A reminder that CISSPs can earn 1 CPE credit for every hour of attendance at OWASP meetings.

Next Meeting

Our next quarterly meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The meeting will be held at our usual location; the Kforce building in Ybor.

Please RSVP to the chapter leader by Monday, February 16, 2009 so that we can add you to the security list. Matt Flick, Principal at FYRM Associates, will be presenting his Black Hat DC 2009 talk: XSS Anonymous Browser.

"Current anonymous Internet browsing applications build dynamic routes using a network of willing hosts and layers of encryption along the route. The cross site scripting anonymous browser ("XAB") exploits vulnerable web sites/applications and victim browsers to build a network of drones. The intent of XAB is not to replace the current applications, such as Tor, but rather to provide an alternative that does not require willing participants and further stretches the functionality and intent of JavaScript and other browser technology."

Meeting Location

We meet quarterly at the Kforce building in Ybor. The address is:

1001 East Palm Ave. Tampa, FL 33605

Park in the Visitor spaces in the main parking lot that is off of East Palm Avenue. You will need to identify yourself at the security desk and ask how to get to Training Room B.
