Jerry Hoff



Jerry.png "Building Security Into Frameworks: Who is doing it right": In this talk, Jerry Hoff, VP of the Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security, will discuss the importance of security controls in mobile and web frameworks. The talk features a tour through a spectrum of languages and frameworks. A tip of the hat will be given to frameworks and security controls that demonstrably mitigate vulnerabilities, resulting in more secure code. A wag of the finger will be given to frameworks that either lack essential security controls, or implement them improperly.

Many of the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and their corresponding security controls will be discussed. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the security libraries available across a wide array of popular web technologies.


Jerry Hoff is the VP of the Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security. Prior to joining WhiteHat, he was a co-founder and managing partner at Infrared Security. Jerry has worked at a number of fortune ten financial firms, along with years of hands-on security consulting, where he specialized in manual code review, web application penetration testing, and architecture reviews. Jerry also has years of development and teaching experience. He taught for over seven years at Washington University's CAIT program, and the microcomputer program at University of Missouri in St. Louis. Jerry is the writer/producer of the popular OWASP Appsec Tutorial Series and the lead developer for the WebGoat.NET project.


Pravir Chandra



PravirChandra_Headshot.jpg Everything you know about Injection Attack is wrong: This casual talk will take a look at several mundane vulnerabilities that we all know about and ask a few deeper questions. What are the underlying mechanisms? Does our advice on preventing them *actually* work? Is there a better way when you think of software design patterns? By the end, we’ll challenge the audience to think past the surface of these code vulnerabilities and hopefully learn a little about how the right abstraction model can save tons of security headaches.


Pravir Chandra is a veteran in the security space and a long-time OWASP contributor, including his role as the creator and leader of the Open Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM) project. Currently as security architect for the CTO of Bloomberg, he drives proactive security initiatives that demonstrate concrete value for the firm. Prior to this, Pravir was Director of Strategic Services at HP/Fortify where he lead software security assurance programs for Fortune 500 clients in a variety of verticals. He is responsible for standing up the most comprehensive and measurably effective programs in existence today. As a thought leader in the security field for over 10 years, Pravir has written many articles, whitepapers, and books and is routinely invited to speak at businesses and conferences world-wide.
