Applications are constantly under attack. Unfortunately, nearly all applications have no capability of detecting an attacker or responding before a breach occurs. Those applications sit passively and allow the attacker to constantly unleash attack after attack. Let's change the game and equip our application with the resources to detect an attack with high accuracy and respond in real time to prevent a compromise by eliminating the threat from the system.
In this talk we'll cover the OWASP AppSensor project – a project that details how to instrument an application to become attack aware and immediately respond to neutralize threats. This project is backed by multiple talented security experts that have been advancing the project for the past three years. AppSensor has been featured in the Department of Defense Cross Talk journal, presented at the US Department of Homeland Security resilient software conference and at security conferences around the world.
