July 24, 2019 (6:15PM-7:45PM) - A Practical Approach to Secure Code Reviews
Presenter: Seth Law
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Topics: Let’s face it, performing a manual review of someone else’s source code is hard. It takes time, effort, expertise, and grit to actually figure out what the application does, how the developer implemented it, and if there should be any changes. From an application security perspective, this becomes even more difficult because of the security nuances of multiple languages that must be understood in order to identify and squash vulnerabilities. On top of that, most security reviews must be performed within a limited amount of time against more lines of code than recommended in standard code review best practices.
After performing secure code reviews for over a decade, it becomes easier to identify a pattern and framework to address security concerns within code quickly and efficiently. This talk will introduce the Absolute AppSec Secure Code Review Framework to attendees and discuss lessons learned, code review tips and tricks, and strategies for quickly assessing code that can be used by reviewers immediately.
About the Speaker:
Seth Law is an experienced Application Security Professional with over 15 years of experience in the computer security industry. During this time, Seth has worked within multiple disciplines in the security field, from software development to network protection, both as a manager and individual contributor.

March 06, 2018 (6:30PM-7:45PM) - 10 Mistakes Security Engineers Make
Presenter: Damilare D. Fagbemi, Security Architect at Intel Corporation
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Topic: Let’s face it, product security isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Product security increasingly occurs by the minute as software houses build infrastructure to allow the provision of hourly software updates. Software isn’t just everywhere, the manner in which it’s designed is also a moving target. Considering all that churn, it’s unsurprising that information security related roles are one of the hottest items on the job market.But those jobs stay hot, because we just don’t have enough people with the necessary skills. This results in a dependence on relatively few security experts in most organizations – and those experts often need to scale to a large number of product teams.
How can security engineers succeed and scale effectively? To answer that question, we peeled back the different layers of the product security engineering role. We explored how the security engineer approaches projects, interacts with teams, trains developers, communicates with management, assesses business risk and tackles other problems. Post analysis, we arrived at a set tips which we’re calling the Don’ts (and Dos) of the trade.
About the Speakers:
Damilare D. Fagbemi is a Security Architect at Intel Corporation, where he has the pleasure of working with talented software teams to drive and improve product security in mobile, web, and IoT solutions. He is also a Chapter leader at the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) in Nigeria, and a former Co-founder of verdeinfotech.com, a web development consultancy. He enjoys writing and blogs at edgeofus.com. When he’s not stuck in a computer, he can be found exploring nature and trying to stay active without a fitness tracker.

This calendar will be updated as meetings are announced. July 12, 2017 (6:30PM-7:45PM) - Weaponizing Machine Learning: Humanity Was Overrated Anyway
Presenter: Dan Petro & Ben Morris
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Topic: At risk of appearing like mad scientists, reveling in our latest unholy creation, we proudly introduce you to DeepHack: the open-source hacking AI. This bot learns how to break into web applications using a neural network, trial-and-error, and a frightening disregard for humankind.
DeepHack can ruin your day without any prior knowledge of apps, databases… or really anything else. Using just one algorithm, it learns how to exploit multiple kinds of vulnerabilities, opening the door for a host of hacking artificial intelligence systems in the future.
This is only the beginning of the end, though. AI-based hacking tools are emerging as a class of technology that pentesters have yet to fully explore. We guarantee that you’ll be either writing machine learning hacking tools next year, or desperately attempting to defend against them.
No longer relegated just to the domain of evil geniuses, the inevitable AI dystopia is accessible to you today! So join us and we’ll demonstrate how you too can help usher in the destruction of humanity by building weaponized machine learning systems of your own… unless time travelers from the future don’t stop us first.

June 22, 2017 (6:30PM-7:45PM) - Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto: Security-Testing in the Real World
Presenter: Seth Law
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Topic: Security testing is difficult, no matter who is doing it or how it is performed. Both the security and development industries still struggle to find reliable solutions to identify vulnerabilities in custom code, but sometimes make things harder than they should be.
This talk will address the current limitations of security unit-testing applications with existing tools and various frameworks. It will introduce a generic framework for creating simple security unit-tests for any application. We will also cover review common strategies for building application security-specific unit-tests, including function identification, testing approaches, edge cases, regression testing, and payload generation. These techniques will be demonstrated in Java Spring and .Net MVC frameworks using intentionally-vulnerable applications and cover unit-testing, Test Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration (CI) in security framework.

Feb 17, 2016 (6:30PM-8:00PM): Jim Manico
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 The Beatles once sang, “I’ve got to admit it’s getting better, a little better all the time, because it can’t get more worse” and that applies directly to the field application security. The successes in building security into common application development frameworks is remarkable and has, in some ways, made secure coding less of an effort to the developer. While much needs to be done in this area, there are many very positive examples of security characteristics built correctly into frameworks. This talk with bring the positive vibe to OWASP Phoenix and highlight that things really are getting better in AppSec - all time - if you look in the right places.”

