* Application Level Vulnerabilities in Containerized Applications - Benjy Portnoy

Docker containers are transforming the way applications are developed and deployed. Closely tied to DevOps and Continuous Delivery, containers introduce both risks and opportunities to security management in Web applications. This talk will introduce the basic concepts of containers and micro services, how companies use them today, and how to support this technology while elevating the security posture of your application stacks. Various OWASP tools that leverage containers will also be presented.

* Hunting Security Bugs In Web Apps - Suleman Malik
There are so many web applications that work in the background but it can be difficult to know about them. In this talk I’m going to show you some bug hunting techniques and how I exploited vulnerabilities in some major websites. I will cover some topics, which includes bypassing Content security policy (CSP), API endpoint vulnerability, PostMessage vulnerability, CSRF, XSS, Session/Authentication flaws and exploiting some other OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities
