Here's a reminder and a confirmation of the location for our September
meeting this evening. Please note that we are back at Willamette
Topic: Securing Java Applications with OWASP's Enterprise Security
Presenter: Kevin Kenan
"While most developers have heard the saying *build security in,*
doing so typically requires each team to build and maintain its own
repository of security mechanisms. Not only is this risky and ad hoc, it
is also very inefficient and costly. Open Web Application Security
Project (OWASP)*s Enterprise Security API is a free and open
collection of security methods that can be easily used and reused. This
talk will discuss the various ESAPI modules including functionality
for: Authentication, Encryption, Validation, Encoding, Logging,
Kevin Kenan is an information security consultant, author, and speaker
based out of Eugene, Oregon. He is the author of Cryptography in the
Database and is a former senior manager in Symantec*s Information
Security department. He currently works as a security architect at Lunar
Logic, and his experience includes professional roles in secure software
and database development, cryptosystem design and implementation, and
We have books and t-shirts to give away that were donated by Sun. We

please let me know and we will work on that for future meetings. In the
meantime, bring food and drink if you will need it.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS:
We are always looking for presenters. Do you know someone who has an
interesting topic to present? Is there an area of Java development that
you have a lot of experience with that could be a good presentation
topic? If you have expertise but no experience as a presenter, let us
know and we can help. This could be a growth opportunity for you, and
we would love to schedule our presentations further out into the future.
Please contact Brian King at brian.king at iinet.com to volunteer.

you know to join us and to join the listserv
