Episode 81 with Diana Kelley
In episode 81 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca spoke to Diana Kelley, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Protect AI. Diana and Tanya worked together at Microsoft, and to say that Diana is a pillar of the information security industry is somewhat of an understatement. Together they discussed problems with Large Language Models (LLMs) ingesting crappy code, and bad licenses, the OSSF (and it's goodness), and that sometimes people don't even realize they are breaking software licences when they use what an LLM has produced.We discussed the fact that if a CVE comes out for a library an LLM gave you, but it didn't identify it with the correct name of the library, you wouldn't receive notifications about it. She clarified how ML pipelines are set up, how data scientists work, with insecure juniper laptops all over the place (perhaps a generalization on my part). We discussed how data science seems to be a topic a lot of CISOs are pretending aren't in their domain to protect, but both of us agreed that is not so. They have some of the most valuable data your organization can possess.We also covered best practices for securing MLSec, the OWASP Top Ten for LLMs, and the new free community her company has started MLSECOPS. She also released an update version of her book, Practical Cyber Security Architecture!.Diana Links:Diana on LinkedInhttps://www.wicys.org/.

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 80 with Ray Leblanc
In episode 80 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca brings on her long-time friend Ray Leblanc of 'Hella Secure' blog. You may remember him from several Alice and Bob Learn streams, or from his cutting sarcasm on social media.Ray and Tanya discussed what they always discuss: AppSec. They compared AppSec responsibility versus business responsibility, how to "put it down" at the end of the day in order to avoid burn out, and that 'perhaps Tanya should learn to stay in her lane?' We covered when bug fixes don't get merged and released, the first year of the brand new conference which focuses only on Threat Modelling (ThreatModCon) and that Tanya will be Adam Shostack's teaching assistant for his course that is part of OWASP Global AppSec the first week of November (get tickets here).  Although Ray professes to be bad at threat modelling on the podcast, if you follow any of his work you know that's absolutely untrue, and Tanya teases him accordingly about it.Ray's Links:https://www.hella-secure.com/https://twitter.com/Raybeornhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/raymondlleblanc/Very special thanks to our sponsor, Semgrep!Semgrep Supply Chain’s reachability analysis lets you ignore the 98% of false positives in open source vulnerabilities and quickly find and fix the 2% of issues that are actually reachable.Get Your Free Trial Here! Semgrep also makes a ludicrously fast static analysis tool They have a free and paid version of this tool, which uses an open-source engine, and offers additional community created ruleset! Join We Hack Purple! Check out our brand new courses in We Hack Purple Academy.

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 79 with Isabelle Mauny
In episode 79 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca spoke to Isabelle Mauny , Field CTO and founder of 42Crunch! Isabelle and Tanya met way back in 2018, at an API Security workshop in Britain, having no idea they would be friends for years to come! Isabelle is extremely passionate about securing APIs, and has volunteered for several different groups and projects in order to try to steer our industry in a more secure direction, including being president of the OpenAPI group and lending her skills to the OWASP DevSlop project to fix up our Pixi app.Together they discussed several of the challenges when creating secure APIs, including: BOLA (Broken Object Level Authorization), bots, all sorts of other broken authentication (not just object-level), verbose error messages, the fact that APIs are *not* invisible to hackers, and so much more. Isabelle covered how to have a positive security culture, and build out a DevSecOps program that includes API security, what the OpenAPI protocol is, and several inspiring customer success stories. We also talked about her free IDE Plugin that gives you a score out of 100 for security, and how Tanya’s first try at it she only got a score somewhere in the 20’s to start! Of course, we also talked about the OWASP API Security Top Ten, and how that helped bring the important of securing APIs into the mainstream, rather than an obscure thing only AppSec people like Isabelle and Tanya obsess over.Isabelle also spoke about a webinar she will be on July 13, Mastering Secure API Development with GitHub and 42Crunch, you can sign up here: https://42crunch.com/mastering-secure-api-development-with-github-and-42crunch/Get to know Isabelle:Isabelle Mauny, co-founder and Field CTO of 42Crunch, is a technologist at heart.

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 78 with Jason Haddix
In episode 78 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca brings Jason Haddix on to talk about artificial intelligence, and (of course) how to hack it! Jason discussed how to use AI for both defense and offence, using plain language (conversational), rather than code, and what a red teaming exercise looks for such a system. We talked about what a large language model looks like, cleaning up data, and how easy it is to get them to do bad things. Jason invited everyone to the AI Village at Def Con this year, and so much more! There was also much love for Daniel Miessler, his articles on AI, and his newsletter Unsupervised Learning (https://danielmiessler.com/newsletter/).

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 77 with Brendan Sheairs
In episode 77 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca chats with Brendan Sheairs about her latest obsession; security champions! Brendan has significantly more experience in this area than anyone Tanya has met, so they dug in deep on this topic. We covered a lot in this episode, including;  •       What the heck are security champions? Why would someone want them?•    You need building blocks◦                    Must haves: goals! Who will run it! What problem are they solving?•    What is the business goal? Or objective? You need a justification to do this!•    Getting buy in to be allowed to build a program•    Having fewer bugs in production•    Moral? Are they happier? Are they missing less work?•    Biggest challenge, time commitment for champions, and then no one is allowed to work on it•    You need top down buy in, but then the work happens bottom up•    10% for champions, what does this mean? What can it look like?•    Conflicts of interest or alignment with other important things like deadline and bonuses•    Motivations: Career advancement and financial•    Things we can do to motivate champions•    What does a good program look like?•    If someone leading the program?

