TOP 3 talks @ Confidence – Poland

April 28th, 2009

Following the spirit of the previous post regarding the interesting talks at OWASP Poland, here is the list of talks I find interesting at CONFidence:

  • Social engineering for penetration testers, by Sharon Conheady. I always enjoy the social engineering talks. It’s like learning Jedi mind control tricks!
  • Public transport SMS ticket hacking, by Pavol Luptak. Hardware hacking is something I won’t be able to in my life, and that is why I find it so interesting.
  • VAASeline: VNC Attack Automation Suite, by Rich Smith. Are they really so many VNC servers out there? Was it really necessary to build VAASeline? I want my answers, so I’ll be there :)

The whole conference line-up sounds interesting, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it a lot. See you there!

TOP 5 talks @ OWASP Poland

April 27th, 2009

I’ll be attending the OWASP conference in Poland next month, and I’ve already put together my TOP 5 list of talks:

  • The Truth about Web Application Firewalls: What the vendors do not want you to know by Wendel Guglielmetti Henrique, Trustwave & Sandro Gauci, EnableSecurity. I’ve been doing some WAF research of my own, and I would like to hear what these guys have to say about WAF’s. I would like to know if Ivan Ristic is going to be there also… ;)
  • Advanced SQL injection exploitation to operating system full control by Bernardo Damele the creator of sqlmap. I know he’s been doing some excellent research on getting OS control from SQL injections, and I want to hear all about that.
  • When Security Isn’t Free: The Myth of Open Source Security by Rob Rachwald, Fortify. This seems to be “one of those talks” where the speaker is so tainted that you won’t believe one word… but… I want to hear what he is going to say.
  • Exploiting Web 2.0 – Next Generation Vulnerabilities by Shreeraj Shah, Blueinfy. It’s always nice to hear the latest XSS stuff ;)
  • I thought you were my friend Evil Markup, browser issues and other obscurities by Mario Heiderich, Business-IN. I’ll attend this talk mostly to meet Mario and hear what he has to say about evil markup (?).

Between talks, I’ll be idling around and giving some w3af T-Shirts away, so pay attention!
