Tour-based Testing: The Hacker's Landmark Tour
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

Presented by the Quality Assurance Forum

Growing application complexity, coupled with the exploding increase in application surface area, has resulted in new quality challenges for testers. Some test teams are adopting a tour-based testing methodology because it’s incredibly good at breaking down testing into manageable chunks. However, hackers are paying close attention to systems and developing new targeted attacks to stay one step ahead.

Rafal Los takes you inside the hacker’s world, identifying the landmarks hackers target within applications and showing you how to identify the defects they seek out.

Learn what "landmarks” are, how to identify them from functional specifications, and how to tailor negative testing strategies to different landmark categories. Test teams, already choked for time and resources and now saddled with security testing, will learn how to pinpoint the defect - from the mountains of vulnerabilities often uncovered in security testing - that could compromise the entire application.

Meet the Speaker: Rafal Los, Hewlett-Packard Rafal Los, Web Application Security SME with Hewlett-Packard's Application Security Center (ASC), is a 10+ industry veteran who has worked in a variety of security positions - from consultant to Information Security Officer in the Fortune 100 - within some of the most demanding business environments.

Rafal’s unique blend of technical expertise and business knowledge enable him to teach audiences about security techniques, programs and processes that they can both understand strategically, and realistically apply. He has extensive experience in security testing, risk analysis and management, penetration testing and architecture and policy. Rafal is an accomplished writer maintaining 2 popular blogs with numerous appearances in the mainstream media and niche sites such as Slashdot. Previous successes include building and implementing a successful web application security program for one of the largest and most diverse companies in the world.
