Understanding the Implications of Cloud Computing on Application Security” (11/12, 10:30-11:30)

Understanding the Implications of Cloud Computing on Application Security Cloud Computing paradigms spell fundamental changes for where your applications run, the platforms on which they run, who controls these platforms and the boundaries corporate data  crosses. The speaker will address the distinct security challenges posed by each of the three Cloud Computing models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), where hosted servers, software and network equipment are deployed in the cloud; Platforms as a Service (PaaS), where the organization develops its own applications, but does so within the provider’s framework or specified platform; and Software as a Service (SaaS), where the organization trusts its  application to both the provider’s hardware and software.  What steps should you take in each case to protect your data?  Companies that choose not to use the Cloud model at all run a different risk--  rogue departments doing it anyway.  What is a logical, predictable, and mature approach to adopting Cloud Computing?

 “SDLC Industry Panel” (11/12, 2:30pm - 4:30pm)

A  panel discussion on the growth of secure SDLCs/Application Development Program/Application Life Cycles, where you can share the facets that have made your organization's efforts successful and unique, what you feel others should know so that they can improve their programs, and to talk about the future of the application security space with regards to life cycle processes.
OWASP envisions having each participant give a (very) brief introductory talk, where they discuss the highlights of their program and what has set their program apart. This will be followed by a moderated Q&A discussing overcoming hurdles in implementing an SDLC and what the next steps are in the evolution of Secure SDLCs, which will then opened to general questions from the audience.

Web 2.0 -love it or hate it, thetechnology driving the highly interactive web experience is in your browser andcoming to your enterprise. Securing Web 2.0 requires extraordinary means due tothe increased attack surface, new breed of "Web 2.0 developers" and increasedvisibility of sites and applications. Understanding the risks associated withWeb 2.0 and beyond is essential to building "less risky" web applications intothe next phase of the web. This talk focuses on how 2 prevalent technologies;AJAXandAdobe Flash!, create the potential forcatastrophic failure. Focus is given to understandingeach technology's attack surface, most common security failures, andexploitation of common coding mistakes. This workshop-style walk-through of theWeb 2.0's ugly underbelly will give participants a deeper understanding of whysecurity professionals are terrified of "highly interactive web technologies"and why we say that "everything old is new again."
