "Steps required to be proficient at web application security". What do you think?? what about you?? if there are any geeks on the list, it'd be marvelous to learn from them.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." --Nelson Mandela--
