Secure Java Development workshop with ESAPI, by Volkert de Buisonjé (Sogeti)

Workshop:
First, attendees will receive a brief introduction on application awareness. Then they will get acquainted with Webgoat, a "deliberately insecure J2EE web application" designed as a practice tool for secure application development and testing. They will learn how to exploit some vulnerabilities in Webgoat, through for instance Cross-Site Scripting (CSS) and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. Finally, the ESAPI library will be introduced and the attendees will learn how to apply ESAPI to fix such vulnerabilities in Webgoat's source code.

Prerequisites for this workshop:

  • Reasonable knowledge of and experience with Java development
  • A laptop running a recent version of Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows
  • The most recent version of VirtualBox (4.x) installed
  • At least 2GB of RAM
  • At least 2GB of disk space


Bio:
Volkert de Buisonjé is a senior Java developer at Sogeti. He specializes in, and teaches application security courses, both to coworkers and to customers. Knowledge sharing (in both directions) is his passion. Volkert likes making friends and talking a lot. He never shuns a good discussion, and prefers to bring a high amount of interactivity to his classes. :-)

Building a Software Security Program On Open Source Tools, by Dan Cornell (Denim Group)

Abstract:
Using the Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM) as a framework, this course walks through the major components of a comprehensive software security program and highlights open source and other freely-available tools that can be used to help implement the activities involved in such a program. The focus of the course is on providing hands-on demonstrations of the tools with an emphasis on integrating tool results into the overall software security program. Featured tools include: ESAPI, Microsoft Web Protection Library, FindBugs, FxCop, CAT.NET, Brakeman, Agnitio, Arachini, w3af, ZAProxy, ThreadFix as well as other educational resources from OWASP. Attendees should finish the course with a solid understanding of the various components of a comprehensive software security program as well as hands-on experience with a variety of freely-available tools that they can use to implement portions of these programs.

Abstract: Coming soon!
11h10 - 11h50 Lieven Desmet Sandboxing Javascript
Abstract: The inclusion of third-party scripts in web pages is a common practice. A recent study has shown that more than half of the Alexa top 10 000 sites include scripts from more than 5 different origins. However, such script inclusions carry risks, as the included scripts operate with the privileges of the including website.

In this talk, we propose JSand, a server-driven but client-side JavaScript sandboxing framework. JSand requires no browser modifications: the sandboxing framework is implemented in JavaScript and is delivered to the browser by the websites that use it. Enforcement is done entirely at the client side: JSand enforces a server-specified policy on included scripts without requiring server-side filtering or rewriting of scripts.
Most importantly, JSand is complete: access to all resources is mediated by the sandbox.
We describe the design and implementation of JSand, and we show that it is secure, backwards compatible, and that it performs sufficiently well.

11h50 - 12h30 Erwin Geirnaert OWASP Top 10 vs Drupal
Abstract: Drupal is the most used and well-known open source content management system in the world. Created by Dries Buytaert years ago it has grown with the support of a big community. Drupal 7 is already released and there is an entire ecosystem for Drupal and Drupal web agencies.

During this presentation we will discuss the findings of an automated static code analysis of Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 and how Drupal protects against the OWASP Top 10 Application Security Risks. We will explain the security weaknesses that remain when you use Drupal and what you can implement to have a secure cloud server running Drupal.

13h30 - 14h10 Asia Slowinska Body Armor for Binaries
Abstract: BinArmor is a novel technique to protect existing C binaries from memory corruption attacks on both control data and non-control data. Without access to source code, non-control data attacks cannot be detected with current techniques. Our approach hardens binaries against both kinds of overflow, without requiring the pro- grams’ source or symbol tables. We show that BinArmor is able to stop real attacks—including the recent non- control data attack on Exim. Moreover, we did not in- cur a single false positive in practice. On the downside, the current overhead of BinArmor is high—although no worse than competing technologies like taint analysis that do not catch attacks on non-control data. Specifi- cally, we measured an overhead of 70% for gzip, 16%- 180% for lighttpd, and 190% for the nbench suite.

Abstract: In today’s investigations, forensics has become an important investigative method in fighting and solving (cyber)crimes and irregularities. During the session you will be briefly taken through the landscape of Forensics Basics; the Fraud Triangle and scenario's; What to look for and the appliance of Digital Forensics. What are the Challenges, the required Skills and Expertise and Solutions to these challenges. Specific focus on the Forensics of Web Applications and what you can do the create a more forensic ready system.
14h50 - 15h30 Dan Cornell Streamlining Application Vulnerability Management: Communication Between Development and Security Teams
Abstract: Identifying application-level vulnerabilities via scanning, penetration tests and code reviews is only the first step in actually addressing the underlying risk. Managing vulnerabilities for applications is more challenging than dealing with traditional infrastructure-level vulnerabilities because they typically require the coordination of security teams with application development teams. The process also means that security managers need to get time from developers during already-cramped development and release schedules. In addition, fixes require changes to custom application code and application-specific business logic rather than the patches and configuration changes that are often sufficient to address infrastructure-level vulnerabilities. This presentation will illustrate the communication difficulties between security and development teams, and how this usually results in unactionable reports and fewer vulnerabilities remediated. In addition, the presentation will walk through an example workflow of addressing application vulnerabilities as software defects. This will be based on freely-available tools and show specific examples of how vulnerabilities can be grouped together, false positives can be culled out, and vulnerabilities transitioned to software defects, as well as how security managers can monitor and verify progress.

Bio:
I am a postdoctoral researcher in the System and Network Security group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, under the guidance of Prof. dr. ir. Herbert Bos.
I obtained my PhD from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My dissertation Using information flow tracking to protect legacy binaries was completed under the supervision of Prof. dr. ir. Herbert Bos, while my copromotor was Prof. dr. ir. Henri E. Bal.
During my PhD studies, I interned twice with Microsoft Research Cambridge, where I joined the Systems and Performance Group. I also spent few months interning with the Systems and Security Department at Institute for Infocomm Research in Singapore.
My research focuses on developing techniques to automatically analyze and reverse engineer complex software that is available only in binary form. Further, I’ve been looking into mechanisms that proactively protect software from malicious activities. Currently, I am involved in a project on Reverse Engineering of binaries, known as Rosetta.