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 72 with Scott Helme AGAIN
In episode 72 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca brings Scott Helme back on because she just cannot get enough when it comes to security headers! You can watch and listen to his first episode here (https://wehackpurple.com/podcast/episode-69-with-scott-helme/). In this episode we focus on the “new” security headers from Scott’s great blog article where he first introduced the public to them (https://scotthelme.co.uk/coop-and-coep/). The new security header’s focus on protecting us from side-channel attacks like Spectre and Meltdown, and we really honed in on how to configure each one, and why we would need or want them. The features are powerful, and we discussed building up to using them, for best results. Part of the reason that Scott built SecurityHeaders.com was to contribute to solving the problem of ‘how do we get the message out there’. SecurityHeaders.com is an educational tool rather than any kind of definitive or perfect security assessment tool, but it’s still incredibly useful. He’s working hard to raise awareness, and podcast episodes like this can help.  One of the most striking things Scott hears when teaching his and Troy Hunt’s ‘Hack Yourself First’ course when they talk about headers like CSP and HSTS, is: “Wow, I didn’t know this existed!” There is a huge gap that we need to bridge in security between these things existing, and people knowing they exist and then actually using them. This is a bug hurdle for folks like us.We also talked a bit about how all of these security headers are able to create reports and tell you what’s up with your app. Lucky for us, Scott built Report-URI so we can receive those reports with ease! Scott also has another free tool he created: https://crawler.ninja/ too, where he scans the top 1 million sites every day and looks at various things, including their use of security headers. As an example, you can see this list of sites using a CSP from today: https://crawler.ninja/files/csp-sites.txtScott also creates reports using his crawler data that showing trends over time and changes in the usage of security features like various security headers: https://scotthelme.co.uk/tag/crawler-report/Very special thanks to our sponsor: Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu! Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu are hosting CYBERJUTSU CON 4.0 and the 10th Annual Cyberjutsu Awards on June 24, 2023!!!

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 76 with Anshu Bansal
In episode 76 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca brings Anshu Bansal, the CEO of CloudDefense.ai, back onto the show for a second time to discuss “solving problems in application security”. Tanya and Anshu have worked together quite a while, as Tanya has been an advisor at Cloud Defense since it was a drawing on the back of a napkin!We choose this topic because Anshu recently spoke at the OWASP Bay Area meetup chapter, and he told Tanya his talk was about "solving the AppSec problems”. Obviously, she had to hear more about this. They dove into Anshu’s definition of false positives (the traditional meaning, plus legit vulnerabilities that aren’t reachable or otherwise do not cause business risk), as well as how to prioritize issues in way that makes more sense for the business. He simplified a lot of ideas that sometimes technical folks struggle with, such as how to get your message across to the business so that they agree to fix what matters most.More Anshu!Anshu generously offered to connect with any of our listeners on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anshubansal/He’s part of the Cloud Defense blog https://www.clouddefense.ai/blogThey also have a Newsletter https://www.clouddefense.ai/contactVery special thanks to our sponsor: Semgrep!Semgrep Supply Chain’s reachability analysis lets you ignore the 98% of false positives in open source vulnerabilities and quickly find and fix the 2% of issues that are actually reachable. Get Your Free Trial Here! Semgrep also makes a ludicrously fast static analysis tool They have a free and paid version of this tool, which uses an open-source engine, and offers a community-created rule set!

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 73 with Amanda Crawley
In episode 73 of the We Hack Purple Podcast, host Tanya Janca talks to guest Amanda Crawley of 1Password! We talked about how developers need special tools to help them do their jobs, securely, then we chatted about several things that can help them, especially password managers! Developers are huge targets for malicious actors and Amanda shared TONS of ways devs can protect themselves, and their companies they work for:• Keep everything up to date - phones, computers, routers, all software (apple just released an update to fix actively exploited vulnerabilities!)• Use strong, unique passwords. Change passwords when:  ◦ The respective service recommends a password change, or;  ◦ The password has been shared with individuals who are no longer authorized to use the password, or;  ◦ The password has been used for another service.• Use encryption• Follow your company’s security policies• Don’t disable your operating system’s malware detection (Windows Defender, XProtect)• Vet your third party libraries and dependencies, and then keep an eye on them to make informed decisions about updating• Follow the principle of least privilege - people can’t be compromised for things they don’t have access to• Consider non-SMS based 2FA (google authenticator, 1Password, yubikey), but any MFA is better than none  ◦ Something you know (pin, password)  ◦ Something you have (token, hardware key)  ◦ Something you are (biometrics)• Don’t store user data locally (if you need it, delete immediately after you’re done with it)Things you can do today!• Audit connected oauth apps (to social media platforms, github, etc)• Delete old accounts • Check haveibeenpwned.com• Check your router for firmware updates (I did this yesterday)Developer hack examples • https://thehackernews.com/2023/03/lastpass-hack-engineers-failure-to.html • https://www.upguard.com/blog/what-caused-the-uber-data-breach • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Equifax_data_breach • https://www.zdnet.com/article/anatomy-of-the-target-data-breach-missed-opportunities-and-lessons-learned/ • https://www.synopsys.com/blogs/software-security/heartbleed-bug/Links From Amanda: · https://1password.com/developers · https://1password.com/developer/student · https://education.github.com/pack · https://hashnode.com/hackathons/1passwordVery special thanks to our sponsor: Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu!

