:Using static analysis to identify software bugs is not a new paradigm. For years, developers have used static analysis tools to identifying code quality issues. While these tools may not be specifically designed for identifying security bugs. This presentation will discuss how custom security rules can be added to existing code quality tools to identify potential software security bugs. Writing custom software security rules for the popular Java code scanning tool PMD will be the focus of the presentation.

:''Abstract:'' TBA
:We present an approach to predict which components of a software system contain security vulnerabilities. Prediction models are a key instrument to identify the weak spots that deserve special scrutiny. Our approach is based on text mining the source code of an application. We have explored the potential of the bag-of-words representation and discovered that a dependable prediction model can be built by means of machine learning techniques. In a validation with 10 Android applications we have obtained performance results that often outclass state-of-the-art approaches.

:This talk will take a look into the interesting world of vulnerability statistics. We have examined data for the last 25 years and used it to map out trends and general information on vulnerabilities in software. Some of the questions we look at are "What were the most popular vulnerabilities? Which had the most impact? Which vendors and products suffered from the most issues? Etc. While some of the statistics are predictable, others are surprising. This data was first introduced at RSA Conference San Francisco 2013.

His PhD focused on building efficient mitigations against vulnerability exploitation, several practical mitigations were published and presented at international conferences.

:Designers of banking security systems are faced with a difficult challenge of developing technology within a tightly constrained budget, yet which must be capable of defeating attacks by determined, well-equipped criminals. This talk will summarise banking security technologies for protecting Chip and PIN/EMV card payments, online shopping, and online banking. The effectiveness of the security measures will be discussed, along with vulnerabilities discovered in them both by academics and by criminals. These vulnerabilities include cryptographic flaws, failures of tamper resistance, and poor implementation decisions, and have led not only to significant financial losses, but in some cases unfair allocation of liability. Proposed improvements will also be described, not only to the technical failures but also to the legal and regulatory regimes which are the underlying reason for some of these problems not being properly addressed.
 
:'''Dr. Steven J. Murdoch''' is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Security Group of the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, working on developing metrics for security and privacy. His research interests include covert channels, banking security, anonymous communications, and censorship resistance. Following his PhD studies on anonymous communications, he worked with the OpenNet Initiative, investigating Internet censorship. He then worked for the Tor Project, on improving the security and usability of the Tor anonymity system. Currently he is supported by the Royal Society on developing methods to understand complex system security. He is also working on analyzing the security of banking systems especially Chip & PIN/EMV, and is Chief Security Architect of Cronto, an online authentication technology provider.
