Hello and greetings from Croatia!

OWASP leaders told me I should introduce myself to the OWASP leaders
mailing list first (before I start posting), so I'm doing it.

I started out OWASP Croatian chapter few months ago. We had initial
meeting. I would like to start meetings on quarterly basis first, and
then through time to make it more frequently as we attract more members.
I managed to organize that OWASP Croatian meetings are held in national
CERT, so I guess that's good place to attract interested people. And I
hope it's according to OWASP rules?

I'm standard security consultant (CISSP, CISA, MBCI, CEH certified)
working on web security among other things. I have contributed to nmap,
nessus, openvas and snort in the past and I hope I will contribute to
OWASP too.

I have already two project suggestions to start for OWASP myself:

1) favicon enumeration project: database of the most known favicon.ico
MD5 and their software representations. I have already done most of the
things, but have to wait 3 more days (estimation to complete) to crawl
everything I wanted to have good statistical results (I'm already
crawling the Internet for past 2-3 weeks). You can read more about it here:

I'm ready to "donate" it to the OWASP project (software to crawl and
database) as long as nmap, openvas or any other open source software can
take advantage of it without any special license or fee.

2) web threat project: to monitor evil requests specific to web
protocols and to have web threat level. Very similar to (but for web):
http://www.dshield.org/

Looking forward to work with OWASP leaders! ;)
