Framework of Risk Management & Analysis (FoRMA) for Secure Software Development
Presented by: Kris Kahn, Sr. Governance Analyst, Seagate Technology
Abstract: We frequently apply Risk Management concepts in our daily lives, whether it’s driving in the rain on the freeway, or crossing a busy intersection. It comes down to making a choice, taking a calculated risk to reach our objective. We decide quickly, making assumptions about the threats and about our environment. The lessons we learn from our failures help us make wiser decisions next time, if we survive.

Using a new Framework of Risk Management & Analysis (FoRMA) for Secure Software Development, we will be able to make better decisions by understanding our threats. FoRMA will help us ensure that we have the appropriate level of protection to maximize our business objectives, increasing quality and minimizing cost.

JavaScript Attacks and Threats to Intranet Applications
Presented by: Jeremiah Grossman, Founder and CTO, WhiteHat Security
Abstract: Malicious JavaScript is capable of stealing cookies, capturing keystrokes, monitoring activity and planting root kits. Attackers are using JavaScript to hijack browser sessions to commit bank fraud, hack other websites, or post derogatory comments in a public forum – all without traces, tracks or warning sirens. Web application security research is revealing that outsiders can also use these hijacked browsers to exploit intranet websites.

Most assume while surfing the Web we are protected by firewalls that are isolated through private networks. We believe nothing is capable of directly connecting in from the outside world. Right? Well, not quite. Web browsers can be completely controlled by any web page, enabling them to become launching points to attack internal network resources.

The web browser of every user on an enterprise network becomes a stepping stone for intruders. During this presentation we'll demonstrate a wide variety of cutting-edge web application attack techniques and describe best practices for securing websites and users against these threats.

You’ll see

    * Port scanning and attacking intranet devices using JavaScript
    * Blind web server fingerprinting using unique URLs
    * Discovery NAT'ed IP addresses with Java Applets
    * Stealing web browser history with Cascading Style Sheets
    * Best-practice defense measures for securing websites
    * Essential habits for safe web surfing
