Front Range OWASP Conference 2010
FROC2010 was a major success! The survey results are now posted.
Looking for the presentations and videos? They are here
After successful FROC's in June of 2008, and March of 2009, we are back in Denver, Colorado USA on Wednesday the 2nd of June 2010!
This year we again present a full day, multi-track event, which will provide valuable information for managers and executives as well as developers and engineers.
In 2009, we attracted a packed venue with our great AppSec speakers, and we hope to achieve the same again in 2010. This year we are organizing the conference with the support of our colleagues at the Cloud Security Alliance, and will feature an AppSec track as well as a CloudSec/VirtSec track.
Due to the hard work of our organizers and the gracious support of our sponsors, FROC was a free event in 2008 and 2009. This year, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we are offering tickets to the event on a DONATION basis. Pay whatever you or your company can afford.
Agenda and Presentations: 2 June 2010
The agenda follows the successful OWASP conference multi track format, with opening keynotes and presentations in the main auditorium, split tracks in the middle of the day, and closing panel discussions back in the main auditorium.

This year, the conference will again be held at University of Colorado, Denver. However, instead of the Tivoli Student Union, this year the event will be hosted at the North Classroom building (Atrium UCD).
OWASP has negotiated discounted rates with the uber-pimpin Hotel Teatro. Rooms under the FROC rate are $159/night and include courtesy Cadillac Escalade transportation to and from Auraria Campus. To reserve a room, contact Hotel Teatro at +1.303.228.1100 and mention FROC or use the iHotelier.com link here.
How to get to the venue?
- By taxi: taxi from the airport to venue is about $50 USD
- From hotel: transport from the conference hotel (Hotel Teatro) by limo is free
- By car: there is plenty of parking at the UCD. Attendees should park at the Tivoli lot (as in past years) and it is a short walk to the North Classroom buildings. Parking validation will be provided for registered FROC participants.
Capture the Flag (CTF)
A capture the flag contest was held, with challenges in the categories of network, forensics, and web applications. The winner received a new iPad. Second and third place received an iPod shuffle.
The team that won the contest consisted of four members of the Denver Defcon group, dc303 (http://dc303.org). This group also plays in the annual Defcon CTF competition (with about 20 other folks from the Denver area). If you are interested in joining them for future CTF competitions (local and abroad), contact mantis1 at gmail.com.
Second place went to Matthew Rowley (playing on his own)
