Just wanted to say hi to everybody,
After reading in the forums almost every day for quite some time now, I thought it is finally more then time to actually get registered 🙂 .
I’m really impressed by the helpfullness of the members here and wanted to say thank you for providing such a great and informative forum.
I am pretty much new to the it-security arena, having a strong interest in web application and network security. So, at the moment I am trying to improve my skills in TCP/IP, networking, programming, Backtrack & tools, setting up a virtual lab to play with … and so on … with the hope to land a job in pentesting or something related after I have finished my masters in information systems (unfortunatly in the master we don’t learn much about it-security). Any guidance or tipps on how you guys landed a job in it-security is more then welcome.
Due to what I have read here I also decided to sign up for the eCPPT at elearnsecurity.de (student+pro) shortly to set a solid basis to build upon. I am really looking forward to this hands on experience. After the eCPPT the next hurdle will be the OSCP. But well, first things first… or how one says: “learn to walk before you run” ;)…
I am looking forward to read more from you guys, share ideas and learn from each other in the future.
p.s. I wasn’t sure in which forum I can post this, because there is no “newbie post here ;D” forum. Because I am interested in pentesting I have posted here. So don, in case I posted in the wrong forum (maybe forum:other ??? ), I am sorry – feel free to move this post to the right location.

Welcome to EH-Net. Thanks for coming out of lurker status. 😉
You inspired me to create a new child board just for this type of thread. It’s been a long time coming, but I think’s it’s a great way to let the world know that we value new members and helping their careers progress in an ethical manner.

Great introduction! Like many others here, I see alot of similar ideas and likes with your path and your goals. The foundation that you are trying to build for yourself is, I believe, the best first step one can take. I also am hoping to complete the eCPPT, it really looks and sounds like a great course.
Welcome to the group!
