Talk: Hacking Eye-Fi Cards

Eye-Fi cards ingeniously embed a WiFi transmitter within an SD card. They are very convenient for transferring pictures from your camera to your computer. But are there hidden security risks?

Speaker: Paul Johnston

Talk: OWASP Cornucopia

Microsoft's Escalation of Privilege (EoP) threat modelling card game has been refreshed into a new version more suitable for common web applications, and aligned with OWASP advice and guides. "OWASP Cornucopia - Ecommerce Web Application Edition" will be presented and used to demonstrate how it can help software architects and developers identify security requirements from the OWASP Secure Coding Practices - Quick Reference Guide. He will also provide a brief introduction about how to contribute ideas and content to OWASP projects, and how to start a project.

Speaker: Colin Watson

Colin is an application security consultant, working for Blackfoot, based in London. He was a member of the former OWASP Global Industry Committee, and is currently project leader for the OWASP Codes of Conduct and OWASP Cornucopia projects, co-leader for the OWASP AppSensor project, and wrote the Application Logging Cheat sheet. He is now working on the new AppSensor Guide which is due for publication in 2014.
