One of the pain points of application penetration testing is keeping all your tools up to date and installed on whatever computer you happen to have with you. After several successful releases of the OWASP Live CD, I had a bit of a think and decided that there was a better way. After a bunch of re-tooling (the fancy word is refactoring), OWASP WTE is ready for prime time. OWASP Web Testing Environment is a project to package application testing tools and make them available in a variety of ways - you pick what works for you: Live CD, Virtual Machine, ala carte installations on your existing Ubuntu system, or maybe even attack tools in the cloud. The choice is yours with WTE.

'''Topic: ''' Protecting Your Applications from Backdoors: How to Security Your Business Critical Applications from Time Bombs, BAckdoors &amp; More
+
 
+
With the increasing practice of outsourcing and using 3rd party libraries, it is nearly impossible for an enterprise to identify the pedigree and security of the software running its business critical applications. As a result backdoors and malicious code are increasingly becoming the prevalent attack vector used by hackers. Whether you manage internal development activities, work with third party developers or are developing a COTS application for enterprise, your mandate is clear- safeguard your code and make applications security a priority for internal and external development teams. In this session we will cover; • Prevalence of backdoors and malicious code in third party attacks • Definitions and classifications of backdoors and their impact on your applications • Methods to identify, track and remediate these vulnerabilities

'''Topic: ''' Technology and Business Risk Management: How Application Security Fits In
+
 
+
This presentation demonstrates how important application security is to the overall stability and security of the infrastructure and ultimately, the business. Presented from the Information Security Officer/Risk Manager point of view, it shows how a strong information security program reduces levels of reputational, operational, legal, and strategic risk by limiting vulnerabilities, increasing stability, and maintaining customer confidence and trust. It focuses on the top concerns of risk managers and how application security fits into the overall risk management process. The audience will be given recommendations on how to improve cost effectiveness and efficiency to achieve business, security, audit, and compliance objectives relative to applications.

'''Topic: ''' Detective Work for Testers. Finding Workflow-based Defects.
+
 
+
Workflow-based security defects in Web applications are especially difficult to identify because they evade traditional, point-and-scan vulnerability detection techniques. Understanding these potential defects and why black-box scanners typically miss them, are key to creating a testing strategy for successful detection and mitigation. Rafal Los describes the critical role that testers play in assessing application work flows and how business process-based testing techniques can uncover these flaws. Rafal demystifies the two main types of workflow-based application vulnerabilities-business process logic vulnerabilities and parameter-based vulnerabilities-and provides you with a sound basis to improve your testing strategies. Become a security testing sleuth and learn to find the workflow-based security defects before your system is compromised.

'''Topic:''' Vulnerability Management in an Application Security World. Identifying application-level vulnerabilities via penetration tests and code reviews is only the first step in actually addressing the underlying risk. Managing vulnerabilities for applications is more challenging than dealing with traditional infrastructure-level vulnerabilities because they typically require the coordination of security teams with application development teams and require security managers to secure time from developers during already-cramped development and release schedules. In addition, fixes require changes to custom application code and application-specific business logic rather than the patches and configuration changes that are often sufficient to address infrastructure-level vulnerabilities. This presentation details many of the pitfalls organizations encounter while trying to manage application-level vulnerabilities as well as outlines strategies security teams can use for communicating with development teams. Similarities and differences between security teams’ practice of vulnerability management and development teams’ practice of defect management will be addressed in order to facilitate healthy communication between these groups.
