Hello Owasp San Fransisco and Owasp San Jose

Dinis Cruz from the Owasp .Net Project.

In principle I will be in San Fransisco for the week starting the 19th 
of June 2006 and wanted to see if you guys are interested in organizing 
an Owasp Chapter meeting similar to the one we did recently in London, see:

    - Owasp-London Chapter meeting: "Web Application Firewalls (WAF): 
Where do they add value and who should be using them" 
<http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=10209024&forum_id=40284>
    - London WAF event and HacmeBank 
<http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=10232868&forum_id=40284>
    - [Fwd: London WAF event - Additional vulnerabilities] 
<http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=10239385&forum_id=40284>
    - Review of Owasp-London Chapter meeting on WAF (Web Application 
Firewalls) 
<http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=10279474&forum_id=40284>

I think that it would be a good idea to organize a similar event (the 
WAF vendors said that they would be happy to participate in more events 
like this, and this time around they would have more time to prepare it 
:) with the added variation that we would also get several WAS (Web 
Application Scanners) to join it and use their tools to attack the 
target website (before and after the WAFs deployment).

What do you think?

If you want to do it, then we should start working on this event sooner 
rather than later.

Best regards
