Talk Title: "

Capture the Flag" Informational Meeting and Orientation

Talk Abstract:
Come learn how to apply secure web application development principles by t

aking part in an ISO sponsored Capture the Flag event. This event will last
one month and consists of five challenges requiring you to exploit a numbe

r of flaws in an LMS type application from the point of view of a student.

These challenges will take a few hours of independent work each week to com

plete. The goal is to provide developers hands on experience with the same

methods attackers use to exploit web sites, and thus a better understandin

g of how to prevent such vulnerabilities in their own applications.
