San Antonio OWASP Chapter: Thursday, June 16, 2011

Topic: Building a Secure Login

Presenter: Ben Broussard

Date: Thursday, June 16, 2011

Time: 11:30am-1:00pm

Location: San Antonio Technology Center (Web Room) 3463 Magic Drive San Antonio, TX 78229 http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=3463+Magic+Drive,+San+Antonio,+TX+78229

Abstract: This talk takes the standard, cookie-based login and authorization functionality through its paces. First I will walk through the requirements of common, single sign-on functionality. Then I will walk through attacks and their countermeasures including SQL injection and parameterized queries, session fixation and cookie cycling, session hijacking and about a dozen necessary countermeasures, and so on. The discussion will be programming language agnostic, instead focusing on the functional specifications.
