*''' Abstract: Secure Password Storage Practices '''
 
(or Why "Hashing + Salting != Secure Passwords")
 
  
Many web applications require passwords that are hard for users to remember, cumbersome to type, yet easy for hackers to crack. With affordable, lightning-fast hardware aiding hackers, we have recently seen a number of large organizations in the news for user-password security failures. Join us as we discuss common attacks on password lists/tables as well as some password storage practices that can make any cracking attempts not worth the attackers’ time.

*''' Topic: Honeypots along side IT security operations '''
  
*'''Bio: iMan Louis '''
+
Honeypots commonly take a strategic backseat to IT security operations. This has not stopped community based security professionals and enthusiasts to harness the advantages of the honeypot to form world wide networks capturing and sourcing malicious behavior. Communities that have become vendors found opportunity in higher quality IP lists as well providing deep expertise to provide solutions to anti-fraud behavior. The combination is always worth consideration if you are a customer.
iMan is a Senior Consultant with Cigital Inc., where he conducts security code reviews, ethical hacking, and web application security assessments for some of the largest global corporations. He has also developed courseware for Cigital's Defensive Programming course series and delivered instructor-led training for many years. He brings 12 years of experience in software development and application security. iMan has recently moved from San Francisco to the Greater L.A. area and is looking forward to being an active member of our L.A.
