First off, I apologize for cross-posting to a few different meetup groups but wanted to make sure we got the word out for an exciting speaker at our next OWASP Orlando meeting tomorrow night. Kevin Johnson, a senior instructor with the SANS Institute and creator of such noted open source projects as Laudanum, Yokoso, Base, Samurai-WTF, Damn Vulnerable Web Services (integrates with Damn Vulnerable Web App) will be giving a presentation on hacking web services. If you have not seen Kevin speak before, you are really missing out. I know of no better presenter on web application security topics than Kevin. There is no cost to attend, but we ask that you register at the link below so I know how much food to buy. We hope to see you there!

Q3 2012 Meeting September 12

5:45 - 6:00 Arrive

6:00 - 6:15 Welcome and Opening Remarks / Appsec Trivia

6:15 - 7:00 "An Insider's Look: WAF and Identity and Access Management Integration" - Jan Poczobutt, Director of Enterprise ADC & WAF Sales at Barracuda Networks, will provide an inside look at some of the problems with traditional access management implementations and how enterprises can sucessfully overcome these challenges by integrating web application firewall technologies with Identity and Access Management. Learn about best practices, specific use cases and how this new integration translates into operational simplicity for the enterprise.

7:00 - 7:15 Break

7:15 - 8:00+ "Don't Drop the SOAP: Real World Web Service Testing for Web Hackers" - Over the years web services have become an integral part of web and mobile applications. From critical business applications like SAP to mobile applications used by millions, web services are becoming more of an attack vector than ever before. Unfortunately, penetration testers haven't kept up with the popularity of web services, recent advancements in web service technology, testing methodologies and tools. In fact, most of the methodologies and tools currently available either don't work properly, are poorly designed or don't fully test for real world web service vulnerabilities. In addition, environments for testing web service tools and attack techniques have been limited to home grown solutions or worse yet, production environments.


In this presentation Kevin Johnson will discuss the new security issues with web services and discuss an updated web service testing methodology released at Defcon 19 last year that will be integrated into the OWASP testing guide, new Metasploit modules and exploits for attacking web services and an open source vulnerable web service for the Samurai-WTF (Web Testing Framework) that can be used by penetration testers to test web service attack tools and techniques.
