'''Topic: Top Ten Web Defenses'''<br>
'''Presenter: Jim Manico<br>'''
'''Summary:''' <br>
Title: Top Ten Web Defenses
We cannot “firewall” or “patch” our way to secure websites. In the past, security professionals thought firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), patching, and privacy policies were enough. Today, however, these methods are outdated and ineffective, as attacks on prominent, well-protected websites are occurring every day. Citigroup, PBS, Sega, Nintendo, Gawker, AT&T, the CIA, the US Senate, NASA, Nasdaq, the NYSE, Zynga, and thousands of others have something in common – all have had websites compromised in the last year. No company or industry is immune. Programmers need to learn to build websites differently. This talk will review the top coding techniques developers need to master in order to build a low-risk, high-security web application.

'''Topic: Putting your robots to work: security automation at Twitter'''<br>
'''Presenter: Neil Matatall and Justin Collins<br>'''
'''Summary:''' <br>
"With daily code releases and a growing infrastructure, manually reviewing code changes and protecting against security regressions quickly becomes impractical. Even when using security tools, whether commercial or open source, the difficult work of integrating them into the development and security cycles remains. We need to use an automated approach to push these tools as close to when the code is written as possible, allowing us to prevent potential vulnerabilities before they are shipped. We worked with development, operations, and release teams to create a targeted suite of tools focused on specific security concerns that are effective and don’t introduce any noise. This presentation will give an overview of what we’ve done over the past year, what we have learned along the way, and will provide advice for anyone else going down this road as well as the philosophy that guided us along the way."<br>

8:15 - 8:30: Brakeman Demo
Brakeman with Justin Collins:
While the popular Ruby on Rails web framework provides built-in protection
for many security vulnerabilities, it is still possible to misuse these
features or introduce other vulnerabilities to an application. Brakeman is a static code analysis tool designed specifically to find vulnerabilities and configuration issues  in Ruby on Rails applications. Since it works at the source code level, Brakeman can be used at any point in development without the need for deploying the full application stack. To make it even simpler,
Brakeman can be integrated with Hudson/Jenkins to provide automatic monitoring of Brakeman results as code is committed. This talk will discuss how to use Brakeman and how it can help you create safer Rails applications.

'''Edward Bonver'''
Talk Title:
Threat Modeling at Symantec
Threat Modeling is one of the most important security activities that a development/QA team needs to perform as part of a Security Development Lifecycle. This activity allows the team to build a complete security profile of the system being built. Threat Modeling is not always easy to get going for a team that has little or no security experience. In this presentation we’ll take a look at why Threat Modeling is so important; we’ll explore the process behind it, and how the process is being implemented and followed across Symantec.
Edward Bonver is a principal software engineer on the product security team under the Office of the CTO at Symantec Corporation.  In this capacity, Edward is responsible for working with software developers and quality assurance (QA) professionals across Symantec to continuously enhance the company’s software security practices through the adoption of methodologies, procedures and tools for secure coding and security testing.  Within Symantec, Edward teaches secure coding and security testing classes for Symantec engineers, and also leads the company’s QA Security Task Force, which he founded.  Prior to joining Symantec, Edward held software engineering and QA roles at Digital Equipment Corporation, Nbase and Zuma Networks.
Edward is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and a Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP).  He holds a master’s degree in computer science from California State University, Northridge, and a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Rochester Institute of Technology.

Title: Do VLANs allow for good application security?
Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) are not a new concept, and can help
any organization better control network access.  I will present some of
the previous issues identified, what was the root cause, and how these
have been fixed in current technology.  In addition we will talk about
how this can help to enhance security in your environment, and what
controls must be in place in order to implement such an environment.  We
will also touch on how this can complicate your application environment,
but improve overall security.
I will touch on the controls that need to be reviewed and audited when
working with VMware, VLANs, and web applications, to ensure that these
networks are secure, and what to look for to potentially pass audit
criteria.  I will also talk about where and how these controls have been
implemented in order to protect thousands of users while accessing one
of the most hostile networks in the world.

'''Title: Pulling the Plug: Security Risks in the Next Generation of Offline Web Applications'''
As the line between desktop and web applications becomes increasingly blurry in a web 2.0 world, browser functionality is being pushed well beyond what it was originally intended for. Persistent client side storage has become a requirement for web applications if they are to be available both online and off. This need is being filled by a variety of technologies such as [http://webkit.org/blog/126/webkit-does-html5-client-side-database-storage Gears (formerly Google Gears) and the Database Storage]  functionality included in the emerging [http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html HTML 5 specification]. While all such technologies offer great promise, it is clear that the vast majority of developers simply do not understand their security implications.
Researching a variety of currently deployed implementations of these technologies has revealed a broad scope of vulnerabilities with frightening implications. Now attackers can target victims not just once, but every time they visit a site as the victim now carries and stores the attack with them. Imagine a scenario whereby updated confidential information is forwarded to an attacker every time a victim interacts with a given we application. The attacker no longer needs to worry about timing their attacks to ensure that the victim is authenticated as the victim attacks himself! Limited storage? Cookies that expire? Not a problem when entire databases are accessible with virtually unlimited storage and an infinite lifespan. Think these attacks are theoretical? Think again. In this talk we dive into these technologies and break down the risk posed by them when not properly understood. We will then detail a variety of real-world vulnerabilities that have been uncovered, including a new class of cross-site scripting and client-side SQL injection.
