OWASP San Diego – Things That Go Wrong With Web Application Encryption
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Chapter in San Diego is convening to discuss the latest developments in the OWASP organization, and new ideas in leading-edge secure web development. While the CRIME, BEAST, and padding oracle attacks have received a lot of recent attention, there are plenty of things that can go wrong with web application cryptography before even getting to those exploits. Gabriel Lawrence will guide us into a look at how documentation fails developers and how their use of cryptography within their applications is commonly broken. Whether you’re a seasoned security professional or an executive with high focus on mitigating IT risk, this event will take you beyond the OWASP Top 10 by providing valuable insight into common mistakes that can put your organization at risk. Enjoy refreshments from our friends at HP as you network with some of the best security researchers, auditors, and developers in the San Diego area. Intuit is graciously hosting this event at their San Diego office and we look forward to seeing you there!
