OWASP Minneapolis-St. Paul (OWASP MSP)

Welcome to the Minneapolis-St. Paul (OWASP MSP) chapter homepage. The chapter president is Alex Bauert and the vice president is Lorna Alamri.

Up Next: OWASP-MSP: A joint Event with MN ISSA on October 17, 2012 - Doors are open at 5:30 PM with the agenda starting at 6 PM and admission is FREE. In cooperation with the Minneapolis chapter of OWASP, this event is catered to those interested in learning about threat modeling by playing Microsoft's "Elevation of Privilege" card game. We'll give an explanation of threat modeling and explain how to play the game. We've also got a discussion on Security Metaphors lead by Josh More from RJS, food, drink and prizes for the winners of Elevation of Privilege!

Elevation of Privilege is a card game designed to teach software engineers about threat modeling. There are some technical concepts used in the game, but it is mostly accessible to those with only a high level knowledge of system design and application security. We will be using real (anonymized) system diagrams to play against!

Feel free to invite that programmer in your life that you always get into security sparring matches with; they'll love it!
