Title: Responsibility for the Harm and Risk of Software Security Flaws

Abstract: Who is responsible for the harm and risk of security flaws? The advent of worldwide networks such as the internet made software security (or the lack of software security) became a problem of international proportions. There are no mathematical/statistical risk models available today to assess networked systems with interdependent failures. Without this tool, decision-makers are bound to overinvest in activities that don’t generate the desired return on investment or under invest on mitigations, risking dreadful consequences. Experience suggests that no party is solely responsible for the harm and risk of software security flaws but a model of partial responsibility can only emerge once the duties and motivations of all parties are examine and understood.

State of the art practices in software development won’t guarantee products free of flaws. The infinite principles of mathematics are not properly implemented in modern computer hardware without having to truncate numbers and calculations. Many of the most common operating systems, network protocols and programming languages used today were first conceived without the basic principles of security in mind. Compromises are made to maintain compatibility of newer versions of these systems with previous versions. Evolving software inherits all flaws and risks that are present in this layered and interdependent solution. Lastly, there are no formal ways to prove software correctness using neither mathematics nor definitive authority to assert the absence of vulnerabilities. The slightest coding error can lead to a fatal flaw. Without a doubt, vulnerabilities in software applications will continue to be part of our daily lives for years to come.

Decisions made by adopters such as whether to install a patch, upgrade a system or employed insecure configurations create externalities that have implications on the security of other systems. Proper cyber hygiene and education are vital to stop the proliferation of computer worms, viruses and botnets. Furthermore, end users, corporations and large governments directly influence software vendors’ decisions to invest on security by voting with their money every time software is purchased or pirated.

Security researchers largely influence the overall state of software security depending on the approach taken to disclose findings. While many believe full disclosure practices helped the software industry to advance security in the past, several of the most devastating computer worms were created by borrowing from information detailed by researcher’s full disclosure. Both incentives and penalties were created for security researchers: a number of stories of vendors suing security researchers are available in the press. Some countries enacted laws banning the use and development of “hacking tools”. At the same time, companies such as iDefense promoted the creation of a market for security vulnerabilities providing rewards that are larger than a year’s worth of salary for a software practitioner in countries such as China and India.

Effective policy and standards can serve as leverage to fix the problem either by providing incentives or penalties. Attempts such PCI created a perverse incentive that diverted decision makers’ goals to compliance instead of security. Stiff mandates and ineffective laws have been observed internationally. Given the fast pace of the industry, laws to combat software vulnerabilities may become obsolete before they are enacted. Alternatively, the government can use its own buying power to encourage adoption of good security standards. One example of this is the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC).

Bio: Cassio Goldschmidt is senior manager of the product security team under the Office of the CTO at Symantec Corporation. In this role he leads efforts across the company to ensure secure development of software products. His responsibilities include managing Symantec’s internal secure software development process, training, threat modeling, penetration testing and vulnerability manegement. Cassio’s background includes over 14 years of technical and managerial experience in the software industry. During the eight years he has been with Symantec, he has helped to architect, design and develop several top selling product releases, conducted numerous security classes, and coordinated various penetration tests. Cassio is also known for leading the OWASP chapter in Los Angeles and is a frequent speaker at security conferences worldwide.

Cassio represents Symantec on the SAFECode technical committee and (ISC)2 in the development of the CSSLP certification. He holds a bachelor degree in computer science from Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande Do Sul, a masters degree in software engineering from Santa Clara University, and a masters of business administration from the University of Southern California.

Title: Business Logic Attacks – BATs and BLBs

Other authors: Amichai Shulman, Rob Rachwald

Abstract: Cyber attacks are being committed more often by professionals, and are increasingly driven by financial motives. Researchers have discovered the increasing popularity of a certain class of attacks that target business logic. Business logic attacks are a set of legal application transactions that are used to carry out a malicious operation that is not part of normal business practices. For example, brute forcing coupon codes in an ecommerce application to receive multiple discounts. This presentation will provide a quick introduction to business logic attacks, their unique characteristics and the motivation behind their uptick. The session will suggest a classification method for these attacks from which attendees can draw a set of required mitigation capabilities. We will discuss capabilities required for detecting automated interaction with the application, different types of repetitions, flow tampering and even compromised credentials. We will also contemplate on the usage of mitigation techniques such as Captcha, introducing delays and more. Concluding this session we will bring up the claim that all these capabilities can be introduced in the form of a "virtual patch" using a web application firewall, rather than being exclusively fixed in application code.

Bio: Amichai Shulman is Co-Founder and CTO of Imperva, where he heads the Application Defense Center (ADC), Imperva's internationally recognized research organization focused on security and compliance. Mr. Shulman regularly lectures at trade conferences and delivers monthly eSeminars. The press draws on Mr. Shulman's expertise to comment on breaking news, including security breaches, mitigation techniques, and related technologies. Under his direction, the ADC has been credited with the discovery of serious vulnerabilities in commercial Web application and database products, including Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft. Prior to Imperva, Mr. Shulman was founder and CTO of Edvice Security Services Ltd., a consulting group that provided application and database security services to major financial institutions, including Web and database penetration testing and security strategy, design and implementation.

