The Talk:

1) How OWASP Works and Guided Tour of OWASP Projects - This presentation will focus on Dinis's experience in getting things done at OWASP, what resources are available, and what types of initiatives local chapters should be doing. In addition to a quick overview of a number of key OWASP projects, this talk will also provide a tutorial on how the OWASP WIKI (MediaWiki based) can be used as a database (using the MediaWiki templates technology).

2) Using the O2 Platform to Consume OWASP Projects - This presentation will focus on how to consume the OWASP Wiki and a number of OWASP projects using the OWASP O2 Platform. The O2 Platform has powerful technology and capabilities for both blackbox and whitebox analysis and this presentation will provide examples on how to use O2 with WebGoat, WebScarab, Code Crawler, DirBusterTesting Guide, Code Review Guide, and OpenSAMM.

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.

OWASP - MSP Chapter

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. We advocate approaching application security as a people, process, and technology problem because the most effective approaches to application security include improvements in all of these areas.
