A Hands-On Introduction to Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) and Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP)

Wednesday, May 29th, 2018
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Hosted by

Robert Statsinger

In this workshop, participants will receive a brief introduction to IAST/RASP and the Contrast Security platform, and then conduct a hands on laboratory using Contrast and Webgoat that will walk through a few basic use cases.

Prerequisites: Windows, Linux, or Mac workstation with JDK 1.8 installed, at least 10 gig free disk space, and at least 4 gig available RAM. Note that you'll be installing and running Webgoat, which is a deliberately insecure web application, so feel free to install it on a VM

Robert Statsinger is a Senior Solutions Architect at Contrast Security and has worked in Application Security for the past few years. His prior experience includes Applications Performance Management and its impact on DevOps, Intelligent Device Management, Enterprise Applications Integration, and developer tools and middleware. Robert holds a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California.

Suggested Parking:

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin (ideally on the 3rd floor) in any spot marked PROS Reserved (but not PROS Priority Reserved), taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage (if needed) and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the right just before you reach the elevator bank.
