Title: AppSec Training, Securing the SDLC, WebGoat.NET and the Meaning of Life
One of the most vital pieces of a secure SDLC is security training – not only for developers, but for Architects, QA and anyone else involved in the creation of software. Too frequently, this is minimized, overlooked or completely absent within an organization. In some cases, the very idea of application security is dismissed as unnecessary.
This talk starts by making a strong argument for developer education, and how it fits into any organization’s SDLC. Training will be put into the context of NIST’s “Security considerations in System Development Life Cycle” Document, Microsoft’s Simplified SDL, BSIMM3 and OWASP Open SAMM.
From there, we discuss other OWASP resources and projects dedicated to developer education, and an in-depth discussion of OWASP WebGoat.NET – an ASP.NET specific re-design of OWASP which meets the needs and addresses the challenges of modern application security training programs.
Lecture will be delivered by Jerry Hoff, VP of Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security. Jerry is the leader of the OWASP Appsec Tutorial Series, WebGoat.NET and AntiSamy.NET. Jerry is a former developer, author, and has over 10,000 hours delivering technical training. Jerry holds a Masters degree in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis.
