Improving Application Security Assurance with OWASP ASVS - MOSC2011

The primary aim of the OWASP Application Security Verification
Standard (ASVS) Project is to normalize the range in the coverage and
level of rigour available in the market when it comes to performing
Web application security verification using a commercially-workable
open standard. The standard provides a basis for testing application
technical security controls, as well as any technical security
controls in the environment, that are relied on to protect against
vulnerabilities such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and SQL injection.
This standard can be used to establish a level of confidence in the
security of Web applications.

During the presentation, Cecil will show how the ToV (Target of
Verification) can be applied in real life cases.
