2014-04-29 2014-04-29 Infosecurity Europe London, UK Simon Bennetts ‘Applification’ of business and implications for security: Securing software development Agile software development is critical in enabling rapid adaption and speed to market for new applications. The continued ‘applification’ of business highlights the importance of embedding security into the SDLC to ensure security architecture is in place to minimise vulnerabilities and ensure software meets regulations and OWASP standards. Often there is a lack of communication between security and development as the business pushes to make the application available as quickly as possible. So how can security professionals ensure that applications are secure by design? How can security and development work together to achieve best practice and ensure the rapid delivery of secure applications to enable business growth securely? How can DevOps be used to embed security into the development cycle? This session will bring together security practitioners and developers to discuss how to build security into design.

2012-02-13 2012-02-17 HTML5 Games Work Week Toronto, Canada Rob Hawkes More and more video games developers are starting to look at HTML5 as a key platform for future growth. With the upcoming release of our market place, we are already starting to see support requests coming in, many of which are difficult to resolve without changes to the platform. Games also tend to be a great driver of technology and have high expectation on quality of user experience. Looking at ways to address their needs in an open way will help us improve the platform and positively impact users far beyond just the video game industry, especially those looking to build media rich experiences. This work week is intended to help figure out our path forward and determine how these issues fit in with other priorities.

To combat these new threats, browsers have been enhanced with many new security capabilities that automatically protect the user or can be enabled by a web application to create a more secure browsing experience. During this discussion we will explore the changing threat landscape and discuss new security controls within browsers that help protect users against today's most prevalent attack techniques.

What could be done so that users have more control over their smartphone? How would look like a phone that you can tinker with? We'll discuss Mozilla's plan with regards to mobile: Firefox for Android, and Mozilla's newer initiative codenamed Boot to Gecko, an Operating System made of the Web. ==== French Version ==== Les plans de Mozilla pour que les téléphones aussi soient libres et bidouillables Aujourd'hui, si on veut un smartphone, il faut passer par Apple ou par Android, c'est à dire des entreprises commerciales qui veulent contrôler soit l'appareil, soit tout savoir de l'utilisateur (ou les deux). Si on considère que le téléphone est "le rêve de Staline" comme le dit Richard Stallman http://www.networkworld.com/news/2011/031411-richard-stallman.html , que peut-on faire pour avoir un mobile sur lequel l'utilisateur a plus de contrôle et d'influence ? Un smartphone qu'on puisse hacker / bidouiller ? Mozilla se penche sur la question et veut offrir le confort d'utilisation que réclame le plus grand nombre, tout en préservant la "bidouillabilité" que les hackers réclament.

2012-06-28 2012-06-29 DevOps Days Mountain View Mountain View, CA Brandon Burton Abstract: Providing Infrastructure to a variety of application and web developers, which ultimately serves the needs of 450+ million plus end users is tricky at best. Needs in terms of environments, monitoring, support, and SLAs varies from product to product and group to group, and Mozilla IT does its best to service them all. As part of this, Project Petri was formed in late 2011 to help integrate ideas and practices from "cloud computing." Per https://wiki.mozilla.org/Petri, "Project Petri is a 1-year experiment in providing a Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and/or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering to make it easy for people with new ideas for web apps to try them quickly, with minimal impact on IT/Ops, and with an on-ramp to making webapps that are better/safer/faster/more maintainable if the ideas they're testing prove to be useful." Late 2011 and Q1 2012 were spent exploring various options and Q2 2012 will see us build out initial services for our developers to utilize. We'll be building an IaaS service based on Eucalyptus 3.0 and a PaaS service with Cloud Foundry. My talk with provide a brief history of Mozilla's challenges, how Petri arrived at the decision to use the technologies we have, and provide a status update for our progress with our "alpha" in Q2 2012. The goal of this talk will be to share some of the challenges Mozilla IT has faced in building more self service type services and their adoption amongst our developer teams and provide some real world feedback on how Eucalyptus and Cloud Foundry work.

