The O2 Platform : Exploiting and Fixing Microsoft ASP.net MVC Vulnerabilities. The OWASP O2 platform represents a new paradigm for how to perform, document and distribute Web Application security reviews. O2 is designed to Automate Security Consultants Knowledge and Workflows and to allow non-security experts to access and consume Security Knowledge. O2 can also be a very powerful prototyping and fast-development tool for .NET (see VisualStudio Extension  C# REPL - O2 Platform).
+
'''Ian Glover (CREST):'''
  
In this presentation, it will be explained how the O2 platform can be used to exploit the overposting vulnerability on top of Microsoft MVC framework. This use case is very important considering that the industry is adopting this framework to build the most efficient and standard compliant applications. In addition it will be illustrated how easy it is to leave the door open in applications and allow attackers to change the behaviour of these products.

Ian is the President of the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST). CREST is a not for profit organisation established to help develop professionalism within the information technology security testing community. The Register is used by organisations to gain a level of assurance that the security testers are competent and that the organisations they work for have appropriate processes and controls in place to protect their information.  The CREST qualifications have been assessed and are recognised by the UK government.  The qualifications are a mandatory requirement for individuals carry out penetration testing work on government systems.

Title Modern Password Cracking
Abstract This presentation briefly describes the most popular password cracking techniques. It then suggests an optimized attack that combines several techniques with best performance in mind. The presentation suggests the use of Markov Chains for password recovery, in combination with a range of other modified versions of common attacks.

All attacks work together and make use of common resources such as Dictionaries, and Rulesets to achieve the most optimal output possible.

Title Filename Enumeration with TildeTool
Abstract In certain versions of Microsoft IIS, it is possible to detect the short names of files and directories which have an 8.3 file naming scheme (e.g. FILENA~1.TXT) equivalent in Windows.