Title: Taint Analysis of JavaScript Code to Detect Web Application Vulnerabilities

Abstract: Modern Web applications make increasing use of client-side code, with JavaScript being the most present in most of them. Several vulnerabilities are introduced through the careless use of this language. The publicly available analysis tools are usually based on pattern matching to find potential vulnerabilities, but this is not an efficient approach to analyze large amounts of code. Therefore, there is a need to develop tools to perform more advanced analysis like Taint Analysis and Symbolic Execution. This article discusses various approaches to dynamic analysis of JavaScript code and presents the JsInstrumentator tool, which is being developed by Conviso Security Labs.

Title: The State of XML Digital Signatures --- How to Avoid Technical Pitfalls and Harvest the Power of Newer Signature Schemes

Abstract: XML Digital Signatures are a complex tool, applied right they help to ensure legal compliance, but there are many pitfalls. This talk will provide some basic steps that users and implementers should follow to avoid the pitfalls, among them are:

  • Solid Understanding of the XML Signature processing and verification steps
  • Use of simplistic and coherent references when creating XML Digital Signature
  • Know how to Test what was signed before acting upon it (BitFlip Test)

The Talk will also provide an overview of new applications for recent and more specialized digital signature schemes, like sanitizable signature schemes (academic research since roughly 2000) that allow to deal with the need to modify already signed content. And it will highlight the security relevant changes that are planned for the upcoming version of XML Signature Syntax and Processing 2.0.

Bio: Henrich C. Pöhls has presented his scientific work on digital signatures at several academic conferences (i.e. ICICS, GI, Invited Talks) or to technical audiences (i.e. DFN CERT, OWASP).

Title: Exploring Three Modern Attack Vectors: Insiders, Industrialized and APTs

Abstract: Attacks are coming from all angles. In some cases they are very rudimentary; in others they are highly complex. Organizations must be able to protect themselves regardless, and do so in a way this is in parity with business operations, maintains employee and partner agility, and is manageable without the complexity of the solution being worse than the attack itself.

Failure to address these three different attack types can result in everything from diminished brand loyalty, regulatory penalties, and lost revenue, to stolen intellectual property, economic competitive disadvantage, and military competitive disadvantage. Based on research from McAfee Labs and customer interactions across the globe in the public and private sector, there is much information that can be shared about these attackers and their strategies.

Attendees will leave the presentation more knowledgeable about insider threats, industrialized hacking, and APTs. They will have a strong grasp of the attacker motives and understand their attack vectors. The audience will also be exposed to several non-vender, non-product specific countermeasures that they can leverage within their own organizations.

Bio: Mr. Contos has over 15 years of security engineering and management expertise. He has worked throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. At McAfee he advises government organizations and G2000s on security strategy. He has written two books including Enemy at the Water Cooler – Real Life Stories of Insider Threats, and Physical and Logical Security Convergence which he co-authored with former NSA Deputy Director William Crowell. He has delivered speeches at industry events like RSA, Black Hat, Interop, OWASP, CSI, ISACA, ISSA, InfraGard and eCrime. He is often quoted by business and industry press, and has written articles for Forbes, NY Times, London Times, Computerworld, and many others. He was formerly the Chief Security Strategist for Imperva, the Chief Security Officer for ArcSight, and has held management and engineering positions at Riptech, Bell Labs, Tandem Computers, and DISA.

Jasonli appsecBR2010.jpg
Date and time: November 16th and 17th
Instructor: Jason Li
Training developers on secure coding practices offers one of the highest returns on investment of any security investment by eliminating vulnerabilities at the source. Aspect’s Java EE Secure Coding Training raises developer awareness of application security issues and provides examples of ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do.' The class is lead by an experienced developer and is delivered in a very interactive manner. This class includes hands-on exercises where the students get to perform security analysis and testing on a live Java EE web application. This specially designed environment includes deliberate flaws the students have to find, diagnose, and fix. The class also uses Java EE coding exercises to provide students with realistic hands-on secure coding experience. Students gain hands-on experience using freely available web application security test tools to find and diagnose flaws and learn to avoid them in their own code.

The intended audience for this course is intended for Java EE software developers and Java EE software testers who know how to program.

Using the OWASP ESAPI security API to provide security to web applications

Tutorial in Portuguese.

Date and time: November 16th (9AM to 6PM)
Instructor: Tarcizio Vieira Neto


The evolution of technology in the development of web applications has contributed to a significant increase in the use of this technology to meet the most diverse purposes. However, this technology is subject to critical security vulnerabilities, especially when recent research show that most vulnerabilities are present in the application itself. OWASP's ESAPI library (Enterprise Security API) appears in this scenario as an open source security library available for several languages such as Java EE, PHP,. NET, Classic ASP, Python, Ruby, among others. This short course addresses the vulnerabilities caused by common errors in applications development and security control mechanisms provided by ESAPI with focus on Java technology. The general principles learned in the course can be applied in the context of other programming languages.