July 07, 2016: Dan “AltF4” Petro
Location: Early Warning Title: Reversing Video Games to Create an Unbeatable AI Player - Game over, man!
Abstract: “Super Smash Bros: Melee.” - Furrowed brows, pain in your thumbs, trash talk your Mom would blush to hear. That sweet rush of power you once knew as you beat all the kids on your block will be but a distant memory as SmashBot challenges you to a duel for your pride — live on stage. SmashBot is the Artificial Intelligence I created that plays the cult classic video game Smash Bros optimally. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, remorse, or fear. This Raspberry Pi monster won’t stop until all your lives are gone. What started as a fun coding project in response to a simple dare grew into an obsession that encompassed the wombo-combo of hacking disciplines including binary reverse engineering, AI research, and programming. When not used to create a killer doomsday machine, these same skills translate to hacking Internet of Things (IoT) devices, developing shellcode, and more. Forget about Internet ending zero-day releases and new exploit kits. Come on down and get wrecked at a beloved old video game. Line up and take your turn trying to beat the AI yourself, live on the projectors for everyone to see. When you lose though, don’t run home and go crying to yo Momma.

Wed, Oct 05, 2016 (6:30PM-8:00PM): Raymond Tu
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Title: Everyone hates Robocalls: Why is it so hard to stop? Speaker: Raymond Tu
Abstract: Today, the telephone network is rife with telephone spam, namely voice, voicemail, and SMS spam. Spam calls are significant annoyances for telephone users, unlike email spam, which can be ignored, spam calls demand immediate attention. Telephone spam is not only a significant annoyance, it also result in significant financial loss in the economy. According to complaint data collected by the FTC, Americans lost more than $8.6 billion due to fraud annually, and the vast majority of them (and still increasing) are due to phone communication. Despite various efforts that reduce telephone spam, scam and robocalls, complaints on illegal calls have been making record numbers in recent years. This situation is surprising, given the significant gains made in reducing the amount of email spam. This raises the question: are there any simple and effective solutions that could stop telephone spam? In this talk, we will cover the existing countermeasures and analyze why these countermeasures have so far failed at reducing the growth of telephone spam, followed by a discussion on what he believes to be the future direction of solving the telephone spam problem.
Bio: Raymond Tu is a PhD Student in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University, where he is advised by Dr. Adam Doupé. He was awarded a graduate fellowship award from Arizona State University and has recently published a paper at the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (Oakland). His main research focus is in spam and scams in the telephony networks, and the goal is to develop simple, effective and deployable solutions in combating telephone spam, similar to what has been achieved in defenses against email spam.

Wed, Nov 30, 2016 (6:30PM-8:00PM): Jack Mannino
Location: Early Warning 16552 N 90th St Ste 100 Scottsdale, AZ 85260 https://goo.gl/maps/R8X2RdD2zr22 Title: Microservices Security - Challenges and Solutions Speaker: Jack Mannino
Abstract: Microservices offer a lot of benefits for deploying large-scale applications, but implementing a secure architecture that scales over time can be challenging. Services are highly decoupled from each other as well as producers and consumers of data moving throughout the architecture. Data contracts between services are often blurry, and data sharing between microservices require careful consideration around access patterns and boundaries between related services. New services come, new services go. Some are deployed to containers, some to servers, and some are serverless. Your developers, data scientists, and infrastructure team are all empowered to move quickly and ship new services. Your job is to make sure all of the above happens in a secure and sane way.
In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges with securing microservices and present solutions to make security a seamless and frictionless part of scaling your architecture. Using real-world examples of successes and failures while building a microservice architecture, we will discuss what translates well from monolithic design to microservices, and the bad habits you should leave behind. We will demonstrate how to build authentication into a microservice architecture and how to implement a granular authorization scheme that will work effectively as you introduce new services. At the end of this presentation, you’ll understand what separates microservices from traditional monolithic applications and understand the problem space from a secure architectural perspective.
Bio: Jack is the CEO at nVisium and focuses on building solutions to make security and education scale in fast-paced software development organizations. He has worked with large software development teams to guide secure software from conceptualization to production.

Tuesday, July 07 Title: Hacking Smart Safes: On the “Brink” of a Robbery Presenter(s): Dan “AltF4” Petro, Oscar Salazar Have you ever wanted to crack open a safe full of cash with nothing but a USB stick? Now you can! The Brink’s CompuSafe cash management product line provides a “smart safe as a service” solution to major retailers and fast food franchises. They offer end-to-end management of your cash, transporting it safely from your storefront safe to your bank via armored car. During this talk, we’ll uncover a major flaw in the Brink’s CompuSafe and demonstrate how to crack one open in seconds flat. All you need is a USB stick and a large bag to hold all of the cash. We’ll discuss how to remotely takeover the safe with full administrator privileges, and show how to enumerate a target list of other major Brink’s CompuSafe customers (exposed via configuration files stored right on the safe). At any given time, up to $240,000 can be sitting in each of the 14,000 Brink’s CompuSafe smart safes currently deployed across the United States - potentially billions of dollars just waiting to be stolen. We will also release a USB Rubber Ducky script to automate the whole attack, acting as a skeleton key that can open any Brink’s safe. Plug and plunder! So come ready to engage us as we explore these tools and more in this DEMO rich presentation. And don’t forget to call Kenny Loggins… because this presentation is your highway to the Danger Zone…

