During this session, you will learn how to perform security code review and uncover vulnerabilities such as OWASP Top 10: Cross-site Scripting, SQL Injection, Access Control and much more in early stages of development. You will use a real life application "SecureTickers" pulled from SourceForge. You will get an introduction to Static Code Analysis tools and how you can extend PMD (http://pmd.sourceforge.net/), the open source static code analysis tool, to catch security flaws like OWASP Top 10. Expect lots of code, tools, hacking and fun! *(Please note that the exercises will be mainly in Java.)

OWASP Montreal - October 30th - Les utilités d’un pare-feu applicatif Web (WAF)

  • MAIN PRESENTER: Jonathan Marcil
  • ABSTRACT: Vous hébergez des applications Web et votre défense se limite à un coupe-feu réseau. Cependant, une grande partie des attaques sont menées directement via le protocole HTTP et l’utilisation d’un coupe-feu traditionnel s’avère inutile.

Le coupe-feu applicatif Web (Web Application Firewall, WAF) se veut une solution à cette problématique. La présentation, basée sur mon expérience des dernières années, fait le point sur les diverses utilités de cette technologie : Les choix d’implémentations. Les diverses modes de fonctionnements. L’importance et le choix des types de règles à implémenter. Rapports et collection des alertes. Méthodologie de développement de règles. Bonus: Contournement de règles et exceptions.

Le logiciel Open Source ModSecurity sera utilisé comme exemple ainsi que les règles OWASP CRS. D’autres règles conçues pour la présentation seront aussi présentées dans le but de démontrer une utilisation sur mesure du WAF.

OWASP Montreal - June 18th 2012 - Evolution of Malware and Defense from an Enterprise Infrastructure

  • MAIN PRESENTER: John Otterson
  • ABSTRACT: The security market space is a flood of attack detection, prevention, reporting, and recovery tools and appliances. Each targets one or more technical, legal or procedural risk areas, and most tend to make far reaching promises. This talk will take the audience past the hype, through the real-world experiences of how some of these tools make or break their promises, and how they can be realistically combined to create a meaningful security monitoring program. The presenter will then share how the attacks evolve to avoid detection, and how the security tools and practice similarly evolve to continue to be effective.

OWASP Montreal - March 12th 2012 - Training

REGISTER NOW!

Integrating security in a webapp project: from the idea to going live

Concept: A 1-day training covering 3 major topics related to integrating security in a software development project: - good practices and tools at design stage (security requirements, secure design, threat modeling) - good practices and tools at implementation stage (secure coding practices and code review) - good practices and tools at verification stage (security validation)

The entire training will follow a red-line based on a real-life HR web application project in which we will manage security and privacy aspects. Students will cover the entire lifecycle of the application, from analysis to deployment, and integrate good practices and tools based on OWASP material.

Trainers: - Antonio Fontes, Switzerland - Philippe Gamache, Canada - Sébastien Gioria, France

Course format: - The training is composed of three modules, each consisting of three 45-minutes blocks (total: 9 blocks) - Each module includes three blocks: theory, hands-on, validation/debriefing.

Schedule: - 8:45-9:30, 9:40-10:25, 10:30-11:15 -> "design" module - 11:30-12:30 -> lunch - 12:45-13:30, 13:35-14:20, 14:25-15:10 -> "implementation" module - 15:10-15:40 -> cookie break - 15:40-16:25, 16:30-17:15, 17:20-18:05 -> "verification" module - 18:10 -> closing session (debriefing/conclusions)

We expect students to arrive around 8am and be able to leave around 6:30/7pm

Pre-requisites (required skills and material): - Bring your own laptop (recommended: dual-core system running VMWare/Virtualbox) - Experience in web application development (hands-on will be in JAVA but do not require in-depth knowledge of the language) - Understanding of a web application project lifecycle - Understanding of well-known web application attacks (Top 10 attacks)

OWASP Montreal - September 15th 2011 - XSS Defense In Depth at Scale!

  • MAIN PRESENTER: Jim Manico, WhiteHat Security and OWASP Podcast
  • ABSTRACT: This talk will discuss the past methods used for XSS defense that were only partially effective. Learning from these lessons, will will also discuss present day defensive methodologies that are effective, but place an undue burden on the developer. We will then finish with a discussion of future XSS defense mythologies that shift the burden of XSS defense from the developer to various frameworks. These include auto-escaping template technologies, browser-based defenses such as Content Security Policy, and Javascript sandboxes such as the Google CAJA project and JSReg.

Meeting on November 3rd 2009 in Montreal (Pravir Chandra present Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM))

  • MAIN PRESENTER: Pravir Chandra is Director of Strategic Services at Fortify Software and works with clients on software security assurance programs. Pravir is recognized for his expertise in software security, code analysis, and his ability to strategically apply technical knowledge. Prior to Fortify, he was a Principal Consultant affiliated with Cigital and led large software security programs at Fortune 500 companies.

He recently created and led the Open Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM) project with the OWASP Foundation, leads the OWASP CLASP project, and also serves as member of the OWASP Global Projects Committee. Pravir is author of the book Network Security with OpenSSL.
  • SUBJECT: The Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) into a software development organization. Covering more than typical SDLC-based models for security, SAMM enables organizations to self-assess their security assurance program and then use recommended roadmaps to improve in a way that's aligned to the specific risks facing the organization. Beyond that, SAMM enables creation of scorecards for an organization's effectiveness at secure software development throughout the typical governance, development, and deployment business functions. Scorecards also enable management within an organization to demonstrate quantitative improvements through iterations of building a security assurance program. This workshop will introduce the SAMM framework and walk through useful activities such as assessing an assurance program, mapping an existing organization to a recommended roadmap, and iteratively building an assurance program. Time allowing, additional case studies will also be discussed. OpenSAMM is an open a free project and has recently been donated to the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Foundation.
