OWASP Ireland Limerick Day
Friday, November 9, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM (GMT)
OWASP Ireland Limerick Day 2012 will take place at Absolute Hotel Limerick next November 9th from 2pm to 6pm. As part of this event, the audience will be introduced to various practical and theoretical aspects of Application Security, including the following:
Building Security Into Frameworks presented by Jerry Hoff, VP of the Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security
Who is doing it right. In this talk, Jerry will discuss the importance of security controls in mobile and web frameworks. The talk features a tour through a spectrum of languages and frameworks. A tip of the hat will be given to frameworks and security controls that demonstrably mitigate vulnerabilities, resulting in more secure code. A wag of the finger will be given to frameworks that either lack essential security controls, or implement them improperly. Many of the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and their corresponding security controls will be discussed. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the security libraries available across a wide array of popular web technologies.
- Building Secure Applications: SQLi Training Session presented by Marian Ventuneac, Security Architect, Genworth Financial
For developers and InfoSec professionals alike, this talk will provide a practical approach to identifying and preventing SQL Injection vulnerabilities in Web applications. Testing techniques, tools and secure coding best practices for Java, .NET, PHP, etc will be discussed.
- Unused Assets: Gaining an advantage presented by Mark Goodwin, Security Engineer at Mozilla
Web Application security flaws seem to be getting more and more attention yet developers have never had more tools at their disposal; modern browsers have many security features that are seldom used and there are security tools intended for developers which are almost exclusively used by security people. This talk discusses why this might be the case and looks at some things we can do to catch some security problems early and, in the process, help developers with security awareness.
- Countering jamming attacks against mobile communication presented by Reiner Dojen, Lecturer, Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Limerick
Satellite communications are nowadays employed in the provision of advanced personal communication services. However, interference with the radio transmission medium of satellite communications is a common threat: unintentional interferences occur frequently and jamming attacks can be achieved using low-grade technology. This talk discusses a new DoS attack against protocols for satellite communications, where an attacker interrupts the authentication phase by jamming a single message. A solution for preventing this attack is also presented.
