Talk 1: Introduction to OWASP ZAP

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications. This talk will describe the tool and how to use it for validating web application security.

Talk 2: Exploiting a Vulnerable website to steal user credentials and gain root

This talk will describe how user authentication credentials can hijacked on a vulnerable website, using a practical demo. It will also demonstrate the compromise of a webserver hosting a vulnerble web application.

In this meetup up, we'll be rolling up our sleeves and digging into practical application threat modeling and risk analysis.

Hope to see you there.

Security Architecture and Design Through Threat Modeling

Threat modeling is an approach for analyzing the security of an application. It is a structured approach that enables you to identify, quantify, and address the security risks associated with the application.

In this participatory workshop, we'll unlock the shrouded mysteries of threat modeling, revealing the inner secrets. We will grapple with thorny issues like decomposition of the system architecture, appropriate architectural views, and assessing risk. Our practical examples and exercises will relevant to different software types such as web applications, mobile and desktop thick clients.

At the end of the session, you should prepared to commence the rewarding journey of architecting and designing secure applications.

Chapter meetings are provided free of charge although OWASP membership is encouraged and besides supporting the organisation, will provide the holder with benefits in other areas such as free/discounted entry to conferences, etc.
