18:30 Talk: PRSSI Quirks - James Kettle
James Kettle is a web security researcher on the Burp Suite team. He will be talking about a prevalent but little-understood web vulnerability, with a real example of a recent 0day in a popular web platform.
19:15 Talk: OWASP ZAP 2.4.0 - Simon Bennetts
ZAP is an OWASP Flagship project and the most active open source web application scanner. Simon is the OWASP ZAP project lead and works for Mozilla as part of their security team. In this talk Simon will give an overview of the new features available in the forthcoming 2.4.0 release.
20:00 Talk: Burp Collaborator - Dafydd Stuttard
Dafydd Stuttard is the creator of Burp Suite and author of The Web Application Hacker's Handbook. He will be talking about a new technique for web testing that will soon be available in Burp Suite, and which will enable the automated and manual discovery of many types of vulnerability that currently elude all but the best penetration testers.
This will probably be the only chance this year to hear about both the new features in Burp and ZAP from the respective project leaders, so we expect this event to be very popular - book now!
