- Chapter Leader Workshop
The trainings will be held November 18th and 19th, 2012 (Sunday and Monday) at the ANTEL National Telco Company located in downtown Montevideo (conference talks are November 20th and 21st). This year we are offering 3 different courses:
Java Secure Coding
Instructor: Ari Elias-Bachrach, Appsec Labs
Training Audience: Technical
Required Skill Level: Intermediate
In this class we discuss secure coding techniques using Java. It is a very hands-on course with many labs. Everything is done from a developers perspective, NOT a hackers perspective. We make an effort to show what to do, and avoid the usual security paradigm of only discussing what not to do.
The course covers input validation, authentication, authorization, session management, databases, output encoding, error handling, logging, file handling, file uploading, and cryptography.
The class is hands-on and will include labs. Attendees should have a laptop capable of running VMs. We will provide a VM at the beginning of the class.
More details about this class including a detailed outline, are available HERE
Advanced Vulnerability Research and Exploit Development
UPDATE: THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO LOW REGISTRATION NUMBERS
Instructor: Gianni Gnesa, Ptrace Security
Gianni Gnesa, BCS, MSCS, CEH, OSCP, OSEE, Network+, Linux+, is a security researcher and professional trainer at Ptrace Security, a Swiss-based company that offers specialized IT security services to customers worldwide. With several years of experience in vulnerability research, exploit development, and penetration testing, Gianni is an expert in exposing the vulnerabilities of complex commercial products and modern network infrastructures. In his spare time, Gianni conducts independent security research on kernel exploitation and rootkit detection.
Hands on Web Application Testing: Assessing Web Apps the OWASP way
Instructor: Matt Tesauro
Matt Tesauro has worked in web application development and security since 2000. He has worn many different hats, from developer to DBA to System Administrator to Penetration Tester. Matt also taught graduate and undergraduate classes on web application development and XML at Texas A&M University. Currently, he's focused on application security risk assessments at Praetorian. Outside work, he is the project lead for the OWASP Live CD / WTE, a member of the OWASP Foundation board, and part of the Austin OWASP chapter leadership. Matt Tesauro has a B.S. in Economics and a M.S in Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University. He is also has the CISSP, CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker), RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer), and Linux+ certifications.
The goal of the training session is to teach students how to identify, test, and exploit web application vulnerabilities. The creator and project lead of the OWASP Live CD, now recoined OWASP WTE, will be the instructor for this course and WTE will be a major component of the class. Through lecture, demonstrations, and hands on labs, the session will cover the critical areas of web application security testing using the OWASP Testing Guide v3 as the framework and a custom version of OWASP WTE as the platform. Students will be introduced to a number of open source web security testing tools and provided with hands on labs to sharpen their skills and reinforce what they’ve learned. Students will also receive a complementary DVD containing the custom WTE training lab, a copy of the OWASP Testing Guide, handouts and cheat-sheets to use while testing plus several additional OWASP references. Demonstrations and labs will cover both common and esoteric web vulnerabilities and includes topics such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, CSRF and Ajax vulnerabilities. Students are encouraged to continue to use and share the custom WTE lab after the class to further hone their testing skills.
