The OWASP collaborative way to leverage software security mindset has seduced me since 2007, when I got involved in the OWASP Top 10 translation to PT-BR. Since then, I've been trying to give my cents to community, and the WebGoat 5.1 translation to PT-BR is one of them.
I'm a professor at Universidade de Brasilia. I reached the Electrical Engineering PhD degree in 2009. At that phase I could employ a collaborative research with the Centre for Research in Information Architecture (CPAI) at Universidade de Brasilia and the Security System Engineering Group at Florida Atlantic University.
