The Definitive Insider’s Guide to Auditing Software Security This is one of the most detailed, sophisticated, and useful guides to software security auditing ever written. The authors are leading security consultants and researchers who have personally uncovered vulnerabilities in applications ranging from sendmail to Microsoft Exchange, Check Point VPN to Internet Explorer. Drawing on their extraordinary experience, they introduce a start-to-finish methodology for “ripping apart” applications to reveal even the most subtle and well-hidden security flaws. The Art of Software Security Assessment covers the full spectrum of software vulnerabilities in both UNIX/Linux and Windows environments. It demonstrates how to audit security in applications of all sizes and functions, including network and Web software. Moreover, it teaches using extensive examples of real code drawn from past flaws in many of the industry's highest-profile applications. Coverage includes • Code auditing: theory, practice, proven methodologies, and secrets of the trade • Bridging the gap between secure software design and post-implementation review • Performing architectural assessment: design review, threat modeling, and operational review • Identifying vulnerabilities related to memory management, data types, and malformed data • UNIX/Linux assessment: privileges, files, and processes • Windows-specific issues, including objects and the filesystem • Auditing interprocess communication, synchronization, and state • Evaluating network software: IP stacks, firewalls, and common application protocols • Auditing Web applications and technologies

The International Conference on Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Se- rity (AIMS 2010) was a single-track event integrating regular conference paper s- sions, tutorials, keynotes, and a PhD student workshop into a highly interactive event. The main goal of AIMS is to look beyond borders and to stimulate the exchange of ideas across different communities and among PhD students. AIMS 2010 collocated the International Summer School in Network and Service Management (ISSNSM 2010). This unique summer school offers hands-on learning experiences in network and service management topics, which requires attendees to work in practical on-site courses combined with preceding short tutorial-like teaching sessions. AIMS 2010––which took place during June 23–25, 2010, in Zürich, Switzerland and was hosted by the Communication Systems Group CSG, Department of Inform- ics IFI, of the University of Zürich UZH––followed the already established tradition of an unusually vivid and interactive conference series in terms of the fourth conf- ence, after successful instantiations in Oslo, Norway 2007, Bremen, Germany 2008, and Enschede, The Netherlands 2009. AIMS 2010 focused especially on autonomous management aspects of modern networks and their services. The set of mechanisms, peer-to-peer-based schemes, scalability aspects, and autonomous approaches are of major interest. In particular the design, monitoring, management, and protection of networked systems in an efficient, secure, and autonomic manner are key to comm- cially viable and successful networks and services.

Preliminary This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book answers two central questions: firstly, is it at all possible to verify electronic equipment procured from untrusted vendors? Secondly, can I build trust into my products in such a way that I support verification by untrusting customers? In separate chapters the book takes readers through the state of the art in fields of computer science that can shed light on these questions. In a concluding chapter it discusses realistic ways forward. In discussions on cyber security, there is a tacit assumption that the manufacturer of equipment will collaborate with the user of the equipment to stop third-party wrongdoers. The Snowden files and recent deliberations on the use of Chinese equipment in the critical infrastructures of western countries have changed this. The discourse in both cases revolves around what malevolent manufacturers can do to harm their own customers, and the importance of the matter is on par with questions of national security. This book is of great interest to ICT and security professionals who need a clear understanding of the two questions posed in the subtitle, and to decision-makers in industry, national bodies and nation states.

Risk-based security testing, the important subject of this book, is one of seven software security touchpoints introduced in my book, Software Security: Building Security In. This book takes the basic idea several steps forward. Written by masters of software exploit, this book describes in very basic terms how security testing differs from standard software testing as practiced by QA groups everywhere. It unifies in one place ideas from Michael Howard, David Litchfield, Greg Hoglund, and me into a concise introductory package. Improve your security testing by reading this book today." -Gary McGraw, Ph.D., CTO, Cigital; Author, Software Security, Exploiting Software, Building Secure Software, and Software Fault Injection; www.cigital.com/~gem "As 2006 closes out, we will see over 5,000 software vulnerabilities announced to the public. Many of these vulnerabilities were, or will be, found in enterprise applications from companies who are staffed with large, professional, QA teams. How then can it be that these flaws consistently continue to escape even well-structured diligent testing? The answer, in part, is that testing still by and large only scratches the surface when validating the presence of security flaws. Books such as this hopefully will start to bring a more thorough level of understanding to the arena of security testing and make us all a little safer over time." -Alfred Huger, Senior Director, Development, Symantec Corporation "Software security testing may indeed be an art, but this book provides the paint-by-numbers to perform good, solid, and appropriately destructive security testing: proof that an ounce of creative destruction is worth a pound of patching later. If understanding how software can be broken is step one in every programmers' twelve-step program to defensible, secure, robust software, then knowledgeable security testing comprises at least steps two through six." -Mary Ann Davidson, Chief Security Officer, Oracle "Over the past few years, several excellent books have come out teaching developers how to write more secure software by describing common security failure patterns. However, none of these books have targeted the tester whose job it is to find the security problems before they make it out of the R&D lab and into customer hands. Into this void comes The Art of Software Security Testing: Identifying Software Security Flaws. The authors, all of whom have extensive experience in security testing, explain how to use free tools to find the problems in software, giving plenty of examples of what a software flaw looks like when it shows up in the test tool. The reader learns why security flaws are different from other types of bugs (we want to know not only that 'the program does what it's supposed to,' but also that 'the program doesn't do that which it's not supposed to'), and how to use the tools to find them. Examples are primarily based on C code, but some description of Java, C#, and scripting languages help for those environments. The authors cover both Windows and UNIX-based test tools, with plenty of screenshots to see what to expect. Anyone who's doing QA testing on software should read this book, whether as a refresher for finding security problems, or as a starting point for QA people who have focused on testing functionality." -Jeremy Epstein, WebMethods State-of-the-Art Software Security Testing: Expert, Up to Date, and Comprehensive The Art of Software Security Testing delivers in-depth, up-to-date, battle-tested techniques for anticipating and identifying software security problems before the "bad guys" do. Drawing on decades of experience in application and penetration testing, this book's authors can help you transform your approach from mere "verification" to proactive "attack." The authors begin by systematically reviewing the design and coding vulnerabilities that can arise in software, and offering realistic guidance in avoiding them. Next, they show you ways to customize software debugging tools to test the unique aspects of any program and then analyze the results to identify exploitable vulnerabilities. Coverage includes Tips on how to think the way software attackers think to strengthen your defense strategy Cost-effectively integrating security testing into your development lifecycle Using threat modeling to prioritize testing based on your top areas of risk Building testing labs for performing white-, grey-, and black-box software testing Choosing and using the right tools for each testing project Executing today's leading attacks, from fault injection to buffer overflows Determining which flaws are most likely to be exploited by real-world attackers This book is indispensable for every technical professional responsible for software security: testers, QA specialists, security professionals, developers, and more. For IT managers and leaders, it offers a proven blueprint for implementing effective security testing or strengthening existing processes.
