What we're about

You are a critical thinker, a software developer/architect/engineer/..., a penetration tester, some coloured hat or simply interested in our topics? Then please attend one of our next meetings and bring along your questions, thoughts and own experiences.

As usual, all of our meetings are open to everyone and free of charge.

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501c3 not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization focused on improving the security of application software.

Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license.

OWASP API Security Top 10

Online event

In December 2019, OWASP published its first top 10 risk list for API security. With this step, OWASP confirms the increasing importance of API security for companies. The talk looks at the new risks and contrasts them with the top 10 risks for web applications. While security products can help to mitigate certain risks as an additional defense line, API developers have the ultimate responsibility for their code and must know the risks to avoid them. This will be an online live event (link will be added before the event). Speaker bio of Dr. Martin Burkhart: Martin Burkhart is head of product management for Airlock at Ergon Informatik AG. Prior to that, he has been working as a software engineer and as a security researcher, concerned with data anonymization and applied cryptography. He owns an MSc and a PhD in computer science from ETH Zurich.
