OWASP Netherlands Chapter Meeting
November 14th, 2011
Delftse Poort, Rotterdam
David Rook is the Application Security Lead at Realex Payments in Dublin. He is a contributor to several OWASP projects including the code review guide and the Cryptographic Storage Cheat Sheet. He has presented at leading information security conferences including DEF CON, BlackHat USA and RSA Europe. In addition to his work with OWASP David created a security resource website and blog called Security Ninja (http://www.securityninja.co.uk).
In 2010 the Security Ninja blog was nominated for five awards including the best technology blog at the Irish Blog Awards, the Computer Weekly IT Security blog award and was a finalist for the Irish Web Awards Best Technology Site. In 2011 David received a Developer Security MVP award from Microsoft. David has recently become one of the first mentors in the Information Security Mentors project helping young people progress their information security careers.
Agnitio: the security code review Swiss army knife
Teaching developers to write secure code, helping security professionals find security flaws in source code, producing application security metrics and reports with integrity checks and audit trails. If you want to implement an SDLC that produces secure software with the audit trails and reports frequently demanded by auditors and management you need to acknowledge that these are key constituents and implement them in a form that is both easy to understand and use.
This is far easier to talk about than it is to implement in the real world where well structured SDLC’s are rare and application security programmes are usually under funded. Working with developers, security professionals and management to cultivate an environment where secure code is written and flaws found consistently requires both time and money. The same can be said for producing informative reports and metrics when all of your security code review data resides in notepad, Word and Excel files. With these problems in mind I developed Agnitio to be my security code review Swiss army knife and released it as a free tool in late 2010.
In this demonstration filled talk I will show how Agnitio can be used to addresses repeatability, integrity and audit trail concerns by requiring the creation of application profiles, the use of a security code review checklist consisting of over 80 application security questions and mandatory integrity checks for reviews and reports created using the tool. I will demonstrate how the inbuilt secure coding and security code review guidance modules allow developers and security professionals to access the information they need precisely when they need it. I will also show how Agnitio automatically creates metrics and reports bringing much needed visibility to the security code review process with no extra effort required from the reviewer, developers or management.
Agnitio v2.1 will be demonstrated during this talk which will show how Agnitio’s already powerful feature set has been expanded to guidance and questions linked to the OWASP top 10 mobile risks as well as the ability to decompile and analyse Android applications.
Alex Thissen is a principal architect at Achmea and concentrates on integration-architecture and security. You can meet hem at various conferences and seminars where he will share his experiences from the field. He likes just about everything related to Microsoft products and technologies, but tries to focus on building secure web-applications in distributed enterprise environments.
Implementing SDLC and lessons learned Paying attention to security during application development is a must. Yet, often we find that security didn’t get the attention it should have had. One of the ways to force yourself to “think and act security” is to embed security in your development process. The Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is a platform-agnostic approach for applying security during the various stages of your development process. In this session you will get an overview of the Microsoft SDL and how it fits in “traditional” and agile projects. But, with just an approach you are not done. This session will also show the hurdles that Achmea encountered during the implementation of an SDL, and what should be done to make an SDL successful. You will get to see the lesson learned from the Microsoft Competence Centre at Achmea IT.
