The April topic will be "Using OWASP WSFuzzer for Web Service Penetration Testing", by Mark Gordon.

You don't need to bring an understanding of web services to the talk. After a 5-minute introduction to the basics of web services you will know plenty of new buzzwords, enough to impress your friends and befuddle your enemies. After the intro Mark will demonstrate several concrete examples of how WSFuzzer helps automate testing web services for vulnerabilities. If time permits we can also discuss other details of web services such as using Akamai for better performance and the acronym soup that is the world of SOA.