June 09, 2015 Title: If you like it then you shouldn’t put a ring3 on it Presenter: Andrew Wilson Web applications are a primary means to breaching a company’s external network. It is a high-value goal for both malicious actors and security professionals to gain this valuable foothold. But how do you get from mere web application vulnerabilities to the compromise of a server? Common testing guidelines provide you a check list of items to test for, but very few show you how to utilize vulnerabilities to achieve testing goals.
Everyone knows that vulnerabilities have different levels of risk; But, what few talk about is the utility provided by vulnerabilities and how they can be used to achieve goals. Although some vulnerabilities are useful to note and impactful to a client, during a time gaped and scoped engagement they may not be able to be fully utilized. However, there are a handful of key direct vulnerabilities that can be leveraged to result in a compromise. These vulnerabilities, along with how to find them and how to leverage them for our needs, will be reviewed during this talk. Additionally, common attack strategies will be reviewed that can help a focus time and energies to maximize efforts in web server compromises.

Title: Top Ten Web Defenses We cannot “firewall” or “patch” our way to secure websites. In the past, security professionals thought firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), patching, and privacy policies were enough. Today, however, these methods are outdated and ineffective, as attacks on prominent, well-protected websites are occurring every day. Most every organization in the world have something in common – they have had websites compromised in some way. No company or industry is immune. Programmers need to learn to build websites differently. This talk will review the top coding techniques developers need to master in order to build a low-risk, high-security web application.

OWASP O2 Platform Dinis Cruz
The O2 Platform is focused on automating application security knowledge and workflows. It is specifically designed for developers and security consultants to be able to perform quick, effective and thorough source code-driven application security reviews (blackbox + whitebox). In addition to the manual findings created/discovered by security consultants, the OWASP O2 Platform allows the easy consumption of results from multiple OWASP projects and commercial scanning tools. This allows security consultants to find, exploit and automate (via Unit Tests) security vulnerabilities usually dismissed by the community as impossible to find/recreate. More importantly, it provides security consultants a mechanism to: (a) “talk” with developers (via UnitTest), (b) give developers a way to replicate + “check if it’s fixed” the vulnerabilities reported and (c) engage in a two-way conversion on the best way to fix/remediate those vulnerabilities.

SharePoint Hacking - Advanced SharePoint Security Tools and Tips -Francis Brown
Microsoft SharePoint products and technologies continue to grow in popularity and have become the core foundation upon which many organizations have built their web presence. Unfortunately, guidance concerning common SharePoint security issues tends to be overly complex and often misunderstood. Ultimately this results in insecurely configured and deployed SharePoint instances in production environments.
This demonstration rich presentation will cover our newly released SharePoint hacking tools and techniques that security professionals can easily use to identify and exploit common insecure configurations in SharePoint applications. Some of the areas we’ll attempt to tackle are: • Identifying vulnerable SharePoint applications using public search engines such as Google and Bing • Gaining unauthorized access to SharePoint administrative web interfaces • Exploiting holes in SharePoint site user permissions and inheritance • Illustrating the dangers of granting excessive access to normal user accounts • Pillaging Active Directory via insecure SharePoint services • Attacking 3rd party plugins/code within SharePoint • And much more…
**Appsec Design Reviews Reloaded - Andre Gironda **The best place to start in the software lifecycle is during the design phase. Workflow tools exist for SDL processes, build servers, penetration-testing activities, and many other application security checkpoints. However, very few tools and techniques exist or are readily available when performing application security design reviews. The full process of application security should be agreed upon during the design phase by the security department and all relevant application development teams. The direction of the projects and the patterns used in the application architectures can also be augmented from an application security perspective. This presentation will provide discussion around how to solve many of these and other challenges in application security. The focus will be on web applications that use common technologies, such as managed code frameworks. Bio: Andre has contributed to many OWASP documents and has been working in the appsec space for almost 5 years. He is a local to the Phoenix area and has presented on application security topics recently at BSides, OWASP, and Toorcon events.

Involuntary Case Studies in Data Breaches, Rich Mogull, Securosis
It’s absolutely bass ackwards, but while the bad guys constantly share details of their exploits, including techniques, when it comes to real incidents, actual defenders rarely talk about what worked, and what didn’t. Our entire industry is built on anecdote and the few tidbits we can glean from press reports. Thus we, as an industry, don’t link means and methods to actual security outcomes. Without this information we’re like a bunch of blindfolded wannabe ninjas trying to catch rounds from a machine gun with our bare hands. In this session we’ll name names as we build in-depth case studies based on publicly available information, some of which isn’t overly public. We will combine these with the latest information from breach reports released by incident response companies and the Dataloss Database. The session will build a picture of how real breaches happen, which security controls really work, and which compliance checkboxes are a complete and total waste of time.
