Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 - 5:00pm - South Florida OWASP Meeting – Two great talks and networking after

Join us for our April meeting where we will have two great talks. Please note that the scheduled talks are for 60 minutes each with a small break in between. We will have a networking event after as usual.

Talk 1: Threat Modeling As we focus on the threats that plaque our organizations we not only need to understand the threat but also understand the steps used by the attackers. Profiling these attacks enables threat modeling allowing yourself and your organization to understand how to successfully position yourself against threat actors and adversaries. In this session I will share some high level attack profiles or patterns and how we should look at them to successfully set your organizational course and security strategy. I will also share some detailed models which he has previously developed to help organizations successfully model for web application threats.

Throughout his career James has delivered solutions for network architecture and application security, penetration testing, incident response, security and risk assessment, forensics and investigations and product security.

Talk 2: Adding Security to BPEL Workflows of Web Services BPEL (Business Process Enterprise Language) is a language for web services composition and several implementations of it exist. For BPEL to be effective, it is necessary that it provides more support for security. BPEL doesn’t present any means to specify security constraints for workflows. BPEL through its activities tries to provide specific functional aspects and any non-functional aspects are expected to be addressed by other (lower-level) specifications. We present here a way to specify security requirements in BPEL. Since BPEL describes workflows, we present its activities using UML activity diagrams, where we apply a threat enumeration approach to determine the required security mechanisms to stop these threats. Our approach goes beyond BPEL and can be applied to BPMN and other business flow languages.

Wednesday, Sept 26, 2012 - 5:00pm - South Florida OWASP Meeting - Two great talks and networking after

Join us for our September meeting where we will have two great talks. Please note that the scheduled talks are for 30 minutes each with a small break in between. We will have a networking event after as usual. Our event sponsor, NoVA will also be there with some important announcements

Talk 1: Application Vulnerability Assessment Risk (AVAR) Score

During application vulnerability assessment a number of vulnerabilities may be discovered. Issues discovered during this assessment are given a risk score value or a rating of High, Medium, or Low; mostly based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) or Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) risk classification of known vulnerabilities. The industry application vulnerability risk classification models assign a risk level to an issue based on the impact of the specific vulnerability. They do not put into consideration the likelihood of occurrence based on known reported incidents or the impact of interdependencies between related vulnerabilities. The AVAR Score has implemented an approach that provides a holistic analysis on the risk of an application based on the interdependencies of related vulnerabilities and the probability of occurrence.


Bio: An avid learner, Jummy has a degree in Engineering Physics but has always been interested in information security and she decided to make a career of it. Over the years, Jummy’s work has included application vulnerability assessments, security audits, and risk assessments for a wide variety of local, national, and international organizations. When she is not occupied with work she tries to invent new cooking recipes and she also volunteers as a mentor to young adults.


Talk 2: JSON Hijacking

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a language and platform independent format for data interchange. JSON is in widespread use with a number of JSON parsers and libraries available for different languages. While some information is available for JSON Hijacking this attack is not very well understood.

Rohini Sulatycki will give an overview of this attack as well as provide a demonstration.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 6:00pm - South Florida OWASP Meeting - Two great talks and networking after

Join us for our June meeting where we will have two great talks. Please note that the scheduled talks are for 30 minutes each with a small break in between. We will have a networking event after as usual.

Talk 1: Bad encryption implementations using PBKDF2

PBKDF2 is a popular way to generate long encryption keys from human-memorable passwords and passphrases. Used properly, it can keep encrypted sensitive data safe from attackers long enough for its ultimate compromise to be almost moot (assuming the attacker doesn't lose interest and give up first). Used badly, in conjunction with poorly-implemented AES encryption, it will protect sensitive data for approximately 5 minutes against an attacker with a 2 year old laptop and a list of compromised real-world passwords obtained from popular websites.

Presenter Bio: Jeff Skubick is a security analyst with more than a decade of professional experience developing mobile and web applications for companies like Verizon, and a lifetime of recreational hacking that extends far enough back into childhood to remember what happens when you JSR to $FFD2. His second language was 6502 assembly. As a teenager, he doubled his Amiga’s RAM by soldering piggybacked chips onto the motherboard, then spent 10 minutes on the phone with Dave Haynie learning what a "slow PAL" was. In his spare time, he invalidates warranties, builds robots, and takes liberties with local building codes in the name of home automation. He will never, ever make the mistake of buying another Motorola Android phone with a locked bootloader.

Talk 2: Mobile Framework vulnerabilities

Mobile frameworks are being used for cross-platform development and to ease development efforts in producing applications for iOS/Android/Blackberry devices. In this talk we observe bad development practices and expose some issues found in open source frameworks, notably Apache Cordova (previously known as "PhoneGap").

Presenter Bio: Claudio J. Lacayo causes 500 response errors in web applications and is currently evangelizing the use of native code over frameworks.

Thursday. February 23, 2012 - 5:00pm - South Florida OWASP Meeting - Two great talks and networking after

Join us for our February meeting where in alignment with our previous announcement, we will have two great talks. Please note that food and drink after the meeting will also be sponsored by WhiteHat.

Talk 1: Future of Cross Site Scripting defenses

This talk will discuss the past methods used for cross-site scripting (XSS) defense that were only partially effective. Learning from these lessons, we will also discuss present day defensive methodologies that are effective, but place an undue burden on the developer. We will then finish with a discussion of future XSS defense mythologies that shift the burden of XSS defense from the developer to various frameworks. These include auto-escaping template technologies, browser-based defenses such as Content Security Policy, and Javascript sandboxes such as the Google CAJA project and JSReg.

Presenter Bio: Jim Manico is the VP of Security Architecture for WhiteHat Security, a web security firm. Jim is a participant and project manager of the OWASP Developer Cheatsheet series. He is also the producer and host of the OWASP Podcast Series.

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. Edward is a Ph.D. student at NOVA Southeastern University.

Talk: The State of Web Application Security It's no secret that more and more commerce is being conducted via Web applications. Web-based applications are convenient for consumers and allow vendors to get applications online quickly to reach those consumers. This trend has also created a variety of privacy and security concerns that affect all companies transacting business over the Web. Recently, Barracuda networks co-sponsored a research study conducted by the Ponemon Institute titled "The State of Web Application Security" that revealed that these concerns are keenly felt by web application administrators. However, a major disconnect exists as appropriate countermeasures to these threats are either ineffective or completely non-existent. Join us for an informative seminar to learn:

More about our revealing research,

Why Web applications are under attack,

What hackers are doing to compromise Web applications

How to mitigate this risk.

Bio: Grant Murphy, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Barracuda Networks Grant Murphy is Vice President of Enterprise Solutions managing worldwide sales for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall and the Web Filtering products at Barracuda Networks.

Abstract: Improving application security with ESAPI Swingset
The primary aim of the OWASP Top 10 is to educate developers, designers, architects and organisations about the consequences of the most important web application security weaknesses. ESAPI is Enterprise security API's for remediation of OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities. The ESAPI libraries are designed to make it easier for programmers to retrofit security into existing applications.
The ESAPI Swingset is a web application which demonstrates common security vulnerabilities and asks users to secure the application against these vulnerabilities using the ESAPI libraries. The application is intended for Java Developers. The goal of the application is to teach developers about the functionality of the ESAPI libraries and give users a practical understanding of how it can be used to protect web applications against common security vulnerabilities.
