Artifacts - OWASP DAY: on the topic of "Privacy in the 21st Century" - September 8 (Turkey 2007)
- Turkish Subtitle for Jeff's OWASP Day Intro movie (delete .ppt extension)
Q1. What is the current state of Privacy on Web Application Security? Does it really matter? Is privacy what will drive radical changes in web application's security (ala PCI)?
A1. During the meeting an effort was made to clarify the meaning of privacy;
- what are the key items that builds up to "privacy"? - are we talking about the privacy of real people or should we also include the privacy of legal entities? - is there really a solid line (or even a vague line) between confidentiality and privacy?
We defined privacy as confidentiality of the data; be it of a real person or a legal entity. But the key part is that privacy is "the ability to control the flow of one's own data". And which brings another principle: "need to know". Privacy is directly related to an individual or an organization. Confidentiality, however, is directly related to "information"... Privacy is a "result" and confidentiality is a tenet or a security mechanism.
Enough of these convulsions; The answer to the first question was a definite "YES". Participants were all agreed that "privacy" plays and will play the most important role in web security and its future.
Q2. Application side: what the data owner should be doing to protect the user's privacy? Should there be a law that states how to protect this information? What can we do to improve it?
A2. Most of the participants agreed that a law is a necessity. But, maybe, more important thing is to raise the awareness of the customers. Here we also had a discussion on the current status of the law on privacy? There are mainly three documents on privacy in Turkish law;
* a directive on privacy in telecommunication, which happened to be inadequate (an assertion of a lawyer) * a draft law on privacy from Department of Justice, which is still in the process of approval * a recent (May 2007) law on siber crimes which happens to be similiar to the "Directive 2006/24/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council" on the data retention. This law, however, still needs a few directives, which are about to be published.
Q3. Client side: what is the client's perception of privacy? How can a user trust a site about his own data treatment? Is the client nowadays safeguarded about a possible loss of privacy?
A3. As a first step there should be an "agreement" presented to the user by the application side. This wouldn't be enough so there should be regular inspections (a third eye) on these services. About "is the client nowadays safeguarded about a possible loss of privacy?" question, the answer was a definite "NO". Especially with the banks. Yes, there are a few cases of trials where the courts dictated a bank to compansate the loss of the victim, however, mostly this is not the case. Even there is a domain serving, founded by the victims of online banking crimes in Turkey.
Q4. What should OWASP be focusing on?
A4. As a suggestion, OWASP may provide a "web security tips" page, which can include a searchable gui on small programming tips to avoid security holes in web applications.
And a great idea of producing a "FixmeBank" application to cover the developer side of the story, as opposed to tester/attacker side (via WebGoat or HacmeBank), was suggested by Taygun Alban.
Q5. What would OWASP spend it's grant money? (note that new OWASP members can allocate some or all of their membership fees to specific projects)
A5. Some suggestions; . Printed booklets of Guide and Testing Guide. . OWASP CD with shiny labels . I'm afraid to say but... t-shirts
Q6. Should OWASP organize such 'OWASP Weeks' every quarter?
A6. OWASP should organize these events every 6 months or so :)
