Upcoming Meetings

I am pleased to announce that the details for our next OWASP Kansas City chapter meeting have been finalized. We will get together on Wednesday, November 7th starting at 6:00 PM and finishing around 7:30 PM. Add the event to your calendar today so you don't miss this opportunity to learn about web application security and network with your peers.

Here is the presentation planned for this meeting:

Security Access Mark-up Language (SAML) & Single Sign-on Implementation Presented by Karen Fritsche and Sarah Heinen

To accomplish a Web Single Sign-On application with their brokerage back office vendor, American Century Investments solution included the use of SAML. This presentation will provide an overview of: SAML, its benefits and several Single Sign-On options; integration, architecture and configuration options; and the SAML SSO implementation completed by American Century Investments.

Karen Fritsche is an Application Architect and Sarah Heinen is a Programmer / Analyst with American Century Investments in Kansas City. As part of the IT application development team that supports the company's retail web sites and, they focus on the secure on-line financial transactions of the sites, either through internal services or by establishing single sign-on connectivity to third party vendor sites.

  • We have time for another person to give a brief 15-45 minute presentation on web application security. This can be a technical demonstration, conference review, or open discussion about a web application security topic. Please let me know if you'd like to grab this spot.
