I recently had the privilege of attending and speaking at the OWASP AppSec USA 2018 conference in San Jose, California, one of OWASP'S global events. This was the first time I had attended a OWASP global event despite having attended chapter meet-ups and regional conferences so I wanted to take this opportunity to pull out some of my highlights.
I recently used the very excellent OWASP Juice Shop application developed by the very excellent Björn Kimminich to run an internal Capture the Flag event (CTF) for my department. It went really well and got really good feedback so I thought I would jot down some practical notes on how I did it.
Some *completely unofficial* answers to questions about OWASP and the AppSecEU 2018 debacle based purely on publicly available information.
Whilst most people were preparing for the festive season, in a shock move OWASP decided to suddenly claw back its flagship conference from the hugely successful OWASP Israel chapter and hold it in the UK (again) instead.
For various reasons, this year was the first year I made it to OWASP AppSec Israel, the national Application Security conference here in Israel. Not only that but I was honoured to be accepted to present as well. It was a long day including a speakers/organisers dinner in the evening but as well as being tired I was also really buzzing with excitement and I thought I’d jot down a few notes about the day.
If you care about AppSec, you have until 30th August to have your say on what new items should be in RC2 and until 18th September to provide additional data on vulnerabilities found.
Having made my long term thoughts on the OWASP Top 10 process clear, I want to talk about the list as it stands at the moment and how I think it should be for 2017.
