NOTICE

Many of you have written to us asking about the requirement for a paper in our CFP hosted on EasyChair. Due to an unforseen change in the way EasyChair works, you are no longer able to configure a submission to require only an abstract as we thought we had done, and done in the past. To be clear, we are ***NOT*** requiring papers with our CFP submissions. As we have already started the CFP and can not move the platform we ask that anyone who does not have a paper simply submit their abstract as a .txt file to satisfy the systems requirement to upload a paper.


We apologize for this inconvience and the confusion it has caused and as a result of the confusion, we are extending the AppSec DC CFP deadline to Feburary 17th 2012 at 11:59 EST to allow all to submit their topics.


Submissions

Submit papers to http://cfp.appsecdc.org. Submission deadline is Feburary 17th 2012. Inquires can be made to cfpATappsecdcDOTorg.

To submit a paper, you will have to sign up for an EasyChair account at https://www.easychair.org/account/signup.cgi.


Topics

In accordance with the broader OWASP mission stemming from the 2011 OWASP Global Summit, AppSec DC is working to reflect the move of OWASP towards embracing all facets of Application Security, and not restricting it's content to strictly to the realm of web applications. Therefore we invite all practitioners of application security and those who work with or interact with all facets of application security to submit papers and participate in the conference.

The AppSec DC 2012 Content Committee is seeking presentations in the following subject areas:

  • OWASP Projects

  • Research in Application Security Offense (Vulnerabilities & Exploits)
  • Web Application Security
  • Critical Infrastructure Security
  • Mobile Security
  • Government Initiatives & Government Case Studies
  • Effective Case studies in Policy, Governance, Architecture or Life Cycle
  • and other application security topics

Submit papers to http://cfp.appsecdc.org. Submission deadline is Feburary 17th 2012. Inquires can be made to cfpATappsecdcDOTorg.

CTF

AppSec 2012 CTF will be a competition in which participants compete for prizes in a test of application and network hacking skills. The contestants will participate in real-world scenarios designed to simulate vulnerabilities discovered in production environments. The competition will focus on application security but participants should arrive ready with an arsenal of skill-sets to complete these challenges.

Rules:

The contest begins on April 4th at 1pm and ends the next day, April 5th at 1pm. Competitors are allowed to team up with a other contestants but prizes are only available for four (4) participants. All participants must physically attending the conference and external access ot the system is not available. Additionally, we are bound by the Convention Center’s hours of operation to conduct the CTF so this will not be an all night competition.

The scoring system and any other system NOT designated as “In-Scope” is considered OFF-LIMITS and any malicious activity towards or on those systems will result in an immediate disqualification for the team from which the participant(s) exists.

Contestants will use their own equipment to compete with but it is HIGHLY recommended that contestants do not bring equipment which hosts personal or sensitive data. Scoring will take place via a web-based scoreboard portal. Teams will have individual logins that will be required to submit points.

Resources:

Internet access will be offered at the conference as a means to obtain tools necessary for the competition, but we recommend that you bring the necessary tools to the event. We cannot guarantee access to all sites via the standard convention network, and visiting some sites you would normally obtain hacking tools from may be blocked from the normal convention Wi-Fi. OWASP AppSec Latam will provide an isolated the environment and systems which will host the vulnerable applications.
