We are excited to announce that OWASP will once again be holding a two day Developer Summit at AppSecUSA 2017 on September 19 & 20, 2017. OWASP is providing a structured platform for Developers two days prior to the AppSec USA 2017 conference. The Developer Summit will consist of sessions geared toward learning about security vulnerabilities.

There is NO charge to attend the Developer Summit, so come join us!

We do ask that you SIGN UP so we have an estimated headcount to be sure we have enough space and food.

Full Day Session
Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Time: 9am-5pm
Room: Coronado N&P

Presenter: Swaroop Yermalkar

Extreme iOS App Exploitation, Defense and ARM Exploitation

Detailed training contents: https://goo.gl/swp7F8 iOS has become one of the most popular mobile operating systems with more than 1.4 million apps available in the iOS App Store. Some security weaknesses in any of these applications or on the system could mean that an attacker can get access to the device and retrieve sensitive information. This training will show you how to conduct a wide range of penetration tests on iOS applications to uncover vulnerabilities and strengthen the system from attacks. Extreme iOS App Exploitation, Defense and ARM Exploitation is a 14 hrs session which will help you conduct end to end pentesting of iOS Applications and will also help you to understand the security measures which needs to be taken. This training will also have CTF challenge where attendees will use their skills learnt in session. To attend this hands-on session, all you have to do is bring your macbook with xcode installed on it.
