17:10 - 17:50 : Cloud Security Topics
Shalom Carmel, Venera
As more and more services move into the cloud, security of these resources becomes significant. In this lecture Shalom will review various topics relating to cloud security, including:
- Short Introduction to XaaS
- Challenges in Cloud Security - Management, Process, Data, Communications, Connection to Enterprise
- Differences Between Security of Leading Cloud Providers
- Regulation in the Cloud - Is It Feasible?
17:50 - 18:25 : SaaS as a Security Hazard: The Google Docs Example
Ofer Shezaf, Better Place
As the borderline between a web site and an application blurs, so does the division between the enterprise IT and the internet. More and more enterprises adapt core applications which are provided as a service over the Internet. Until recently those where limited to vertical applications such as salesforce.com for sales automation and monster.com for recruiting, both of which have already suffered major security issues that compromises customer data. Google software push has led to enterprise adaption of general purpose cloud services including office tools, mail and knowledge management, which presents an entirely new risk level.
In this presentation we will discuss the security risks unique to SaaS (Software as a service) and some past attacks on such services. We will than dissect the security implications of using Google sites (which includes Google docs and Gmail) as an example for a SaaS. We will go over a checklist of things to examine in a SaaS before subscribing to ensure that it provides sufficient security and will discuss the solutions offered (or not) by Google to the items listed.
18:25 - 19:00 : SAML
SAML is one of the protocols that have been developed to secure web services, and has been become very popular especially to implement Web SSO and SaaS SSO. In the lecture we will describe the principals of the protocol and demonstrate how it is used to implement Web SSO.
19:00 - 19:30 : XSHM - Cross Site History Manipulation
Alex Roichman, Checkmarx
In this presentation I will introduce a newly discovered SOP (Same Origin Policy) security breach identified as Cross-Site History Manipulation (XSHM). Cross-Site History Manipulation breach is based on our research findings that the client-side browser history object is not properly partitioned on a per-site basis. Manipulating browser history may lead to SOP compromising, allow bi-directional CSRF and other exploitations such as: user privacy violation, login status detection, resource mapping, sensitive information inferring, users' activity tracking and URL parameter stealing. In the presentation I will show how XSHM can be executed, what applications are vulnerable to it, how to detect the flaw and consequently remediate it.
