</p><p><b>Topic: </b> Using Proxies to Secure Applications and More
</p><p>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. </p><p><b>Where:</b> National Instruments, 11500 N Mopac, Building C
