September 2009

FRAMEWORK-LEVEL THREAT ANALYSIS: ADDING SCIENCE TO THE ART OF SOURCE CODE REVIEW: 3:30 - 4:15 PM
Rohit Sethi, Security Compass

Mr. Sethi is a frequent guest speaker and instructor at several conferences, including RSA, Shmoocon, and CSI.

Call for Speakers

This is a call for speakers/papers. If we haven't approached you, but you believe you have a significant discovery or new research that the security community would value, or enjoy hearing about, we invite you to submit your presentation topic for serious consideration. Preference will be given to speakers who can present new and innovative technical content to a broad audience. Of course, all presentations are expected to challenge the brightest and quickest of attendees - we wouldn't have it any other way.

OWASP is not a vendor fair. Consequently, there will be very little tolerance for commercial content within presentations. Attendees will be encouraged to quell any shameless marketing that is not immediately backed up with rationale for its inclusion.

Some topics of interest for upcoming meetings include (but are not limited to):

  • Breaking CAPTCHA
  • Hacking Cardspace and Identity 2.0
  • Breaking Commercial Software for Fun and Profit
  • Tactics for breaking software licensing schemes
  • Gaming, the next overlooked security hole
  • Hacking Mainframes
  • Database rootkits
