2010 Meetings Calendar
This calendar will likely be updated on month to month basis. In absence of a speaker for a monthly meeting we will opt for a short discussion.
- March 2, Meeting potentially cancelled due to timing with the RSA Security Conference in San Francisco
- April 6, "Protecting Your Applications from Backdoors: How to Secure Your Business Critical Applications from Time Bombs, Backdoors & Data" Mr. Jill Naymie, Veracode
- With the increasing practice of outsourcing and using 3rd party libraries, it is nearly impossible for an enterprise to identify the pedigree and security of the software running its business critical applications. As a result backdoors and malicious code are increasingly becoming the prevalent attack vector used by hackers.
- Whether you manage internal development activities, work with third party developers or are developing a COTS application for enterprise, your mandate is clear- safeguard your code and make applications security a priority for internal and external development teams.
- In this session we will cover:
- Prevalence of backdoors and malicious code in third party attacks
- Definitions and classifications of backdoors and their impact on your applications
- Methods to identify, track and remediate these vulnerabilities
This chapter is dedicated to bringing together local businesses, students, and web and security enthusiasts in order to discuss current events, trends, tools, and offensive/defensive techniques related to web application security. We currently hold meetings every month, typically with one or two speakers at each meeting.

Data@Risk â Protecting Web Applications Throughout the Development Lifecycle from Hackers - Brian Christian
Brian Christian, Co-founder and Application Security Engineer, S.P.I. Dynamics, Inc. discussed what Web application security is and why it is needed throughout the entire development lifecycle. We will discuss common vulnerabilities in the Web application layer and why they are so easily exploited. This session demonstrates how to defend against common attacks at the Web application layer with examples covering Web application hacking methods such as SQL Injection, Blind SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Parameter Manipulation, etc. We will also review how compliance and regulatory legislation such as PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, CASB 1386, and Sarbanes-Oxley, etc. specifically relates to and affects Web application security. Additionally, we will examine how security throughout the development lifecycle is essential to the security of Web application code and the protection of proprietary data.
Web Application 0-Day â Jon Rose
Learn about how to identify, exploit, and remediate some of the most common security vulnerabilities in web applications. Weâll be using real-world examples in a dynamic, fun, and open discussion using publicly available source code.
Building Application Security into the SDLC - Adam Muntner
Adam will share his experiences about how organizations can integrate application security into all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle, from the creation of functional specifications all the way through deployment, maintenance, and updates. He will explain how to "bake security in" rather than "ice it on."
