Event: Virtual Meeting: Practical DevSecOps

Chapter: Orange County

Time: 17:45 (US/Pacific)


Speaker: Jeff Williams, Co-Founder and CTO at Contrast

Topic: Practical DevSecOps

The traditional “outside in” scanning, pentesting, and firewalling approach slows down delivery pipelines and creates massive security backlog. We need a new approach to security that accelerates the delivery of value to customers. In this talk, Jeff will present a proven approach to both shifting left into development *and* extending right into operations. We’ll discuss the “three ways” of security and talk about the elements of a healthy appsec lifestyle. We’ll discuss a practical way to break down the threat model and get the most important security work flowing effectively, how to establish tight security feedback loops and communication channels, and how to create a culture of security experimentation and learning.

Speaker Bio:
Jeff brings more than 20 years of security leadership experience as co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Contrast Security. He recently authored the DZone DevSecOps, IAST, and RASP refcards and speaks frequently at conferences including JavaOne (Java Rockstar), BlackHat, QCon, RSA, OWASP, Velocity, and PivotalOne. Jeff is also a founder and major contributor to OWASP, where he served as Global Chairman for 9 years, and created the OWASP Top 10, OWASP Enterprise Security API, OWASP Application Security Verification Standard, XSS Prevention Cheat Sheet, and many more popular open source projects. Jeff has a BA from Virginia, an MA from George Mason, and a JD from Georgetown.

Event: Live Hacking an API with InsiderPhD/Katie

Chapter: Santa Barbara

Time: 18:00 (US/Pacific)


NOTE: You need to RSVP in order to get the link the day of the event.

After a little break we're resuming our ~monthly OWASP Santa Barbara events and as usual we're keeping these rather technical. In this case we'll have Katie Paxton-Fear (@InsiderPhD) giving a live and interactive presentation on API hacking.

### Event Agenda (PST timezone) ###
06.00 pm -- Event Kickoff & Announcements, by Walter Martín Villalba, OWASP SB Leader / https://twitter.com/act1vand0
06.15 pm -- Presentation: Live Hacking an API, by Katie Paxton-Fear / https://twitter.com/InsiderPhD
07.15 pm -- Closing Remarks


APIs are everywhere, especially with the rise of mobile and IOT devices and they are my FAVOURITE things to hack. Why? Because they are full of security flaws! From your online banking to your IOT fridge and your government agency, are full of actually quite simple bugs. Now I'm a Bug Bounty hunter, I love a good- er bad API, with impactful bugs.

In this demo I'll take you through how to hack an API and show you real security flaws in organisations, some of which I've found personally, in products you've heard of! We'll cover IDORs/BOLAs, information disclosure, account takeovers, injection + more! Showing how even the simplest of software issues, a missing if statement, can snowball into a major security breach. This is an interactive session and I'll be asking the audience to help give me ideas on how to approach the API!

-- Stream: TBD.
-- Chat: #chapter-santa-barbara channel on https://owasp.slack.com/. If you don't have an account, create one at https://owasp-slack.herokuapp.com/.

Martín & the OWASP SB Team.

PS: if you've been enjoying our frequent events since the relaunch in late 2018, please take a minute to rate our group on meetup.com.

Event: Exploring OWASP ZAP

Chapter: Somerset

Time: 19:00 (US/Eastern)


If you are not familiar with the OWASP ZAP project this is a great chance to get an introduction to a powerful, free web app scanner. If you are familiar please join and help answer any questions that attendees may have or just enjoy the opportunity to participate in the OWASP Somerset community!

We will look at using the ZAP scanner to find vulnerabilities in web apps. This is the first part of a series on app scanning that will go from the basics to when, how, and why you may want to work with engineering teams to automate security tooling in the DevSecOps pipeline.

Event: Chapter Croatia Virtual Meetup - DefectDojo & Semgrep

Chapter: Croatia

Time: 18:00 (Europe/Zagreb)


18:00 - 18:15 - Chapter Croatia Public Service Announcements
18:15 - 19:00-> Dubravko Sever - DefectDojo, vidljivost ranjivosti na jednom mjestu
19:15 - 20:00 -> Grayson Hardaway- Enforcing Code & Security Standards with Semgrep
20:00 -> Virtual drinks and chitchat


Dubravko Sever - DefectDojo, vidljivost ranjivosti na jednom mjestu
Razvoj sigurnih aplikacija oduvijek je bio izazov, posebice pri agilnom pristupu. Teško je pratiti da li nove komponente i ovisnosti otvaraju nove prilike malicioznim osobama. Stoga kontinuirano automatizirano skeniranje koda i integracije aplikacije je nešto bez čega aplikacija ne može u produkciju. Skeniranje se vrši s više međusobno nepovezanih alata. Međutim tu je DefectDojo da olakša život i integrira Vulnerability Management u razvoj aplikacija i životni ciklus.

