'''Thursday, November 15th at 6pm – Identity Management with Ram'''
+
====Wednesday, January 16nd at 6pm – CTF Project Development====
  
November's topic is "Identity and Access Management for OWASP" by Ram.  There are various aspects to security -- and this talk will explain the Identity and Access Management part of the security spectrum. Web applications typically need authenticated access and they have various roles that need to be authorized depending on business needs.

Plan, plot, hack, hang out.
  
In addition to our presentation, we welcome everyone's participation in the open topic discussion. While entirely impromptu, October's discussion on PEN testing was detailed and informative, demonstrating the value of collaborating with peers.   Security professionals: Remember to invite a developer!

Presenter Bio: Ram graduated from Perry Mason thrillers to reading about Pascal, C, C++ and OOP by the time he was 16. Corporate life started him off on IBM mainframes. That did not last long before he got back into Java and C++. The 9/11 incident threw him into Security and he got to dabble a fair bit in the Identity and Access Management space. He is very fortunate to have been able to add to his geek credentials by gaining soft skills (very important skill for security folks) in dealing with "situations" on numerous occasions in a customer facing role. He also loves the outdoor pursuits of Colorado.

October's topic is "Quantity vs Quality: Choosing Wisely" (or possibly "DevOps") featuring Rafał Łoś, aka Wh1t3Rabbit, Security Strategist at HP.

To make this work I need volunteers. Your job is to pick a project, learn a bit about it, then present it to the rest of the group. Informal discussions are good, prepared presentations are better, and live demos are best. The goal is lively, informative, low-stress discussions rather than formal, extensively-research presentations. Spend an hour or two familiarizing yourself with your project (you do not need to be an expert on it), jot your notes into a couple of slides, then share with the group for 5 - 10 minutes.
