There are "discussion" pages (also known as "talk" pages) associated with every article at OWASP. You can leave questions, comments, or ideas on these pages for other authors to review. These pages are a good place to propose ideas or discuss possible approaches to problems. You should "sign" your comments by adding four tilde characters (~~~~) after your comment. Thanks!

Application Security Students

I am Yogesh - student, I heard about OWASP's & intrested to go into application info security.As it is a vast field of expertize. Tell me how a studend with specialized MBA-IT background can fit in.

The best way to learn application security is by doing it. Check
out the OWASP student projects for some ideas. It's a great way
to learn. OWASP 22:20, 22 July 2006 (EDT)

What basic knowledge should I have before choosing "Threat Risk modeling" as my career. (Looking for detailed feedback ) Thank you

You need a basic knowledge of application security principles,
threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures. Check the
OWASP Honeycomb Project for the basic
information you need. You should also read about the process of threat modeling.
There are a few books on the subject, including "Threat Modeling" and
"Secure Development Lifecycle" from the Microsoft Press. Note - it's not yet
clear whether "Threat Risk modeling" is actually a career yet. There are clear
careers as an "application security architect" and "application security tester"
(including cod review).
