Welcome to the OWASP Rochester Local Chapter
Welcome to the local Rochester chapter homepage. The chapter leader is Ralf Durkee
OWASP chapter meetings are free and open to anyone interested in application security. We encourage members to give presentations on specific topics and to contribute to the local chapter by sharing their knowledge with others. Prior to participating with OWASP please review the Chapter Rules.
The Rochester chapter has two mailing lists: one for announcements and one for general discussion. The announce list is for official communications (e.g meeting announcements, web site updates, etc). The discussion list is for general participation and everyone is encouraged to post. The announce mailing list can be found here. The discussion mailing list can be found here. You can also review the announce and discussion e-mail archives to see what folks have been talking about. Please make sure you are subscribed to announce to receive any last minute meeting info.
Meeting Dates & Location
Dates: The third Monday of every month, starting at 6:00 PM.
Types of events: Formal meeting (featuring a presentation) in odd numbered months, informal event (open forum with beer and wings) in even numbered months

September Meeting Details
September meeting will be held on Monday September 22nd, 6pm at Bryant & Stratton College and will feature a videoconference with Jeff Williams, world famous webappsec guru, on verb tampering, EASPI library and the future of OWASP. You can't miss this one!
Presenter: Jeff Williams
Topic: Verb tampering and ESAPI
Bio: Jeff Williams is one of the major contributors in webappsec community. He has written many whitepapers, spoken at many conferences including Secure Software Summit, OWASP conferences, ISSA InfoSec Conference, NSA High Confidence Software and Systems Conference (HCSS), JavaOne, National Computer Security Conference (NCSC), etc, worked on several projects and written many tools available at OWASP (including creating the OWASP Top 10, WebGoat, Stinger, Secure Software Contract Annex, Honeycomb Project and the Enterprise Security API). Jeff has done a lot of work in promoting awareness of web application security. He's CEO of Aspect Security and also volunteers as chairs of OWASP Foundation. You can find more about him on his blog.
Abstract: The ESAPI is a free and open collection of all the security methods that a developer needs to build a secure web application. You can just use the interfaces and build your own implementation using your company's infrastructure. Or, you can use the reference implementation as a starting point. In concept, the API is language independent. However, the first deliverables from the project are a Java API and a Java reference implementation. Efforts to build ESAPI in .NET and PHP are already underway. Unfortunately, the available platforms, frameworks, and toolkits (Java EE, Struts, Spring, etc...) simply do not provide enough protection. This leaves developers with responsibility for designing and building security mechanisms. This reinventing the wheel for every application leads to wasted time and massive security holes. The cost savings through reduced development time, and the increased security due to using heavily analyzed and carefully designed security methods provide developers with a massive advantage over organizations that are trying to deal with security using existing ad hoc secure coding techniques. This API is designed to automatically take care of many aspects of application security, making these issues invisible to the developers.
