NOTICE

Many of you have written to us asking about the requirement for a paper in our CFP hosted on EasyChair. Due to an unforseen change in the way EasyChair works, you are no longer able to configure a submission to require only an abstract as we thought we had done, and done in the past. To be clear, we are ***NOT*** requiring papers with our CFP submissions. As we have already started the CFP and can not move the platform we ask that anyone who does not have a paper simply submit their abstract as a .txt file to satisfy the systems requirement to upload a paper.


We apologize for this inconvience and the confusion it has caused and as a result of the confusion, we are extending the AppSec DC CFP deadline to Feburary 17th 2012 at 11:59 EST to allow all to submit their topics.

Special Free Training

Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) Clinic | FREE | Course Detail

Educate yourself in Secure Software Design and Development which are two of the seven domains from the Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) certification. This session will provide an in-depth education of these two tough domains of the CSSLP. We will cover the skills and knowledge needed to design and develop secure code. In the Secure Software Design domain, you will learn the fundamentals of design principles when applied will save costly rework. In the Secure Software Development domain, we will discuss the OWASP Top 10 threats and how to mitigate them effectively.

The Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) is an (ISC)2 certification with 7 domains focusing on the topics needed to develop hacker resilient software. CSSLPs are professionals who have validated their competency in incorporating security into each phase of the software lifecycle.


2 Day Classes

Assessing and Exploiting Web Applications with Samurai-WTF | 2 Day | Course Detail

Come take the official Samurai-WTF training course given by the two founders and lead developers of the project! You will learn the latest Samurai-WTF open source tools and as well as the latest techniques to perform web application penetration tests. After a quick overview of pen testing methodology, the instructors will lead you through the penetration and exploitation of various web applications, including client side attacks using flaws within the application. Different sets of open source tools will be used on each web application, allowing you to learn first hand the pros and cons of each tool. After you have gained experience with the Samurai-WTF tools, you will be challenged with a capture the flag event. This final challenge will give you time to practice your new skills at your own pace and experiment with your favorite new tools. This experience will help you gain the confidence and knowledge necessary to perform web application assessments and expose you to the wealth of freely available, open source tools.

Building Secure Android Apps | 2 Day | Course Detail

The course focuses on building secure mobile applications for the Android platform. Students will learn about the Android security model and platform security features. They will be introduced to mobile application threat modeling, and learn how to apply the outcomes of threat modeling directly into their design and development processes. The OWASP Mobile Top 10 Risks and Controls will be covered at great length.

After students are taught foundational information, they will learn how to properly use the various Android components and APIs to reduce the amount of vulnerabilities within production code. Hands-on labs will use the vulnerable mobile Android applications provided by the OWASP GoatDroid project. Students will learn many techniques for performing source code reviews, penetration testing, and forensic analysis of Android applications. Hands-on exercises represent a large portion of the course. Each concept presented will include examples of insecure and secure code, along with strategies for remediation. By teaching students how to identify and exploit various security flaws, they will gain a greater understanding of how the security controls actually protect their applications.

At the end of this two-day course, attendees should understand how to build secure applications, perform source code reviews, and perform penetration testing for Android applications. They will also understand and be able to demonstrate expertise at applying security controls to applications for addressing many security defects. Each student will ultimately take back with them to their workplace a repeatable and reliable methodology for building and maintaining secure Android applications.

Secure Web Application Development Training | 2 Day | Course Detail

Writing Secure code is the most effective method to securing your web applications. Writing secure code takes skill and know-how but results in a more stable and robust application and assists in protecting an organisations brand. Application security is not commonly a part of many computer science curricula today and most organizations have not focused on instituting a culture that includes application security as a core part of their software development training efforts. This intensive one-day course focuses on the most common web application security problems, including aspects of both the OWASP Top Ten (2010) and the MITRE Top 25. The course will introduce and demonstrate application assessment techniques, illustrating how application vulnerabilities can be exploited so students really understand how to avoid introducing such vulnerabilities in their code.

