NEWS - OWASP becomes an affiliate of UMSA in support of the Secure 360 conference.
Secure360°™ is an annual conference providing high quality educational sessions and networking opportunities while working to identify developing trends in risk management, physical security, governance, audit, information security, contingency planning and human capital. As the host of Secure360°, UMSA strives to provide expert speakers, informative educational sessions and a wide range of exhibits for the collective membership and resources of individual associations, supplier partners and general public. (See the Members & Affiliates page for further information.) http://www.secure360.org/index.html
I uploaded the videos and I will follow up with their presentations soon. I apologize for the delay. The video and sound quality is not the best but works. You can get to both videos here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Video#Videos
Tony Stieber will be speaking on Encryption on June 16. See announcement below.
Gunnar Peterson will be presenting "Breaking Web Services" on July 7.
Brian Chess will speak Wednesday September 3rd -"Creating secure code requires more than just good intentions. Programmers need to know how to make their code safe in an almost infinite number of scenarios and configurations. Static source code analysis gives users the ability to review their work with a fine tooth comb and uncover the kinds of errors that lead directly to vulnerabilities. This talk frames the software security problem and shows how static analysis is part of the solution".
Gary McGraw - As I have mentioned previously, we are in the process of organizing a mini conference in Minneapolis for the month of October. I am pleased to announce Gary McGraw has accepted our invitation to be our keynote speaker for this event. He has confirmed so, stay tuned for more details!!
Andrew van der Stock has agreed to visit our chapter and discuss the new Enterprise Security API. We do not have an exact day yet, so stay tuned.
Next meeting: Monday, July 7 at 6:00 pm
Gunnar Peterson - Breaking Web Services
SOA and Web services promise wonderful interoperability, but distributed systems create lots of room for fantastic failures. This session will explore the gory details of unique vulnerabilities at each layer of the SOA stack - from the WSDL interfaces to XML processing (XSD, XPath and XQuery), to the implementation languages liike Java and C#, to new security standards like WS-Security and SAML.
Gunnar gave this talk with Brian Chess at the 2008 RSA Conference.
Gunnar Peterson is a Managing Principal at Arctec Group focused on architecture consulting and training. Peterson is an Associate Editor for IEEE Security & Privacy Journal; leads the OWASP XML Security Gateway Evaluation Criteria project; and contributor to the SEI and DHS Build Security In portal on software security. He maintains a blog at http://1raindrop.typepad.com.

September Meeting: Wednesday September 3rd
Brian Chess (Fortify Software)
Creating secure code requires more than just good intentions. Programmers need to know how to make their code safe in an almost infinite number of scenarios and configurations. Static source code analysis gives users the ability to review their work with a fine tooth comb and uncover the kinds of errors that lead directly to vulnerabilities. This talk frames the software security problem and shows how static analysis is part of the solution.
- The most common security short-cuts and why they lead to security failures
- Why programmers are in the best position to get security right
- Where to look for security problems
- How static analysis helps
- The critical attributes and algorithms that make or break a static analysis tool
We will look at how static analysis works, how to integrate it into the software development processes, and how to make the most of it during security code review.