Dubravko Sever: Nakon dugog niza godina u Sveučilišnom računskom centru SRCE, danas zaposlen kao sigurnjak u Deutsche Telekom, Pan-net, gdje se bavi sigurnošću Clouda (in/of) kao i sigurnošću orkestrirane okoline mikroservisa.

Grayson Hardaway: Enforcing Code & Security Standards with Semgrep
We’ll discuss a program analysis tool we’re developing called Semgrep. It's a multilingual semantic tool for writing security and correctness queries on source code (for Python, Java, Go, C, and JS) with a simple “grep-like” interface. The original author, Yoann Padioleau, worked on Semgrep’s predecessor, Coccinelle, for Linux kernel refactoring, and later developed Semgrep while at Facebook. He’s now full time with us at r2c.

Semgrep is a free open-source program analysis toolkit that finds bugs using custom analysis we’ve written and OSS code checks. Semgrep is ideal for security researchers, product security engineers, and developers who want to find complex code patterns without extensive knowledge of ASTs or advanced program analysis concepts.

For example, find subprocess calls with shell=True in Python using the query:
subprocess.open(..., shell=True)
This will even find snippets like:
import subprocess as s
s.open(f'rm {args}', shell=True)

Or find hardcoded credentials using the query:
boto3.client(..., aws_secret_access_key=”...”, aws_access_key_id=”...” )

Source code: https://github.com/returntocorp/semgrep
Test in your browser: https://semgrep.live/

Grayson Hardaway is a security researcher at r2c, a startup working on static analysis tools purpose-built for the modern workflow. At r2c, Grayson authors static analysis tailored for finding security vulnerabilities in open source code. Previously, Grayson worked for the US Department of Defense fuzzing and exploiting obscure protocols. When not submitting patches, Grayson is hefting a heavy pack uphill, crafting guitar solos, or learning something new: currently woodworking.

Event: Requerimientos de seguridad y cómo probarlos [OWASP (A/MA)SVS y (W/M)STG ]

Chapter: Uruguay

Time: 19:00 (America/Montevideo)


En esta Meetup virtual les contaremos sobre dos proyectos de OWASP que nos permitirán definir niveles de seguridad para nuestras aplicaciones, así como requerimientos a cumplir, tareas a realizar durante el desarrollo de una aplicación y como podemos probar el cumplimiento de dichos requerimientos.

OWASP ASVS / MASVS: el Estándar de Verificación de Seguridad de Aplicaciones y el Estándar de Verificación de Seguridad de Aplicaciones Móviles (MASVS) de OWASP son, como su nombre lo indica, estándares para la seguridad de aplicaciones web y móviles, respectivamente.

Pueden ser utilizado por arquitectos, desarrolladores y testers de software que buscan desarrollar aplicaciones seguras, pero también puede ser utilizado por los expertos en seguridad para comprobar el nivel de seguridad, para garantizar la integridad y la coherencia de los resultados de las pruebas, dependiendo de si participaron en el proceso de desarrollo. Además, puede ser utilizado por una empresa para establecer un nivel de seguridad y las tareas a realizar por la empresa que le desarrolla sus aplicaciones.

OWASP WSTG / MSTG: la Guía de Pruebas de Seguridad Web (WSTG) y la Guía de Pruebas de Seguridad Móvil (MSTG) de OWASP son manuales completos de pruebas de seguridad en aplicaciones web y móviles. Estos proyectos proporcionan a los desarrolladores, testers y expertos en seguridad casos de prueba detallados para el análisis tanto estático como dinámico, algunas herramientas recomendadas y podría ayudarnos a realizar ingeniería inversa y a manipular una aplicación móvil.

Les contaremos cómo utilizar ambos proyectos para mejorar la seguridad en sus proyectos web y móviles.

November 06, 2020

Event: OWASP Meetup - CTF

Chapter: Saint Louis

Time: 19:00 (US/Central)


Capture the Flag (CTF) is a computer security competition. CTF contests are usually designed to serve as an educational exercise to give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world. Reverse-engineering, network sniffing, protocol analysis, system administration, programming, and cryptanalysis.

* This will be an open CTF which means this is open book. You may use any tool or internet accessible resource: Burpsuite, IDE, Metasploit, etc.

* Work in single or 2 person teams

* Be the person/team with the most challenges completed to win (time will determine a tie)
