We are having a FREE Hacking Dojo that I will be leading in San Diego next week. Imperva has provided a WAF. We will be utilizing Webgoat & Webscarab from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) organization. 1 version of Webgoat will be in front of the WAF, and the other will be protected behind the WAF. Participants will be able to compromise vulnerabilities externally, and see what the WAF picks up when attacks are launched against the internal machine. Refer to the OWASP-SD website post the event for highlights and presentation notes.
OWASP has chapters all over the world. Projects run the gamut from secure code design and secure API’s to penetration testing tools and techniques. I started the San Diego chapter a few years ago, and with the help of a small team we’re aggressively growing the chapter. I highly recommend that you seek out your local chapter and stop by for an event.
