OWASP Hartford

Welcome to the Hartford chapter homepage. The chapter leader is James McGovern


Participation

OWASP Foundation (Overview Slides) is a professional association of global members and is open to anyone interested in learning more about software security. Local chapters are run independently and guided by the Chapter_Leader_Handbook. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional association your support and sponsorship of any meeting venue and/or refreshments is tax-deductible. Financial contributions should only be made online using the authorized online chapter donation button. To be a SPEAKER at ANY OWASP Chapter in the world simply review the speaker agreement and then contact the local chapter leader with details of what OWASP PROJECT, independent research or related software security topic you would like to present on.

Sponsors

We would like to thank Ounce Labs, Finjan, Forrester Research, Cigital, Accenture, Oracle, The 451 Group, IronKey, The Hartford and Microsoft for their generous sponsorship and helping make application security visible...

If you would like to sponsor either the food and/or door prizes for an upcoming meeting, please email James McGovern with your proposal. Independent of any financial considerations, sponsorship priority is driven by those who drive participation in OWASP to their employees and customers.


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 Web Application Firewalls
  • Incorporating XACML into Enterprise Applications
  • Medical Identity Theft
  • Breaking Commercial Software for Fun and Profit
  • Tactics for breaking software licensing schemes
  • Gaming, the next overlooked security hole
  • Hacking Mainframes
  • Database rootkits
