*Thursday. February 23, 2012 - 5:00pm - South Florida OWASP Meeting - Two
great talks and networking after*

Join us for our February meeting where in alignment with our previous
announcement, we will have two great talks. Please note that food and drink
after the meeting will also be sponsored by WhiteHat.

*Talk 1: Future of Cross Site Scripting defenses*
This talk will discuss the past methods used for cross-site scripting (XSS)
defense that were only partially effective. Learning from these lessons, we
will also discuss present day defensive methodologies that are effective,
but place an undue burden on the developer. We will then finish with a
discussion of future XSS defense mythologies that shift the burden of XSS
defense from the developer to various frameworks. These include
auto-escaping template technologies, browser-based defenses such as Content
Security Policy, and Javascript sandboxes such as the Google CAJA project
and JSReg.

*Presenter Bio*:
Jim Manico is the VP of Security Architecture for WhiteHat Security, a web
security firm.  Jim is a participant and project manager of the OWASP
Developer Cheatsheet series. He is also the producer and host of the OWASP
Podcast Series.


*Talk 2:Holiday Downtime, It wasn't just you!*
During the holiday season, two researchers in Germany introduced the world
to a severe denials of service attack during the 28th Chaos Computer
Congress in Berlin on December 28, 2011.  This vulnerability affects most
web application platforms including ASP.NET <http://asp.net/>, Java, and
PHP to name a few.  In this presentation, Chris will discuss and demo a
working proof of concept of this DoS attack.
