Delaware Chapter of OWASP Meeting

Delaware Chapter of OWASP Meeting held July 10th, 2014

The Delaware Chapter of OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project), led by David Rhoades, met on July 10th at Wilmington University’s New Castle campus. About twenty-five Wilmington University Computer & Network Security students and industry professionals were treated to two excellent and relevant presentations:

  • “How To Build a Robust Application Security Model For Free or Why Security Consultants Are Blood Sucking Parasites”
  • “Getting Your Foo On: A Turbo Talk To Illustrate a Specific Web Application Security Task”

The “Robust Application” talk focused on the software development process and where security should be included to minimize cost and…well, embarrassment.

“Getting Your Foo On,” presented by David, demonstrated testing web applications for vulnerability to a man-in-the-middle attack. Pretty fascinating stuff!
