Tales from the Crypt(o): Lessons About Secrecy from Julius Caesar to Moxie Merlinspike

Speaker: Tin Zaw

Tin Zaw is the former president of OWASP Los Angeles chapter.


March 20 2013, Joint meeting with ISSA, Monterey Park

Securing Mobile Apps for the Enterprise

Securing Mobile Apps – that’s the big discussion today. The last couple of years enterprises have been attempting to meet this requirement by deploying client-intensive MDMs (Mobile Device Managers). This has left the apps being utilized by partners, suppliers and customers – completely unprotected. How do we meet the challenge of applying security authentication standards to these un-managed devices. This is what will be discussed/demo’d.

Speaker: Garret Grajek

Garret Grajek is a CISSP-certified security engineer with more than 20 years of experience in the information security and authentication space. As Chief Technical Officer and Chief Operating Officer for SecureAuth Corporation, Garret is responsible for the strategic direction of the company’s Identity Enforcement product offerings.

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.

Speaker: iMan Louis

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.

Top Ten Web Defenses

We cannot “firewall” or “patch” our way to secure websites. In the past, security professionals thought firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), patching, and privacy policies were enough. Today, however, these methods are outdated and ineffective, as attacks on prominent, well-protected websites are occurring every day. Website developers must learn to code in a secure fashion to have any chance of providing organizations with proper defenses in the current threat-scape. The session will provide specific tips and guidelines to make website code both low risk and less vulnerable.