2013-04-24 2013-04-24 Webinar: Running a web security testing program with OWASP ZAP and ThreadFix Online Simon Bennetts OWASP's Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications. ThreadFix is a software vulnerability management platform that allows organizations to track the results of testing and communicate vulnerabilities to software development teams. Used together, these open source tools allow organizations to build a comprehensive program of web application security testing and vulnerability management. Security analysts can perform automated and manual testing of critical applications, track the results of their testing and report metrics on their program's effectiveness. This webinar walks through the basics of using OWASP ZAP for web application scanning and testing. It then demonstrates storing and managing these results inside of ThreadFix and communicating them to development teams for resolution. Developers and security professionals alike will benefit from seeing how these two tools used in combination can allow any organization to start taking control of the security of their web applications.

2013-05-16 2013-05-17 Mobilism Amsterdam, Netherlands Rob Hawkes What you don't know will hurt you: Designing with and for existing content Are you trying to make responsive design scale for a complex site? Building an app, but your organization doesn't have an API yet? If so, you've probably got legacy content—content that already exists, and that doesn't fit neatly into your new project. What do you do? You could ignore it and end up with one of those responsive homepages that devolve into big content blobs after just one tap, or a one-off mobile site that no one can remember to maintain. You could put it off until it becomes the bane of your existence: the thing that "breaks" your design, because it's way messier than you’ve planned for. Or, you could deal with it. If you take the time to make existing content work for you—by understanding what you've got, identifying patterns and relationships in its structure, and cutting the cruft along the way—you'll end up with a system that will not just support your content, but _enhance_ its meaning, message, and power. In this talk, you'll learn how to start analyzing content and understanding its structure—and see how content knowledge can help make your mobile products better and longer-lasting.
2013-05-16 2013-05-17 NodePDX 2013 Portland, OR, US Benjamin Sternthal, Wraithan (Chris McDonald) "ZenIRCBot and the Art of Pub/Sub" Pub/sub has been growing in popularity for various pieces of infrastructure due to how much bigger our networks are getting. The publisher being able to completely ignore if there is anything listening or not and just fire off messages means that if a part of your infrastructure goes down it doesn't bring down the other parts. I'll be using my bot, ZenIRCBot, as a case study for pub/sub that is more approachable. ZenIRCBot connects to IRC then sends the things it receives into a redis pub/sub channel, it also listens on a pub/sub channel for things to do such as sending messages to IRC channels. On the other side of these channels are services that listen for events, react, and send back things to do. Or maybe they just listen or just send things to do, there is no reason why they have to both listen and send commands, this is the beauty of this services based model. This talk will be comprised of: A basic intro to Redis and what it is capable of. What pub/sub is and some basic examples. The case study: ZenIRCBot Problems and other various difficulties I've faced. Where is this project going?

2013-05-27 2013-05-29 Beyond Tellerrand Dusseldorf, Germany Christian Heilmann Fixing the mobile web Tuesday, 28th – 10:00 The mobile web got a bad reputation by now. Over-inflated promises, partnered with platforms that didn't allow HTML5 apps to access what they need and non-enthusiastic copy attempts of native apps made it seem like a hack and not worth exploring further. In reality the mobile web is the platform to bet on - if you care about reach and sustainability of your product. In this talk Chris Heilmann shows how Firefox OS gives the mobile web the boost it needs and why it makes sense to bet on HTML5 and brush up what you already publish instead of betting on a new platform.
2013-05-28 2013-05-30 FluentConf 2013 San Francisco, CA, US Brendan Eich, Heather Arthur O'Reilly's Fluent Conference was created to give developers working with JavaScript a place to gather and learn from each other. As JavaScript has become a significant tool for all kinds of development, there's a lot of new information to wrap your head around. And the best way to learn is to spend time with people who are actually working with JavaScript and related technologies, inventing ways to apply its power, scalability, and platform independence to new products and services. Fluent Conference provides a variety of forums for learning, from workshops and sessions with experts to the "hallway track" between sessions, where attendees informally connect and share questions, knowledge, and perspectives with their peers.

