Web Penetration & Hacking Tools

Most security presentation to developers are a dry rehashing of OWASP Top Ten; do this and don't do that with terse snippets of code.

This session aims to be different in that the tools that are available to penetration testers (and hackers) will be demonstrated to show how a web application is attacked. Using the OWASP Top Ten as a guide, a combination of vulnerabilities will be used to attack a demonstration application. Two tools that will be highlighted are sqlmap and BeEF (Browser Exploitation Framework).

Target audience: Developers that want to be more security conscience
