This evening, we are lucky to have Erlend Oftedal visiting and over two sessions, help us to develop more secure applications.
Erlend is passionate about application security. He works as CTO at Blank Oslo and spends most of his days working on securing applications by writing secure code or testing the security of applications. He also develops open source security tools and goes bug bounty hunting. He is the chapter lead of the OWASP Norway chapter, and has spoken at conferences like JavaZone, NDC and OWASP AppSec Europe.
The anatomy of the attack
We will look at the details of some of the attacks we've seen the last years, and see how the attack progresses and what the attacker is doing. What are the different phases of the attack, and which actions are performed. What can we do to test ourselves and limit the attack surface?
Your applications are out of date
Third party software really helps us build software quickly, but can also cause us severe pain. We will look at what the problem is, and what we can do about it.