2013-05-29 2013-05-31 JS Conf US Amelia Island, FL, US Brendan Eich, Etienne Segonzac, Kevin Grandon, Francois Marier, Yury Delendik, Zach Carter JSConf is a unique conference organization, because we aren't really a conference organization at all. We are a very loose federation of developers who share the same general idea about how a technical conference should be held. We don't believe that one model or process fits all communities, in fact we are big advocates of locally run events driven by passionate individuals dedicated to the community. We make events that aren't from the standard conference playbook because we believe you (attendees, speakers, and sponsors) deserve more than that. We focus on two things, pushing the boundaries of what is thought to be conceivable with JS and providing exceptional human social activities that encourage community and friendship building. That sets the general tone for each of our events and from there, local individuals from each region drive the conference to its own incredible level of excellence. Our mission is to make the technology community better, more diverse, and more human; in short, we just want to make things better. JSConf does not focus on what is popular or cool now, but on topics that define and revolutionize the following year of technology. We have been the launching point for some of the most revolutionary products, services, and technologies on the web. We have also been the inspiration point and support base for a wide range of conferences beyond the "JSConf" name.

2013-06-17 2013-06-21 Hack in Paris Paris, France Frederik Braun Frederik's talk: Abstract: The Same Origin Policy is the foremost security policy in all browsers. Like most browser code, it underwent a significant amount of changes to keep up with the recent development for HTML5. This talk covers the Same Origin Policy implemented in modern browsers. It goes into detail where browsers behave similarly and where differences occur. The presentation of noteworthy exceptions, regardless of whether they are intended or have evolved out of legacy features, is then followed by an analysis of previous flaws. We identify parsing mismatches as the key source of policy bypasses and suggest methods to analyze and test browser code with regard to this discovery. The talk also gives an outlook into things that may come and evaluates the origin as a measure to bind authority for HTML5 APIs. Using our methods we have also identified security issues in the Java Runtime Environment and Mozilla Firefox, which will be presented in the end.

2013-08-09 2013-08-12 CampJS Australia Gold Coast Hinterland, Australia Angelina Fabbro Angelina will be presenting: "Building Apps for Firefox OS." "Launching around the world one country at a time is Firefox OS, Mozilla's push to bring smartphones to developing markets and provide an open alternative to proprietary phone operating systems. Building applications for Firefox OS is easy for even a marginally experienced web developer, particularly those with front-end experience. Server-side friends should participate too - apps need servers to talk to in order to accomplish interesting things from time to time after all. We'll discuss the operating system structure, device APIs, UX and UI guidelines, as well as how to publish your app in the app store, whether for free or for pay. Having a device is not mandatory to participate: the Firefox OS simulator add on is suitable to get started. Angelina will be bringing several devices for you to test your app on though too, as nothing is better than the real deal when it's in your hands. Special perk: If you happen to use your CampJS experience to make an app or the better portion of an app for the marketplace - you might just get to be taking one of these devices home with you."

2013-08-24 2013-08-24 Firefox OS Apps Workshop - Porto Alegre Porto Alegre, Brazil Robert Nyman, Angelina Fabbro, Havi Hoffman, Robyn Chau The idea with the workshop is to port existing web apps, or create new ones, and make sure they run on Firefox OS. Since apps are built on web technologies, porting should be easy – Open Web Apps are described more in detail in Getting started with Open Web Apps – why and how – and then you can spend time testing a number of the WebAPIs available, to give a richer experience for your app. Applying to attend: We’re looking for developers with a strong interest in open standards and existing web development skills. If you match any of these, you’re the person/team we’re looking for! - Built any HTML5 mobile web site before - Have been working with hybrid apps through PhoneGap or similar solutions - Built something for webOS - or in general have a good experience working with web apps. We’ll treat you to a great day of hacking and learning, and hands-on help from Mozilla people. The focus is on coding and trying things out, and naturally we’ll offer foods, drinks and such throughout the day. And, as an extra perk, you get to test your web app on a Firefox OS phone – a Geeksphone Keon – that you get to keep at the end of the day! So what are you waiting for? Apply now!