Target audience

The desired profile of the audience are people connected to the area of web application development and security, having as a basic pre-requisite knowledge in web technologies, communication protocols HTTP and HTTPS, basic principles of security: encryption, hashing and digital signature, Java programming for Web systems.

Learning objectives

  • Know the main security vulnerabilities commonly found in Web applications
  • Present the architecture of the ESAPI library and the operation of its modules with examples in Java.
  • Present Web Application Firewall component of ESAPI.

The Art and Science of Threat Modeling Web Applications

This tutorial is in English without translation.

Date and Time: November 17 (9AM to 6PM)
Instructor: Mano Paul


To secure your home, you will first need to know how the thief could possibly enter and exit and where you should store your valuables. The same is true of your web applications. Unless you know what the vulnerabilities and threats of your web applications are, and what security measures you should take to protect them, ev1L h@x0rS or the enemy within (insider) could take advantage of the vulnerabilities.

Threat Modeling is a technique that you can use to identify ATVS (attacks, threats, vulnerabilities and safeguards) that could affect your web applications. Threat Modeling helps in designing your application securely from a confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication, authorization and auditing perspective. It is an essential activity to be undertaken during the design stage of your SDLC and helps mitigate and minimize overall risk.

Target udience

The target audience is made of technical staff and management of system development organizations, with no required knowledge of languages or specific programming techniques.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand Threat Modeling; when to threat model and when not too
  2. Translation of threats to risks for the organization
  3. Have fun learning complex concepts with exercises and interactive games

Instructors: Douglas Rodrigues, Julio Cesar Estrella e Nuno Manuel dos Santos Antunes


Web services are the cornerstone of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). As critical components of business, Web services must provide high security. However, the deployment of secure Web services is a complex task. In fact, several studies show that a large number of Web Services are deployed with security breaches ranging from code vulnerabilities (eg vulnerabilities that allow code injection, including SQL injection and XPath injection) to the incorrect use of standards and security protocols. The aim of this short course is to present the theoretical and practical tools that allow the detection of vulnerabilities and security protocols and mechanisms against attacks.

Público Alvo

The target audience is composed of technical staff and operational systems development organizations with requirements for knowledge of languages and programming methodologies at the intermediate level.

Learning Objectives

The proposed short course contributes to add new technological trends. The theme is quite interesting in relation to the great challenges of research in computing, since it fits naturally within the technological development of quality, encompassing making systems available, accurate, secure, scalable, persistent and ubiquitous, and notoriously, observing the conference area, which SOA, Web services and security are the subject of growing research in computing, as it is current and of interest to the academic community, as well as professionals who work in the labor market. The interest in SOA has grown in recent years because it is an approach that helps the system to remain flexible and scalable as they grow, and can also help to resolve the gap business / IT. Students and professionals will have the opportunity to understand the basics of vulnerability detection code level and also to detect attacks between protocols and mechanisms. The idea is that participants can use the knowledge gained in this brief short course for the development of distributed applications using Web services secure and obtain knowledge needed to diagnose and prevent attacks on this type of application.

Black-Box & White-Box ASP.NET Security Reviews using the OWASP O2 Platform

Thsi tutorial will be in Portuguese with materials in English

Date and time: November 16th (9AM to 6 PM)
Instructor: Dinis Cruz


This is a hands-on Training course on how to use the OWASP O2 Platform to perform both Black-Box and White-Box security reviews on ASP.NET Web Applications

The course is designed for security consultants/developers who are responsible for performing Penetration Tests or Security Code Reviews. The course will show practical examples of how to use the OWASP O2 Platform to find, exploit and document security vulnerabities.

For the course's labs, a number of test and real-world applications/frameworks will be used. In order to give the students a benign test enviroment which is easy to replicate, the (vulnerable-by-design) HacmeBank ASP.NET banking application will be used throughout the course.


  • What is the OWASP O2 Platform and how to use it?
  • Using O2's Unit Tests for web exploration and browsing
  • Using O2's Unit Tests for web exploitation
  • Understanding and using O2's Web Automation Tools to find and exploit vulnerabilities in HacmeBank (Black-Box)
  • Understanding and using O2's AST .NET Scanner to find vulnerabilities in HacmeBank (White-Box)
  • Connecting the source-code traces with the web exploits to create a unified view of the vulnerabilties
  • Create 'Vulnerability-driven Unit Tests' to be delivered to Developers, QA/Testers and Managers
  • Customizing and writing new APIs (for new or modified frameworks)
  • Using O2 to consume results from open source tools and 3rd party commercial vendors
  • Case Study: Microsoft ASP.NET MVC
  • Case Study: Microsoft Sharpoint


The course is delivered by Dinis Cruz who the lead developer of the OWASP O2 Platform and has created and delivered a number of .NET Security training courses
