    OWASP Timisoara #17: 03 December 2020

    More about the speakers and topics

    Per Olsson(repolsson), Application Security Engineer at Visma Per has a background as a developer focusing on the security aspects of software development, he has an unhealthy obsession with passwords and understanding the human behind the hoodie.

    Hackers and the hacker mindset Abstract: Per will talk about what hacking actually is, how a hacker thinks compared to for example a developer and about a few different types of hackers.

    Tom Hudson (TomNomNom), Security Research Tech Lead at Detectify Tom is from Bradford in the UK and he is a Open-source tool maker, trainer, talker, fixer, eater, not really a sheep.

    The Unsearchables - Finding Things That Google Doesn’t Abstract: Google does a fine job of indexing the web for most purposes, but we often want to find things that “regular” people aren’t so interested in. Let’s take a look at some places you can look, and some techniques you can use to find things that Google doesn’t index. We’ll look at digging into git repository histories, Docker images, and a few other things to find secrets and other useful information.

    Winter sessions - Theme: Honeypots, Hacking and Community Building

  • Honeypots: The internet is getting bigger and bigger and the attacks on organisations, governments, individuals etc are increasing. It's not a matter of if you're going to be a target, but when. At some point in time, attackers will find a way to enter a company's network, some way or another. They usually do it by trying multiple times, after conducting reconnaissance activity. Knowing who accesses the company assets, creating decoys to lure attackers and gain time to implement defense strategies could be a deal breaker. Learn more about what honeypots are, how they can be used and what value they can provide to a company.
  • Hacking: Nowadays we can see an increase in cyber-crime or state controlled attacks and companies are starting to become more aware for the need of people with a hacking culture. In Learning path, how to become a hacker you will find a few steps on how you can be a good guy into security and help organizations secure their environments.
  • Security Community Building: The founder and the coordinator of CoderDojo will present the learning steps into security, how can we get more insights if we participate into CTFs and how we can build a stronger security community.

    12th April 2016, OWASP InfoSecTM #11

    Title: Be aware of your bugs, if you aren’t, someone else is The first session will introduce key concepts necessary in understanding what is going on “under the hood” of your program and how this correlates with being a possible victim of an exploit.

    We will also dissect a real life exploit to see how this is done “in the wild” and what can we do to prevent it.
