EVENT RECAP: On April 30, 2009 OWASP Nashville and the local ISSA chapter held an extended joint meeting and hands-on session on Application Security. With approximately 45 people in attendance, guest Speaker Dean H. Saxe from Foundstone introduced the OWASP LiveCD and many of the OWASP supported tools on the CD, including WebScarab and WebGoat. Using a combination of lecture, live demos and hands-on labs, we examined the WebGoat application by exploiting flaws in authorization, data validation and session handling. The event was a tremendous success!! Thanks to all who were able to participate. OWASP Nashville also extends a special thanks to: Jeff Cobb, Bart Hubbs and Mark Brown with the Middle Tennessee chapter of the ISSA; Dean Saxe from Foundstone for making the event such a success; and to HCA for hosting the event.
