Evading SQL injection detection through encoding
The purpose of this presentation is to give a basic understanding of how character set encoding can be used to evade common SQL injection detection techniques. It will start with a brief introduction to character set encoding to give the viewer the necessary overview to adequately understand the attack vectors. It will then move on to quickly describe normal SQL injection techniques and their detection and then go into detail on using character set encoding to bypass conventional detection methods. Practical examples will be shown along with methods to prevent these attacks.

Software Assurance Maturity Model 1.0
he Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) is now an OWASP project and in March became release quality. What is software assurance? What is a maturity model? What is SAMM? The presentation will explain how SAMM can be used to assess and improve software development security practices, reducing security risk and increasing software assurance, in all sizes of organisation.
Colin Watson's initial work was in the production and process engineering fields, but since completing an MSc in Computation at the University of Oxford in 1995, he has been employed in web software development, with an increasing focus on the security aspects. He is now a consultant, based mainly in London, working with developers, testers, auditors and people from a non-IT background to improve security practices. Colin joined the OWASP Global Industry Committee in January 2009.
