Meeting date: November 29, 2007
 
Location: Business Objects Main office
 
Attendance: Rodrigo, Rui, Zenko, Russ, Mauro
 
 
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

OAuth-based single sign-on in Real-world Implementations

Speaker: San-Tsai Sung

Date & Time: Monday, May 28th, 2012 @ 5:30pm

Millions of web users today employ their Facebook accounts to sign into more than one million relying party (RP) websites. This web-based single sign-on (SSO) scheme is enabled by OAuth 2.0, a web resource authorization protocol that has been adopted by major service providers. The OAuth 2.0 protocol has proven secure by several formal methods, but whether it is indeed secure in practice remains an open question. We examine the implementations of three major OAuth identity providers (IdP) (Facebook, Microsoft, and Google) and 96 popular RP websites that support the use of Facebook accounts for login. Our results uncover several critical vulnerabilities that allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to the victim user's profile and social graph, and impersonate the victim on the RP website. Closer examination reveals that these vulnerabilities are caused by a set of design decisions that trade security for implementation simplicity. To improve the security of OAuth 2.0 SSO systems in real-world settings, we suggest simple and practical improvements to the design and implementation of IdPs and RPs that can be adopted gradually by individual sites.
