WEB APPLICATION SECURITY ASSURANCE: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Any application that will face the harsh realities of the “front lines” in a web environment must be tried and true. This is even more true when the application is a security product intended to protect whatever sits behind it. This presentation will discuss not only the different methods that are used to insure this high degree of assurance, but also the risks and cost factors associated with this process helping customers and vendors alike to both understand and think about all facets of this process.

Attack your database before others do : 5:15 - 6:00 PM

In this presentation, we will show typical security flaws found in PL/SQL and Java code due to programmer mistakes. We will demonstrate how to use existing open-source scanning and fuzzing tools to automatically find and flag such flaws, and also demonstrate how creating your own tools in PL/SQL can help you keep your code secure.

You will learn:
1. Common security mistakes developers make
2. How to use open source tools to find those mistakes
3. How to roll out your own PL/SQL fuzzer

Call for Sponsors/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):

  • Agile Software Development and Security
  • 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/RACF
  • Database rootkits
  • PCI/DSS Compliance
  • Privacy considerations in software development
