'''Outsourcing Identity: Understanding Privacy and Security in Identity Services'''
  
We are pleased to announce the next OWASP Vancouver meeting! This month we have two speakers, Vishal Khandve and San-Tsai Sun.
+
'''Speaker:''' Yvan Boily, Web Security Engineer, Mozilla Corporation
  
*Speaker: Vishal Khandve
+
'''Date & Time:''' Monday, January 23rd, 2012 @ 5:30pm
*Topic : An Overview of the Microsoft SDL.
+
  
*Presentation Abstract:
+
Social Media has taken over the online world; what Microsoft attempted with Passport has been made reality by Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other service providers. In addition to the proprietary identity services these platforms offer, several support protocols such as OpenID, This will be a one hour presentation that will contrast the security and privacy features available in major online identity protocols, and contrast these with Mozilla's BrowserID protocol.
A presentation on individual Microsoft security development practices, which includes:
+
Roles and responsibilities for individuals involved in the application development process.
+
Mandatory security activities.
+
Optional security activities.
+
Application security verification process.
+

*Title : OpenID Security Analysis and Evaluation
+
''(Registration details are not retained after the meeting, however a sign-up sheet will be available for those claiming CPEs)''
  
*Presentation Abstract:
+
'''Location:'''
OpenID is a promising user-centric Web single sign-on protocol. According to the OpenID Foundation, there are currently more than one billion OpenID-enabled user accounts provided by major service providers such as Google, Yahoo and AOL. In this presentation, I will present OpenID security analysis and the evaluation results on 200 OpenID-enabled websites.  Our preliminary result shows that more than 50% of OpenID-enabled websites are vulnerable to cross-site request forgery attack (CSRF) that allow an attacker to modify the victim's account profile information directly; and  75% of evaluated websites allow an attacker to force the victim to login their websites as the attacker stealthily. With additional practical adversary capabilities (e.g., trick users to use a malicious wireless access point or install a malicious browser extension) that enable an attacker to intercept the authentication response from the identity provider, the attacker can impersonate the victim on 65% of OpenID-enabled websites and re-masquerade the victim on 6% of the websites by simply applying the intercepted authentication responses. To the end, I will demonstrate the attack vectors employed in the evaluation process and discuss our proposed countermeasure for the current OpenID-enabled websites and future OpenID specification.

This meeting featured two presentations on PCI compliance and certification from IPS. 
 
 
*Speakers:
 
Santosh Nair (Chief Technology Officer) and Don Bowen (Senior Account Manager), IPS
 
 
* Topic:
 
Organizations today are faced with a host of regulatory compliance requirements, such as PCI, SOX and NERC. It has become increasingly important for organizations to ensure payment account data security through compliance with the PCI DSS. Don and Santosh will attempt to demystify some of the myths and questions that commonly trouble PCI level 3 and 4 merchants. They will also discuss why the PCI DSS is necessary and provide an auditor’s perspective on what is required to achieve compliance through completing a “Self Assessment Questionnaire”.

The meeting started with an introduction of the OWASP group and its objectives: goals and projects that OWASP is leading.
 
There are various open source projects that the OWASP team has been a part of, namely, the OWASP top ten list of vulnerabilities; CLASP ( a guideline for companies to address security issues in their products ); GOAT ( practice your hacking skills on their machines); Web Scarab; plus other scanning/hacking tools.
 
 
We then introduced the OWASP Vancouver chapter: lately the chapter has been a little be dormant and all the presents agreed to provide help to revamp the chapter.
 
The objective of the OWASP Vancouver chapter is to promote web application security and security awareness in the community.
 
 
In the fall off 2007 the Vancouver chapter reached into the other Vancouver security and technical groups. Some groups as for example SIG Security and Vantug have been interested to hear more about OWASP and the asked for presentations. More presentation can be done to these groups in the next year. We all agree that reaching into Vancouver groups is an important goal for the OWASP Vancouver chapter.
 
 
Another goal of the group is to facilitate some technical discussion and presentation on the security field. Some of the topics of interest are the following:
 
 
* Honeypot;
 
* Vulnerabilities;
 
* Secure Development LifeCycle;
 
* Hands on seminar using various security/pen tools;
 
* Wireless security;
 
* Http and basic encryption;
 
* Forensic;
 
* Law and enforcement in security;
 
* International security groups like CISSP or SANS.
 
 
We've also discussed the possibility to promote OWASP in the community and other groups and to capturing new membership through social sites such as Tazzu.com and meetup.com.
 
 
The next meeting is planned for the end of January
