OWASP Update

Retrospective of 2013 activities as the BeNeLux-Day 2013 at the RAI Amsterdam and looking forward to OWASP Conferences and event 2014.

Security as part of Quality Assurance

We present a security analysis of an internet banking system used by one of the bigger banks in the Netherlands, in which customers use a USB-connected device – a smartcard reader with a display and numeric keyboard – to authorise transactions with their bank card and PIN code. Such a set-up could provide a very strong defence against online attackers, notably Man-in-the-Browser attacks, where an attacker controls the browser and host PC. However, we show that the system we studied is flawed: an attacker who controls an infected host PC can get the smartcard to sign transactions that the user does not explicitly approve, which is precisely what the device is meant to prevent.

Don't be a tool's fool

Tools are important to both hackers and security testers, but they are not 'the silver bullit'. You need to understand the limitations of tools in order to get the most efficiency out of them. In this presentation some tips and tricks for well-known tools will be shown to get you started getting the right mind-set in using them.
