We are in need of speakers! If you have a talk, anywhere from 20min - 1hr, please let me know. Send me quick abstract (doesn't need to be formal) so I have an idea about what you want to talk about. Even if you've asked before, please let me know again.
When you arrive, you will need to sign in with security in the lobby of the building, who will direct you to the cafeteria for refreshments. We will then move to the Auditorium for talks. The meeting is open to everyone and is free to attend!

We'll firm up the evening's agenda as the date nears.
Anyone in our area interested in information security is welcome to attend. Our meetings are informal and encourage open discussion of all aspects of application security. We invite attendees to give short presentations about specific topics.

Webapps In Name Only Thomas Ptacek, Matasano Security
Where modern network architecture meets legacy application design, we get "The Port 80 Problem": vendors wrapping every conceivable network protocol in a series of POSTs and calling them "safe". These "Webapps In Name Only" are a nightmare for application security specialists.
In this talk, we'll discuss, with case studies, how tools from protocol reverse engineering can be brought to bear on web application security, covering the following areas:
- Locating and Decompiling Java and .NET Code - Structure and Interpretation of Binary Protocols in HTTP - Protocol Debugging Tools - Web App Crypto Tricks
Token-less strong authentication for web applications: A Security Review Cory Scott, ABN AMRO
A short presentation on the threat models and attack vectors for token-less schemes used to reduce the risk of password-only authentication, but yet do not implement "true" two-factor technologies for logistical costs or user acceptance reasons. We'll go over how device fingerprinting and IP geo-location work and discuss the pros and cons of the solutions.
