Topic Area: Automated testing of web applications for security vulnerabilities
 
 
 
=====  Sergey Shekyan & Bei Zhang, Shape Security=====
 
Headless browsers have become indispensable tools for security teams, researchers, and attackers focusing on web applications. Tools like PhantomJS enable anyone to automatically interact with highly dynamic websites and to perform many types of automated attacks. This presentation will dive into headless browser detection and spoofing techniques.
 
 
 
Sergey Shekyan is a Principal Engineer at Shape Security, where he is focused on the development of the new generation web security product. Prior to Shape Security, he spent 4 years at Qualys developing their on demand web application vulnerability scanning service.
 
 
 
Bei Zhang is a Senior Software Engineer at Shape Security, focused on analysis and countermeasures of automatic web attacks. Previously, he worked at the Chrome team at Google with a focus on the Chrome Apps API. His interests include web security, source code analysis, and algorithms.

Notes about OWASP presentations

OWASP presentations are geared for a technical audience. We are particularly interested in new approaches to tackling application security problems, defensive techniques for new technology in the application security space and lessons learned from developers and security professionals tackling application security. Please consider a wide breadth of topic areas and we can discuss if they should be tailored in a particular direction for the OWASP audience.

OWASP chapter presentations must not be sales pitches and must adhere to a vendor neutral approach to the topic.


Chapter Meetings

OWASP Bay Area Meetup - All events can be found here

About Presentation Events

Presentation events will feature 1 or more speakers discussing application security. These events will include a networking session, with drinks and food, before and after the event.

About OWASP Social Hours

The purpose of the OWASP social gathering is:

  • Informal security chat - the benefits of "hallway con" and security talk with others in the industry
  • Networking - meet other people in the field and industry
  • After work drinks - a nice break after a long work day

Note: These events won't have any formal presentations. They're meant to be social gatherings to meet others in the industry and chat about security. Check our quarterly OWASP Bay Area schedule for the security presentation events. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Bay_Area

Is your organization interested in hosting an OWASP social hour in the bay area (San Francisco, South Bay, East Bay)? Contact travis.mcpeak@owasp.org

    • Presented by Jim Manico and Eoin Keary, this intensive boot camp focuses on the most common web application security problems, including aspects of both the OWASP Top Ten and the MITRE Top 25. The course will introduce and demonstrate application assessment techniques, illustrating how application vulnerabilities can be exploited so students really understand how to avoid introducing such vulnerabilities in their code and understand fixes.
