WAF Virtual Patching Workshop at Blackhat USA 2010
Just wanted to let everyone know that if you are headed to Blackhat USA 2010 this summer in
Las Vegas, we have just added a 1-day workshop on the day before the Briefings start -
In the workshop, we will be mainly discussing the "Virtual Patching" concept of using a
WAF (ModSecurity in this case) and we will use the OWASP WebGoat app as the target. In
the workshop, we will talk virtual patching theory and then have hands-on labs where we
will show how to use Mod to virtually patch the various WebGoat lessons. As a side note -
we will also have a section on the new CRS v2.0 when discussing negative security models.
So, if you want to come and dive into the deep-end of the pool and have fun using some of
ModSecurity's advanced features (such as Lua and Content Injection) then sign-up now!
Brian Rectanus and I hope to see you all in Vegas!!! :)