The Art of exploiting Injection Flaws | 2 Day | Course Detail

OWASP rates injection flaws as the most critical vulnerability within the Top 10 most Critical Web Application Security Risks under the OWASP Top 10 project. http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Top_10_2010-A1. This hands-on session will only focus on the injection flaws and the attendees will get an "in-depth" understanding of the flaws arising from this vulnerability. The topics covered in the class are, SQL Injection, XPATH Injection, LDAP Injection, Hibernate Query Language Injection, Direct OS Code Injection, and XML Entity Injection. The workshop covers classical issues such as SQL Injection, which is an oldie yet very relevant in today's scenario as well as some lesser known injection flaws such as LDAP, XPATH and XML Injection. During the 2 days course, the attendees will have access to a number of challenges for each flaw and they will learn a variety of exploitation techniques used by the attackers in the wild. Identify, extract, escalate, execute; we have got it all covered.

Virtual Patching Workshop | 2 Day | Course Detail

Identification of web application vulnerabilities is only half the battle with remediation efforts as the other. Let's face the facts, there are many real world business scenarios where it is not possible to update web application code in either a timely manner or at all. This is where the tactical use-case of implementing a web application firewall to address identified issues proves its worth.

This workshop is intended to provide an overview of the recommended practices for utilizing a web application firewall for virtual patching. After discussing the framework to use, we will then present a very interesting OWASP Summer of Code Project where the challenge was to attempt to mitigate as many of the OWASP WebGoat vulnerabilities as possible using the open source ModSecurity web application firewall. During the workshop, we will discuss both WebGoat and ModSecurity and provide in-depth walk-throughs of the complex fixes. Examples will include addressing not only attacks but the underlying vulnerabilities, using data persistence for multiple-step processes, content injection and even examples of the new LUA programming language API. The goal of this workshop is to both highlight cutting edge mitigation options using a web application firewall and to show how it can effectively be used by security consultants who traditionally could only offer source code fixes.

1 Day Classes

Application Source Code Analysis - Discovering Vulnerabilities in Web 2.0, HTML5 and RIA | 1 Day (4/2/2012) | Course Detail

Enterprise application source code, independent of languages and platforms, is a major source of vulnerabilities. The class is designed and developed to focus on enterprise architecture and application analytics to discover vulnerabilities across Web 2.0, RIA and HTML5. We will be covering analysis techniques, with tools, for assessment and review of enterprise application source code. It is imperative to know source code review methodologies and strategies for analysis. The emphasis of the class would be to develop a complete understanding of source code analysis, techniques and tools to address top set of vulnerabilities. Knowledge gained would help in analyzing and securing next generation enterprise applications at all different stages - architecture, design and/or development. The course is designed and delivered by the author of "Web Hacking: Attacks and Defenses", ?Hacking Web Services? and ?Web 2.0 Security ? Defending Ajax, RIA and SOA?, bringing his experience in application security and research to the curriculum.

Pratical Threat Modeling | 1 Day (4/2/2012) | Course Detail

Threat modeling is gaining traction as a fundamental application security activity. In this class students learn about the attacks that their applications may face and then both formal and informal approaches to threat modeling. Using a fictional scenario, students perform all the activities of a threat model on a complex application ? including analyzing design documents and role-playing interviews. Students learn about the industry standard formal threat modeling process as well as Facilitated Application Threat Modeling: a 1-day approach to threat modeling pioneered by Security Compass. Students will also be taught about Security Compass?s unique source-code/design-pattern level threat modeling.

Mobile Hacking and Securing | 1 Day (4/3/2012)| Course Detail

Students will discover mobile hacking techniques for Android and iPhone. They will understand the platform security models, device security models, app analysis, file system analysis and runtime analysis for these popular mobile operating systems. This course will provide students with the knowledge necessary to assess mobile app security including what hackers look for in mobile apps. Hacking apps themselves will equip them with the skills required to protect their own apps from attacks. Students will come out with an understanding of the pitfalls to mobile device security and the importance of developing mobile apps securely. They will learn the concepts necessary to securely develop mobile in your organization.

