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.

'''Featured Presentation: Analysis of Drupal Security'''
 +
<br>An overview of how Drupal, one of the most commonly used, open source content management systems, is secured against the OWASP Top Ten, some common configuration mistakes, and emerging trends on Drupal exploits. What attacks are targeting Drupal applications?  Personal thoughts from a developer, user and admin of Drupal sites about clear steps that can be taken to improve security with Drupal applications.
 +
 +
'''Speaker Bio'''
 +
<br>Andrew has been a developer for 7 years.  He began as a PHP and C# developer, where he entered web application development by designing and creating web services.  For the last 5 years he has been a web developer in Boulder. He has always had an interest in web application, network, and cyber security and has brought those interests into his web developer role with securing web applications.  He is often amused how passwords are still stored as plain text, untrusted HTML input is not validated, and GET parameters are not sanitized.
 +
 +
Seating is limited and is prioritized for those who RSVP. Parking is available through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone. Food and drinks will be provided and there will be a networking session preceding the meeting. As always, meetings are free to attend.
 +

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!

====Wednesday, Wednesday, February 27th at 6pm – CTF Project Development====
  
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.
+
Plan, plot, hack, hang out.
October's topic is "Quantity vs Quality: Choosing Wisely" (or possibly "DevOps") featuring Rafał Łoś, aka Wh1t3Rabbit, Security Strategist at HP.
