Welcome and a brief update on OWASP Projects & Events from the OWASP London Chapter Leaders

Application Security Strategy and AST Lifecycle - Ilia Kolochenko

In the era of DevSecOps, CI/CD and Agile development many companies still become victims of disastrous data breaches caused by insecure applications. The presentation explains an application security strategy to reduce costs and assure holistic Application Security Testing (AST) of corporate web and mobile applications. The talk will also encompass application inventory and discovery, vulnerability correlation, virtual patching and practical usage of Machine Learning in application security. 

Universal Second Factor authentication, or why 2FA today is wubalubadubdub? - Yuriy Ackermann

Today main 2FA solutions are OTP(TOTP, HOTP), RSA keys and SMS. All these solutions lack UX, security and privacy, easy to phish, and mostly not standardised. In this talk we will introduce FIDO U2F protocol, talk about its key strength, overview the protocol, discover how it works, how it mitigates attacks,  what solutions there are on the market and who uses it, and for desert do some demos.
