OWASP PDX - Yes, You Too Can Break Crypto: Exploiting Common Crypto Mistakes
Zoom Online - See link at Meetup page

Abstract Cryptography is tricky. Sure, everybody knows not to roll out their own crypto, but is it enough? Are the standard algorithms, libraries, and utilities always used the right way? This is of course a rhetorical question! Humans keep making mistakes that other humans can exploit, and Murphy’s law continues to prove true: “If there is a wrong way to do something, then someone will do it.” In this talk, not only will we discuss what can go wrong, but also how attackers could take advantage of that. Insufficient entropy? Static initialization vector? Key reuse in stream cipher? Lack of ciphertext integrity? We’ve heard these terms and may be familiar with them in theory, but let’s see actual examples of these and other crypto mistakes and corresponding exploits, and understand how they could lead to real life problems. Are you not on an offensive team and not interested in exploitation? Then this talk is for you too! Come and learn how to avoid common crypto mistakes in your code!

Bio Alexei began his career as a software developer. A decade later, he realized that breaking code was way more fun than writing code, and decided to switch direction. He is now a full-time application security professional, with several years of assisting various development teams in delivering secure code, as well as security consulting. He holds OSCP and CISSP, and currently works as a lead product security engineer for Salesforce.

Workshop Sessions And just like that, the world changed. And you need to change too. Each of these Rise Up Workshop Sessions is designed to build on each other with insights and expertise that helps you know where to put your energy, both now and into the future. 1. Perspective Sure the world has changed, but what does that mean for your business? During this session we will examine the bird’s eye view of businesses across multiple industries. What are the emerging trends? What is and isn’t working? What innovations are happening? And what the hell does “bounce back” mean anyway? 2. Connection Let’s talk about how to connect with customers and clients in new ways based on our new reality. People pay attention to things that are important to them. Create an emotional connection that goes beyond what you sell and understand how to build passion around your products and services. 3. Opportunity Moving the needle is about turning over every rock in your yard looking for opportunities you might not have seen before and trying new things. What are the top tactics that you might want to consider? Our speakers and panelists will discuss real ideas for you to put to the test and unearth opportunities for marketing your business.

Sunshine Workshop / Transparency Tool Teach-in
Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR

Sunshine Week is a national initiative started in 2005 by the American Society of News Editors. It was established with the goal of bringing awareness to the public about government transparency and freedom of information. The week coincides with the birthday of James Madison, who was a key proponent of the Bill of Rights and of governmental checks and balances. He was born on March 16th, and this year, Sunshine Week takes place March 15 - 21.

Robin Ryan will join us this month to share ways to find hard-to-reach data about our government. She'll lead a workshop that guides us through a series of websites and other resources that reveal details that can help us shine light onto our government and keep it accountable.

This event will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring a laptop or tablet along with your ideas and questions!

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions 6:15 PM: Presentation

Speaker bio:

Robin Ryan identifies as an investigative reporter and radio journalist focused on issues of social and economic justice. The Transparency Tool Teach-in is a workshop inspired by Sunshine Week, an annual convergence held to promote transparency and accountability in American government. The program is designed to show people how to navigate data-driven websites containing information on everything from money in politics to governmental spending from the hyper-local to the federal level. In the age of fake news, one immediate route to reliability means taking an active role in getting information unfiltered by editorial review.

This workshop is an introduction to computer hardware! Students will identify basic components of desktop and laptop computers, learn what role each part plays, and identify where those parts go inside of a computer. Students will learn what makes a computer a “computer,” and a basic framework for computer safety and troubleshooting.

No prior knowledge is necessary, but we recommend taking Fundamentals of a Computer Technician and Hardware Basics 1 first.

Recommended Prerequisites: Fundamentals of a Computer Technician & Hardware Basics 1
