Three Day Training

Days: September 23 to September 25
Instructors: Abraham Aranguren
This course has been prepared after years of research and experience gained through pentesting mobile applications. It is structured to follow the OWASP Mobile Top Ten and the OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide. This is a hands-on practical course, the skills gained can be applied to mobile security assessments immediately.
Each day starts with a brief introduction to the mobile platform for that day and then continues with a look at the static analysis, moves on to dynamic checks finishing off with a nice CTF session to test the skills gained.
Day 1 includes but is not limited to a brief introduction to Android security, a series of techniques focused on static analysis, followed by dynamic analysis covering both monitoring and modifying app behavior at runtime. The day ends with beautiful CTF challenges to entertain even advanced mobile app penetration testers.
Day 2 begins with a brief iOS security crash course, static analysis techniques, followed by dynamic analysis including both monitoring and modifying app behavior at runtime. The day ends with more lovely CTF challenges.
Day 3 takes a deeper look at instrumentation on both Android and iOS, with a special focus on app behavior modification at runtime. Learn more about Frida scripts, Objection, and Xposed modules. Bypass jailbreak detection and much more. End the day by testing your skills, more CTF time!

Have you ever been tasked with reviewing 3.2 million lines of code manually for SQL Injection, XSS, and Access Control flaws? Have you been asked to review a new framework on short notice? Does the idea of reviewing Ruby, Go, or Node code leave you with heartburn? This course addresses all of these common challenges in modern code review. We have concentrated on taking our past adventures in code review, the lessons we’ve learned along the way, and made them applicable for others who perform code reviews. We will share our methodology to perform analysis of any source code and suss out security flaws, no matter the size of the code base, or the framework, or the language. You as a student will learn the methodology, techniques, approach, and tools used by Seth Law and Ken Johnson to understand code flows, trace user input, identify vulnerabilities, and effectively secure an application codebase.
Upon completion, attendees will know:
Students will take away knowledge and experience in approaching numerous code languages and frameworks to complete a security source code review. In addition, the learned methodology can be customized by the attendee to fit into any organization’s security SDLC. Finally, the attendee will have the tools to review source code for any web, mobile, or modern application, whether or not the targeted language is specifically covered during the course

Two Day Training

Days: September 24 to September 25
Instructors: Sebastien Deleersnyder
This action-packed two-day threat modeling course is designed specifically to help DevOps engineers improve the reliability and security of delivered software. Sebastien Deleersnyder teaches an iterative and incremental threat modeling method that is integrated with the development and deployment pipeline.
Speed of delivery is crucial with shorter development cycles, increased deployment frequency, and more dependable releases, and Sebastien focuses on a risk-based unified threat modeling practice that is in close alignment with business objectives. You’ll explore tools and learn how to use threat modeling as code to integrate threat modeling in the CI/CD pipeline; you’ll also discover how to threat model the CI/CD pipeline itself.
Sebastien bases the training material and hands-on workshops on real live use cases in his experience. You’ll be challenged to perform practical threat modeling in squads of three to four people, covering the different stages of threat modeling on an incremental business-driven CI/CD scenario:
Sprint 1: Modeling a hotel booking web and mobile application, sharing the same REST backend
Sprint 2: Threat identification as part of migrating the booking system application to AWS
Sprint 3: AWS threat mitigations for the booking system built on microservices
Sprint 4: Building an attack library for CI/CD pipelines
Handouts, templates, and lab challenges will be made available before the training.

Days: September 24 to September 25
Instructors: Madhu Akula
This 2 day attack-focused, hands-on training will set you on the path to using common attack techniques against docker, kubernetes, containerized infrastructure. It will help you to learn the approach to follow and the process for testing and auditing containers and Kubernetes clusters. By the end of the training, participants will able to identify and exploit applications running on containers inside Kubernetes clusters with a hands-on approach.
An organization using micro services or any other distributed architecture rely heavily on containers and container orchestration engines like Kubernetes and as such its infrastructure security is paramount to its business operations. This course will set the base for security testers and DevOps teams to test for common security vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses across containerized environments and distributed systems. It also helps to understand the approach and process to audit the Kubernetes environment for security posture.
* The focus is on the security aspects of the application and the container infrastructure
* The participants will learn the common tools and techniques that are used to attack applications running in containerized environments
* The participants will be introduced to Docker, Kubernetes and learn to assess the attack surfaces applicable for a given application on the cluster
* The participants will learn how to audit for security based on best practices using tools and custom scripts
* At least 8 GB of RAM, 10GB of disk space free on the system
* Laptop should support hardware-based visualization
* If your laptop can run a 64-bit virtual machine in Oracle VirtualBox it should work
* Other visualization software might work but we will not be able to provide support for that
* USB Ports for copying data from Pen drive
* Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Free trial account (
Student Requirements:
* Basic knowledge of using the Linux command line
* System administration basics like servers, applications configuration, and deployment
* Familiarity with container environments like Docker would be useful

One Day Training

Days: September 25
Instructors: Bart De Win
OWASP SAMM2 ( is the prime maturity model for software assurance that provides an effective and measurable way for all types of organizations to analyse and improve their software security posture. Building security into the software development and management practices of a company can be a daunting task. There are many elements to the equation: company structure, different stakeholders, technology stacks, tools and processes, and so forth. Implementing software assurance will have a significant impact on the organisation. Yet, trying to achieve this without a good framework is most likely leading to just marginal and unsustainable improvements. OWASP Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) gives you a structural and measurable framework to do just that. It enables you to formulate and implement a strategy for software.
The goal of this one-day training, which is a mix of training and workshop, is for the participants to get a more in-depth view on and practical implementation of the SAMM2 model. The training has run successfully for several years now.
The training is setup in three different parts.
In the first part, an overview is presented of the SAMM2 model and similarities and differences with other similar models are explained. The different domains (governance, design, implementation, verification, and operations), their activities and relations are explained. This will incorporate the updates of the v2 of the model. Furthermore, different elements (e.g., metrics) are discussed and the overall usage scenarios of the model are explained.
The first half-day will be spent on performing an actual SAMM2 evaluation of your own organization (or one that you have worked for). We will go through an evaluation of all the SAMM domains and discuss the results in the group. This will give all participants a good indication of the organization's maturity wrt. software assurance. In the same effort, we will define a target maturity for your organization and identify the most important challenges in getting there. All of this will be executed using the new SAMM2 toolbox.
The final part of the training will be dedicated to specific questions or challenges that you are facing wrt. secure development in your organization. For instance, what about agile development, DevSecOps, outsourcing, or how do you best organize test automation? In this group discussion, experience between the different participants will be shared to address these questions.
In case you haven't started a secure software initiative in your organization yet, this training should provide you with the necessary foundations and ideas to do so. Be prepared for the highly effective and applicable treatment of this large domain! And in case you would be concerned about confidentiality issues, we adhere to the Chatham House Rule.

The rising popularity of agile and DevOps forced the AppSec world to start interacting with development teams. Quite often this is done with a bolt-on approach, resulting in activities that teams need to start doing on top of their existing way of working. Since many security(-like) processes were never designed for a high-velocity environment this leads to ineffective and time-consuming processes. It is time to rethink and redesign these processes and make them add value!
This training is based on my presentation “Taming rainbow shitting unicorn” and will be interactive with group exercises for better understanding of the topics.
In this training, we’ll take a look at a couple of examples and explore how we could make them more efficient and effective. Topics that for example will be covered are:
Agile and DevOps basics
The role of automation in development, deployment, and operations
Agile threat modeling
Patch management in DevOps environments
Incident handling feedback loops
Cloud challenges and advantages
Combining SRE and DevSecOps
