Helping government is a noble idea.

However the scope is very wide spread, deep, global as well
as cyber/IT security is very broad subject.

As OWASP community is one of the many avenues for them, 
we have to inform appropriate channels that experts
and help is available.

Thoughts ....

Hi?

Good suggestion?

FICCI, isacaMumbai and Mumbai Police have taken a similar initiative to
secure wi-fi connections.

Vijay Mukhi of FICCI? educating students of various colleges of Mumbai
and Pune on how to secure wi-fi connections ?..then students will pass on
this knowledge to others and secure wi-fi connections in their locality
?.

Hi Darmesh,



This is really a good idea. Awareness is required to stop cyber crime. At
the same time we have to take care that some one will not miss use it.
Security is kind of weapon which can be used for good or bad cause
simultaneously. Practically going everywhere will not be possible I think,
but we can prepare best practices for securing information, network and
publish it to maximum number of bogs, print pamphlets and distribute to
colleges and general people. We will mention our contact details on this
pamphlets so interested people can arrange seminar for us.

My experience regarding spreading awareness is that, people get afraid
instead of feeling secured after know how they will be hacked.

This is just my thought.



Thanks,

Ashish Bobade

Dear Dharmesh and Yash.

Thank you.

I am working at NASSCOM and currently looking after the Security Initiatives.

I agree that the Media needs to be educated. But not in securing wi-fi but ethics and the way information is put up by them. With the recent developments most of the knowledge which has disseminated through papers are confusing and misguiding people.

We do various activities for school and colleges, police and coporate.

Security is a mindset problem. 

Well, I am not authorized to speak with media. We have our corporate manager looking after that. But i request both of you to do a story line and publish in some paper if they are willing too. I read an article from yash and vineet on rediff it is fairly good.

Best Regards,

Hi,



There definitely needs to be awareness in-order to resolve a problem
like Wireless In-Security. However, I think that tying it down to
terrorism is pointless. We can secure every single wireless connection
in the country personally and the terrorists will just learn to use TOR
or some other secure medium.



In-regards to awareness, I think we need to focus more on getting
in-touch with the media than colleges. We could easily reach many more
people as a result of this. Possible come up with step-by-step detailed
instructions on how to easily secure commonly used routers such as the
Linksys WRT54G, DSL 502T and whatever else is commonly provided by
internet providers.



Another approach could be buy utilizing NASSCOM's position in the
industry to push internet providers to actually have these routers
secure-on-delivery.



I put up an article about the securing home wireless networks a while
back and can be found at:
http://www.yashkadakia.com/2008/09/securing-your-home-wireless-network.html
(apologies for the plug).



Bottom-line: I will be happy to help in anyway possible.

Hi,

  

I was just re-looking at the blasts that have happened around the
country and connect with the broken wireless networks been attacked. 

The immediate thing that probably comes to all of security gurus is
"Wireless security should have been done obviously".....

  

Essentially, I believe that for security experts in the industry, there
are more malicious attacks possible which we all concentrate based on
attackers trends. 

  

  Just a thought.
Can OWASP Mumbai community members help NASSCOM and Cyber Crime Cell
fight against growing cyber attacks?

  I think if we all
can collaborate and share our knowledge with these guys, we can work at
best helping the government in addition to working for the security
industry.

  

  Also, I was
wondering, if anyone has contacts with Engineering and Management
Colleges / Universities, one of us in the community should go and have
an awareness session with these colleges. 

  

  Discussions,
thoughts and actions are welcome..

  

  Thanks &
Regards,

  Dharmesh Mehta
