Sounds like a potential topic for discussion/presentation at our next meeting? Volunteering ? :)

And on that note, we are long overdue for another meeting, but are having trouble getting speakers.
Anyone have a presentation they have up their sleeve? I am chasing a few people but don't have anyone concrete at the moment.

Otherwise do we want have a meeting anyways - one idea I had was to just go review in detail some of the outcomes of the global OWASP conference (did anyone go, or get involved remotely?) 

Or we could just get together for a beer :)

What say you?

Subject: [Owasp-sydney] tunneling proxy

Having some time on hand, a little bit of effort was consumed building a homebrew tunneling proxy. It got me thinking, how does a corporate network protect itself against these sorts of vunerabilities.

The only protection known is
1) proxy to mandate ip addresses that resolve to real dns names that have existed for a period of time.
2) use NTML authenticate proxy (technical barrier)
3) black list certain third party software/traffic hence the homebrew effort
4) payload inspection (need to use encryption - other than ssl)
5) Don't give admin access to users (we have - although is admin required)
