Talk Title:  OWASP WTE: Application Testing Your Way (tm)

OWASP WTE or Web Testing Environment is an OWASP project designed to make
application security tools and documentation easily available and easy to
use.  Starting out as the OWASP Live CD project, it has now grown into a
project which produces 31 packaged AppSec tools and pre-configured virtual
machines for VMware, VirtualBox and Parallels.  By creating individual
packages for security tools, it is now possible to create ala carte, on
demand installation of application security tools you need.  As a proof of
concept, there is a beta sub-project of WTE which demonstrated installing
WTE in the cloud allowing for easy remote testing.  In this talk, Matt will
cover the goals and history behind OWASP WTE as well as future developments
and plans.


Matt has been involved in the information technology and application
development for more than 10 years. He is currently working at Rackspace as
the Product Security Engineering Lead for their Cloud products, leading the
application security team. Prior to joining Rackspace, Matt spent time as a
application security consultant and spent several years as the “appsec guy”
at a government agency. Matt's focus has been in application security
including testing, code reviews, design reviews and training. His
background in web application development and system administration helped
bring a holistic focus to Secure SDLC efforts he's driven.

 He has taught both graduate level university courses and for large
financial institutions. Matt has presented and provided training a various
industry events including DHS Software Assurance Workshop, Agile Austin,
AppSec EU, AppSec US, AppSec Academia, and AppSec Brazil. Matt is currently
active with the OpenStack Security Group (OSSG) and a fomer board member of
the OWASP Foundation. He is highly involved in many OWASP projects and
committees. Matt is the project leader of the OWASP OpenStack Security
project - a project to bring the OpenStack and OWASP communities together.

He has also run the OWASP WTE (Web Testing Environment) since 2008 which is
the source of the OWASP Live CD Project and Virtual Machines pre-configured
with tools and documentation for testing web applications. All running on
Linux (of course). Industry designations include the RHCE, Linux+,
Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified
Ethical Hacker (CEH). Matt Tesauro has a B.S. in Economics and a M.S in
Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University.
