'''When:''' Wednesday May 8, 2013 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
  
'''Topic: ''' Is There An End to Testing Ourselves Secure?
 
  
Despite years of research on best practices to integrate security into the early phases of the SDLC, most organizations rely on static analysis, dynamic analysis, and penetration testing as their primary means of eliminating vulnerabilities. This approach leads to vulnerabilities discovered late in the development process,  thereby either cause project delays or risk acceptance. Neither option is particularly appealing.
+
'''Topic: ''' Implementation Patterns for Software Security Programs
  
This talk is a an open discussion with the local chapter about if there are scalable, measurable approaches that actually work in the real world to address security early into the SDLC, with consideration for how agile development impacts effectiveness. Points of discussion
 
include:
 
  
 +
Most organizations have finally realized that the software applications they are developing and deploying exposes them to significant risks.  Organizations that are serious about this issue have started rolling  out software security programs to address these risks in a structured manner.  The challenge for these organizations is to determine what measures to put in place and how to implement those measures to best reduce their exposure.  Efforts such as BISMM, OpenSAMM and Microsoft¹s SDL have shown that there are a number of components of software security programs that are reasonably standard, but there are different ways of implementing tools and deploying processes so what was successful for one organization does not guarantee success in others.  Matching implementation strategies to the specific capabilities, limitations,  strengths and weaknesses of the organizations is critical to a successful program roll-out.
  
Is static analysis sufficient?
 
  
Developer awareness training
+
This presentation relates several example case studies for organizations rolling out different portions of their software security programs.  Although every organization is different, looking across multiple program implementations allows patterns to emerge and these patterns can provide guidance to other organizations looking to organize plans for their software security programs.
  
Threat modeling / architecture analysis
 
  
Secure requirements
+
Several aspects of program rollout and the associated program are covered.  Firstly, the presentation provides a discussion of selecting the organizational "owner" of the software security program.  Although many parts of the organization must be involved, one group must be ultimately responsible for the security state of software developed and deployed.  Then the presentation looks into three specific software security activities: static code analysis, dynamic application testing and developer security education. Several implementation patterns for each of these activity rollouts are outlined along with factors organizations can use to decide if a particular approach is well suited to their needs.  These patterns help to provide templates that minimize the requirement of an organization to experiment and break new, risky ground by allowing them to benefit from lessons learned from previous efforts.
  
Considerations for procured applications
 
  
 +
The presentation is vendor-neutral and based on experiences working with several organizations creating software security programs.

Identity Sprawl
 
We will take an in depth look at what is driving enterprises to consider and migrate to Web, SaaS and Mobile applications. We then investigate Web Access Management where it started and why we need a new approach to meet the new needs. But we still need to consider the traditional tenants of Authentication, Authorization and Audit. These are still vitally important - even more so. Finally we will explore how identities are increasingly growing with this new paradigm and how we can control those identities.

'''Abstract:'''
 
 
The Top 10 Mobile Application Risks, or “Mobile App Top 10” for short, is a list of the most prevalent risks to look for in the mobile applications you are developing and consuming.
 
 
Many of the risks in mobile devices are similar to those of traditional spyware, Trojan software, and insecurely designed apps. However, mobile devices are not just small computers. Mobile devices are designed around personal and communication functionality which makes the top mobile applications risks different from the top traditional computing risks.
 
 
The Mobile App Top 10 can be used to determine the coverage of a security solution which can protect against these risks. A mobile app security solution can declare its coverage of the Mobile App Top 10 so customers can understand what risks the solution mitigates. Mobile app security solutions can be used in the development of an app, as part of an app store vetting process, for acceptance testing of an app, or for security software running on a mobile device.

'''Abstract''':
 
 
This presentation outlines the primary risk concerns for application security, audit, and compliance then expands on those topics to create a "Checklist for Application Security, Systems, Internetworking, and Engineering". The presentation begins with understanding the types of risks involved, the current pitfalls (and in some cases pratfalls) companies struggle to endure, and what we can do to fix them. The presenter outlines the basic foundation on how to build a program for success, debunking the myth that you can’t have operational stability, security, and compliance while reducing operating costs, and how using this approach helps to achieve this goal.
 
 
Applications are currently a major attack vector as well as being difficult to keep stable, secure, and compliant. But securing only the applications, or just the infrastructure can lead to compromise; and audit, compliance, and legal problems. By applying the author's philosophy and  checklists to your organization, staff from support, engineering, application development, up to CISOs can more effectively work together to improve security and meet Executive Management’s tolerance for business risk while achieving business objectives. This presentation highlights the issues, demonstrates how the entire enterprise works together, and finally outlines a basic checklist and a methodology for CISOs, Developers, Administrators, and Engineers alike to ensure business and technology risk management work in concert with all technology areas, including audit and compliance.The method draws its strengths from proven frameworks such as OWASP, SAMM, Visible Ops, FFIEC, CoBIT, and ITIL.

'''Abstract''':
 
 
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.
 
 
In this talk I will cover where OWASP WTE is currently, what features are available and what the future holds. The overall project goal is to make testing tools as widely available and easily usable as possible.

May Meeting

When: Wednesday May 8, 2013 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM


Topic: Implementation Patterns for Software Security Programs


Most organizations have finally realized that the software applications they are developing and deploying exposes them to significant risks. Organizations that are serious about this issue have started rolling out software security programs to address these risks in a structured manner. The challenge for these organizations is to determine what measures to put in place and how to implement those measures to best reduce their exposure. Efforts such as BISMM, OpenSAMM and Microsoft¹s SDL have shown that there are a number of components of software security programs that are reasonably standard, but there are different ways of implementing tools and deploying processes so what was successful for one organization does not guarantee success in others. Matching implementation strategies to the specific capabilities, limitations, strengths and weaknesses of the organizations is critical to a successful program roll-out.


This presentation relates several example case studies for organizations rolling out different portions of their software security programs. Although every organization is different, looking across multiple program implementations allows patterns to emerge and these patterns can provide guidance to other organizations looking to organize plans for their software security programs.


Several aspects of program rollout and the associated program are covered. Firstly, the presentation provides a discussion of selecting the organizational "owner" of the software security program. Although many parts of the organization must be involved, one group must be ultimately responsible for the security state of software developed and deployed. Then the presentation looks into three specific software security activities: static code analysis, dynamic application testing and developer security education. Several implementation patterns for each of these activity rollouts are outlined along with factors organizations can use to decide if a particular approach is well suited to their needs. These patterns help to provide templates that minimize the requirement of an organization to experiment and break new, risky ground by allowing them to benefit from lessons learned from previous efforts.


The presentation is vendor-neutral and based on experiences working with several organizations creating software security programs.
