Dan Cornell Presenting at OWASP Houston: Conducting Application Assessments

TOPIC: "Conducting Application Assessments"

SPEAKER(S): Dan Cornell, OWASP, Denim Group

ABSTRACT: This talk will review a number of application assessment techniques and discuss the types of security vulnerabilities they are best suited to identify as well as how the different approaches can be used in combination to produce more thorough and insightful results. Code review will be compared to penetration testing and the capabilities of automated tools will be compared to manual techniques. In addition, the role of threat modeling and architecture analysis will be examined. The goal is to illuminate assessment techniques that go beyond commodity point-and-click approaches to web application or code scanning.
