TOPIC: How to Test the Security of Web Applications
This session aims to help you organize and execute security testing for web applications in a consistent manner. We will review the OWASP Testing Framework and the OWASP Testing Guide and discuss how you can use them to increase assurance that your web applications are secure from known threats. Tools and techniques will be demonstrated as they relate to the testing methodology. Please bring questions - the goal is to make this something practical rather than just a "nice presentation." The types of tests that will be covered are:
- Information Gathering
- Business Logic Testing
- Authentication Testing
- Session Management Testing
- Data Validation Testing
- Denial of Service Testing
- Web Services Testing
- Ajax Testing
