    OWASP PDX - Game to Dethrone: A Least Privilege CTF with Wenjing Wu P2

    Online via Zoom

    Abstract: As more businesses migrate their workloads into cloud environments, the importance of following the principle of least privilege (PoLP) to mitigate security risks significantly increases. Unfortunately, the infrastructure being utilized and the mechanism for securing it in the cloud is complex and substantially different than traditional legacy infrastructure. As a result, the amount of practitioners that know how to secure cloud projects is insufficient compared to the number of cloud projects being created. To address this, this paper describes a Least Privilege CTF, a series of Google Cloud based exercises that can be quickly deployed at minimal cost, to allow players to practice applying PoLP in cloud deployments.

    Joint work with Wu-chang Feng.

    Bio: Current PHD student at PSU

  • OWASP PDX - Thunder CTF: Learning Cloud Security on a Dime with Wu-chang Feng P1

    Online via Zoom

    Abstract: Organizations have rapidly shifted infrastructure and applications over to public cloud computing services such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure. Unfortunately, such services have security models that are substantially different and more complex than traditional enterprise security models. As a result, misconfiguration errors in cloud deployments have led to dozens of well-publicized breaches. This paper describes Thunder CTF, a scaffolded, scenario-based CTF for helping students learn about and practice cloud security skills. Thunder CTF is easily deployed at minimal cost and is highly extensible to allow for crowd-sourced development of new levels as security issues evolve in the cloud.

    Joint work with Nicholas Springer.

    Bio: Wu-chang Feng is a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Portland State University where he works on topics in cloud computing and security. His current projects include developing CTFs and codelabs to teach advanced topics in security as well as performing outreach to high-schools via camps and internships through CyberPDX and Saturday Academy.
