'''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.

'''Featured Presentation: Access Control Design Best Practices'''<br>

Access Control is a necessary security control at almost every layer within a web application. This talk will discuss several of the key access control anti-patterns commonly found during website security audits. These access control anti-patterns include hard-coded security policies, lack of horizontal access control, and "fail open" access control mechanisms. In reviewing these and other access control problems, we will discuss and design a positive access control mechanism that is data contextual, activity based, configurable, flexible, and deny-by-default - among other positive design attributes that make up a robust web-based access-control mechanism.
