This is going to be a good one - we have Michael Coates from Mozilla presenting remotely (via Skype) about self-defending web applications.  This is based on his work on the OWASP AppSensor project and should be really interesting.  See below for details - hope to see everyone there and please feel free to bring a friend or colleague.

San Antonio OWASP Chapter: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Topic: Attack Aware Applications
Presenter: Michael Coates
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Time:  11:30am-1:00pm
San Antonio Technology Center (Web Room)
3463 Magic Drive
San Antonio, TX 78229

Attack Aware Applications:
Imagine being able to detect an attacker in your application while they are searching for vulnerability and then locking out their account before they can do any harm.  The OWASP AppSensor project provides a strategy for enabling your applications to detect and respond to attackers in real time.  More powerful then generic detection with a WAF, the AppSensor approach allows detection of targeted application attacks attempting to exploit all areas including: business logic, access control, session management, injection attacks and more.  This presentation will discuss techniques for implementing such a system within your application using existing technologies or by leveraging ESAPI.
