OWASP September Event

| Monday 22nd September
Talks start: 19:15
| Venue Location: UCC (WGB G.14)|
The next OWASP Cork Chapter meeting is taking place on Monday September 22nd in UCC (WGB G.14) at 7PM.
We would like to treat all attendees to some beer and pizza after the talks in the Woolshed bar (Mardyke - http://www.woolshedbaa.com/cork/)
Hope to see you there.
There are two talks lined up:
Talk 1: Introduction to OWASP ZAP
Overview of the OWASP ZAP tool.
The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications.
It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing.
ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.
Talk 2: Mark Denihan - OWASP Security Shepherd
The OWASP Security Shepherd project has been designed and implemented with the aim of fostering and improving security awareness among a varied skill set demographic. Shepherd covers the OWASP Top Ten web app risks and has recently been injected with totally new content to cover the OWASP Top Ten Mobile risks as well. Many of these levels include insufficient mitigations and protections to these risks, such as blacklist filters, atrocious encoding schemes, barbaric security mechanisms and poor security configuration. The modules have been crafted to provide not only a challenge for a security novice, but security professionals as well. In this presentation we're going to look at the Shepherd platform itself from both a learning and teaching perspective. Some of Shepherd's lessons and challenges will be demonstrated and we'll also walkthrough how easy it is to stand up a Security Shepherd instance and how it can be tailored to suit any web/mobile app sec teaching environments.
