Topic: Using Proxies to Secure Applications and More

The last Austin OWASP presentation of the year is a must see for anyone
responsible for the security of a web application. It is a demonstration of
the various types of proxy software and their uses. We've all heard about
WebScarab, BurpSuite, RatProxy, or Paros but how familiar are you with
actually using them to inspect for web security issues? Did you know that
you can use RatProxy for W3C compliance validation? By the time you leave
this presentation, you will be able to go back to your office and wow your
co-workers with the amazing new proxy skills that you've acquired.
