OWASP Qatar Chapter Meeting June 2013: Secure Sessions
Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (AST)
OWASP Qatar Chapter is pleased to announce its second meeting of this year on Thursday, 27th June at ictQATAR Building, Al-Nasr Tower- B, Mezzanine Floor.
In web application security, what is worse than insecure sessions? The lack of session management and securing web sessions could dramatically impact the security of any website.
In the upcoming meeting, Session Management threats, SSL/TLS Certificates, Credential management, and other aspects will be presented by our distinguished speakers. Most common vulnerabilities in securing sessions that are seen in the wild will be highlighted as well with tips and recommendations to avoid them in your web servers. Whether you are a web developer in profession, or an individual owning your own web server, you don’t want to miss the opportunity on how to secure your web server from session management threats.
Moreover, we will discuss the new OWASP Top 10 (2013) release. Is there any dramatic change than 2010? You will get the chance to figure that out.
We’re looking forward to greeting new and active members at June 2013’s OWASP meeting, and we anticipate the lively discussions that will result in improving the security of application software in Qatar.