WebAppSec: Developing Secure Web Applications | 1 Day (4/3/2012)| Course Detail

Web applications continue to be the frontier of wide-spread security breaches. This tutorial will guide through development practices to ensure the security and integrity of web applications, in turn protecting user data and the infrastructure the application runs on. Several attack types and risks will be reviewed (including OWASP?s Top 10), along with how the proper development practices can mitigate their damage. Although examples covered are PHP-based, much of the content is also applicable to other languages. This course was sold out at AppSec USA 2011.

Call For Papers

Q. What is the Open Web & Application Security Project (OWASP)?

The Open Web & Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license. The OWASP Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization that ensures the ongoing availability and support for our work with your support.


Q. How many speaking slots are there?

The schedule for AppSec DC will largely be based on the number of quality presentations we receive. While we have an outline for the conference schedule we cannot solidify it until the CFP has completed. In addition to the primary slots we will be selecting a small number of alternate presenters who will receive a free pass to the conference in return for being ready to present if there is a cancellation.


Q. What are the submission deadlines?

The dates for CFP are from October 11th to until January 15th. Some speaker selections may be made before the end of CFP.


Q: Who is allowed to submit presentations?

A: Original authors of presentations may submit presentations for consideration. Third party representatives such as PR firms or Speaker Representatives MAY NOT submit materials on behalf of a potential speaker.


Q: Why aren't Third Parties such as PR Firms allowed to submit presentations?

A: Due to potential copyright and intellectual property liability issues as well as the need for OWASP to have direct contact with potential and selected presenters to expedite selection and deliverable materials, we require that only original authors of presentations submit for the Call for Papers. Third party representatives such as PR firms or Speaker Representatives MAY NOT submit materials on behalf of a potential speaker.


Q: How long will I have to wait before I am notified if I have been accepted or denied?

A: Due to the overwhelming response from the community the planning committee needs more time to sift through all of the proposals that we received. We feel that it is better to give each presentation a complete review rather then meet a somewhat arbitrary deadline. Originally we promised that we would respond to speakers within 15 business days of the CFP closing. We do reserve the right to select outstanding presentations prior to the date that CFP closes.


Q. Is there an honorarium for presenters?

No. OWASP is committed to making its conferences available to the widest possible audience. In order to do this OWASP keeps the entrance fees as low as possible to make the conference accessible. As a result we are unable to provide a monetary honorarium but we welcome our speakers as our guests to the conference where they can network with other security professionals.


Q: I have been accepted. What are the materials that I have to turn in and what are the deadlines?

A: The following is a list of materials that are required from each accepted presentation. Failure to proceed these materials by the deadlines set forth for the event the presentation was accepted for will result in of acceptance.

  • A confirmed Speaker Agreement
  • Presentation in PowerPoint or Keynote format using the OWASP Template
  • Detailed Bibliography of resources, co-authors, etc.
  • Optional White Paper for inclusion on CD


Q: Do I have to submit a White Paper?

A: No. We would certainly appreciate any White Papers that can be included on the conference CD but they are not required. If you have written an existing white paper to go along with your presentation, please submit it with your CFP submission. Submissions with attached White Papers will receive additional consideration.


Q: What if I have a co-author who is not presenting. How do I cite the person(s)?

A: All co-authors and works that have been used should be cited in a detailed bibliography that will be published on the Conference CD.


Q: I have been accepted and would like to add co-presenters. Can I still do this?

A: No. Co-presenters should have been added at the time that the Presentation was submitted. They may attend the conference and present if they pay the full conference fee.


Q: My PR company/friends/co-workers/family would like to come see me give my presentation. Will they be allowed in for free?

A: No. All guests of speakers must be registered and paid in full in order to receive admission to the conference.


Q: My company wants to donate and support OWASP as a 501(3)c non-profit in exchange for resources at the Expo, what is the cost?

A: Sponsorship information can be found here.


Q. I have more questions

A: Email info(at)appsecdc.org concerning this event.
