ChicagoRuby: Downtown - Rails Security in the Wild

Organiser - Chicago Ruby on Rails
Wed, 5 Dec 2012, 00:00 - 03:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , Chicago, US

Rails applications can contain real security vulnerabilities. The presenters will show how to improve security in Rails apps, and they will introduce several tools that can be used to help to identify issues during development.  The evening will conclude with an abbreviated debate with audience participation: builder vs. breaker.

About the Speakers
Matt Konda founded Jemurai to bridge the gap between developers and security experts.  He does training, security code reviews, and agile security consulting - but is focused on developing a product in Rails called HoneyField that provides analytics around security events to developers.

Jon Claudius is a security researcher at Trustwave SpiderLabs where he works on finding and fixing application security vulnerabilities.  He also works full time on a vulnerability scanner written in Ruby.  He spoke at BlackHat and Defcon this summer.

After most downtown meetings we head over to Elephant & Castle (185 N. Wabash) for refreshments & fellowship. Join us for a few minutes if you have time.

Please use your real name when you RSVP for downtown ChicagoRuby meetings. Reason: We are required to give a list of all attendees to the security desk prior to the meeting. If the name on your ID doesn't the match the name on the RSVP list, then Aon security will not let you in the building. Sorry for the inconvenience, but those are the rules of the Aon Building.
