  • Auditing C# Code - Ilja van Sprundel (PDF)
    In this presentation, Ilja van Sprundel, Principal Consultant at IOActive, will discuss reviewing C# code, specifically C# code used for ASP.NET. He will cover entrypoints, exit points, .NET input validators, corner cases of API's, integer rules, managed vs unmanaged code, the garbage collector, exception handling issues, XSS cases, SQL Injection bugs, XML handling issues and usage of Anti-XSS.
  • The Ultimate IDS Smackdown - How red vs. blue situations can influence more than one might assume - Mario Heiderich and Gareth Heyes (PDF)
    The talk is a vector and coding showdown between the lead dev of the PHPIDS and one of its most determined challengers trying and managing to break it wherever possible. Expect a bloody battle between security researchers and developers without limits, regular expression magic against code obfuscation excellence leading to an interesting result about vs-situations in software development and IT security.

  • Hash Cookies - A simple recipe - John Fitzpatrick (PDF)
    Hash cookies is a concept devised in concert with a couple of other guys whilst discussing an application test we were working on. The goal of hash cookies being to make session hijacking attempts infeasible through re-hashing the session cookie on future requests to the server.
    The aim of this talk is to put across the concept of hash cookies and then have the audience don their ninja suits and break it. That way we can work towards a robust secure mechanism for securing sessions which, hopefully, hash cookies is a good solid step towards.
  • OWASP Google Hacking Project - Christian Heinrich (PDF (zipped))
    Two Proof of Concepts (PoC) used during the reconnaissance phase of a penetration test will be demonstrated:
    1. "TCP Input Text" extracts TCP Ports and Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) from Google Search Results into a .csv file and individual shell scripts for nmap and netcat to provide assurance of a listening TCP service since the last crawl performed by the "GoogleBot".
    2. "Download Indexed Cache" retrieves content indexed within the Google Cache and supports the "Search Engine Reconnaissance" section of the recently released OWASP Testing Guide v3. During the demonstration of "Download Indexed Cache", the superiority of this approach will be proven over lesser methodologies, such as "Google Hacking" and the associated Google Hacking Database (GHDB).
    The impact of mitigating controls, such as <META> Tags and robots.txt, based on the recommendations within the "Spiders/Robots/Crawlers" section of the recently released OWASP Testing Guide v3, will be explained.

  • OWASP Global Industry Committee - Colin Watson (PDF)
    The Global Industry Committee was one of six new OWASP committees created during the EU Summit in Portugal last year. Colin Watson will talk about the committee's aims, plan, how to get involved, who it has been engaging with and what else it has been doing in the first few months.
  • The Software Assurance Maturity Model - Introduction and a Use Case - Matt Bartoldus (PDF)
    The OWASP CLASP Project has been going through modification to move more towards a maturity model. As a result, the Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) project has been released in a beta version. The goal is to "define a usable security framework with sequential, measurable goals that can be used by small, medium, and large organisations in any line of business that involves software development". This talk will introduce SAMM and give a brief overview of its contents. We will then discuss how SAMM is currently being used to measure the level of information security activities within an EU based financial organisation's development methodology and providing the framework for implementing such activities into their everyday development activities (SDLC).
  • SQL injection: Not only AND 1=1 - Bernardo Damele A. G. (PDF)
    The presentation will cover a quick preamble on SQL injection definition, sqlmap and its key features. It will then illustrate the details of common and uncommon problems and respective solutions with examples that a penetration tester or a SQL injection tool developer faces when he wants to take advantage of any kind of web application SQL injection flaw on real world web applications, for instance SQL injection in ORDER BY and LIMIT clauses, single entry UNION query SQL injection, blind SQL injection algorithm speed enhancements, specific web application technologies IDS bypasses and more.
