Next Meeting OWASP-ISSA Joint Monthly Meeting- Wednesday September 18, 2013 7PM
Speaker: Jerry Hoff
Whitehat Security, VP, Static Code Analysis Division; Managing Partner / Co-Founder, INFRARED SECURITY; Former Developer Security Consulting & FTE Across The Board; Over 10,000 Hours Delivering Technical Training; MS In Computer Science, Washington University
Topic: Demonstration of Common Web Vulnerabilities using WebGoat.NET
Developers cannot defend against unknown threats. Understanding vulnerabilities and security controls is an absolute necessity – not only for developers, but for Architects, QA and anyone else involved in the creation of software. This talk starts by making a strong argument for developer education, and how it fits into any organization’s SDLC. From there, we discuss other OWASP resources and projects dedicated to developer education, and an in-depth discussion of OWASP WebGoat.NET – an ASP.NET specific re-design of OWASP which meets the needs and addresses the challenges of modern application security training programs.
Sponsor: Checkmarx and Trend Micro
The product enables developers and auditors to easily scan un-compiled / un-built code in all major coding languages and identify its security vulnerabilities.
Static Code Analysis (SCA) delivers security and the requirement of incorporating security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC). It is the only proven method to cover the entire code base and identify all the vulnerable areas in the software. In static code analysis the entire code base is abstracted and all code properties and code data-flows are exposed.
With Checkmarx's CxSuite, auditors and developers have immediate access to the code analysis results and remediation advice. We provide user friendly, high productivity, flexible and accurate risk intelligence platform that ensures your application remains hacker-proof.
