March Meetup

Slide Deck

This month we covered a simple intro into Threat Modeling. And we conducted this meetup remotely due to the COVID-19 situation.

February 2020

February Meetup

Slide Deck

This month we discussed how a tool like BeEF can reveal the true potential of what Cross Site Scripting (XSS) can lead to. BeEF can be used to leverage the exploitability of the browser to send payloads to unsuspecting victims. Being aware of these attacks and how they work can help developers better prepare and defend against them.

Slide Deck

BSides SF is fast approaching! Who’s going?

This month we talked about a number of modern web security patterns. Like how to add Subresource Integrity (SRI) checking to your external resources. Ways you can enable Content Security Policies (CSP) and reporting on CSPs. What to expect from Expect Certificate Transparency (Expect-CT) and Certificate Authorization Authorities (CAAs). Then we wrapped it up with how to set up a security.txt on your site with the securitytxt proposal. There’s also a generator found at https://securitytxt.org

Kick off Meetup

Come join us for the inaugural event of the Sacramento OWASP Chapter. We have so much AppSec, NetSec, and InfoSec talent in the Sacramento area that it’s time we form a community for us to share our thoughts, experiences, and best practices.

The Sacramento OWASP chapter has been dormant for a while and it’s time to give it a jump start. This will be our first official meeting. Come by, say hello, put a face to a name, and maybe let us know what you’re interested in learning or even contributing!

Please RSVP by October 15th so we can accommodate seating, snacks, and drinks.