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 71 with Ariel Shin
In episode 71 of the We Hack Purple Podcast Host Tanya Janca speaks to the Ariel Shin from Twillio! Ariel does product security, and as you might imagine, Tanya had at least 100 questions for her.  We discussed threat modelling, influence, persuasion and other communication skills needed to be an effective #AppSec person (or any security professional, for that matter). The conversation got really interesting as we dove into how to communicate with an executive, versus an engineer, versus a non-tech person, and how we can communicate and advocate for security (effectively) in the process. She talked about breaking down an argument into multiple pieces, to ensure you get the message across the best possible way. If you are someone who has struggled with convincing the rest of IT to patch or fix bugs, she breaks down how to do this in a way Tanya plans to adopt from now on. Take a listen at the links below!  Ariel’s Bio: Ariel Shin is a product security team lead at Twilio. Ariel started her career as a penetration tester, specializing in web and mobile security, before moving into the product security space. Ariel enjoys building relationships with developers through secure code reviews, threat modeling, security training, and vulnerability management.

In episode 68 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca dives into Domain Driven Design (and development) with Gagandeep Singh. Gagandeep is an avid blogger, and Tanya read his article on DDD and just had to interview him. We discussed if Design Driven design or development are those the same thing (they aren’t!), the security advantages of DDD, how Trusted Types and Content Security Policy Header come into play! We discussed the concept of having the security of a feature be part of the design and feature itself, and the huge security advantages we can expect to see. To hear more, you need to see the episode! Gagandeep’s Bio:Gagandeep Juneja is an experienced Information Security professional working in the Information Technology and Services Industry. Working in Application Security domain, security assessment, threat modeling, architecture review, DevSecOps and guidelines for security technologies to develop effective secure solutions.

How do we get them a seat at the table? How can we share knowledge and educate people en mass? Can we advocate for others? (Spoiler alert: Jeremy and I gave several examples of both sides of that equation) We talked about “Saying yes more often!” when we are asked to do something a bit outside our comfort zone, if it might bring us new opportunities. We talked about imposter syndrome, different learning styles, and that you can come from any career, education or background, and there’s a place for YOU in our field!Jeremy also shared some links and events too!ThreatX Cyber 101 Event!

We Hack Purple Streams! Securing Open Source Dependencies Its Not Just Your Code That You Need to Secure With Rana Khalil
The importance of open source security management made headlines in 2017 when the Equifax breach resulted in the compromise of the personal information of millions of users. The breach was attributed to the use of a known vulnerable version of the Apache Struts open source framework. Since then, we’ve seen a rise in the disclosure (and exploitation) of vulnerabilities in open source software, such as the famous Log4Shell vulnerability that was dubbed as the “worst security flaw of the decade”. This resulted in studies being conducted and determining that open-source components make up more than half of an application codebase. The security implications of such a ratio can be significant. While organizations spend considerable time and effort ensuring that the custom code developed by them is secure, usually little to no consideration is put into evaluating the security of the used open-source components. This presentation will introduce Software Composition Analysis (SCA) - the process of identifying vulnerabilities in open-source dependencies. We’ll discuss the criteria you should consider when selecting an SCA solution and the importance of integrating such tools in your DevOps pipelines. Rana is an application security engineer consultant currently working at C3SA. She has a diverse professional background with experience in software development, quality assurance and pentesting. She holds a Bachelor and Master’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Ottawa. She has spoken about her research and work at several local and international conferences. In her non-existent free time, you can find her posting educational videos and holding workshops through her Academy and YouTube channel. She has received several awards and honorable mentions for her research and contributions to the cybersecurity community. Speaker Links: Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/RanaKhalil101 Academy: https://ranakhalil.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/rana__khalil LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ranakhalil1/ Medium Blog: https://ranakhalil101.medium.com/

We Hack Purple Podcast Episode 58 with Guest Anshuman Bhartiya
In this episode of the We Hack Purple Podcast we meet Anshuman Bhartiya, a Principal Security Engineer who also happens to be an avid AppSec blogger (https://www.anshumanbhartiya.com/) and conference speaker.We talked about how the SAST industry seems to be divided into two camps, as well as “the old guard” who used to say no to everything, versus newer ways of working towards better AppSec, such as using empathy and enablement, rather than a stick. Anshuman is a huge fan of automation (I mean, who isn’t?) and he covered many ways we could use it for better security, including vulnerability management. We covered how vulnerability management tends to have 3 phases (finding bugs, fixing bugs,then retesting to ensure they are fixed) and how step two appears to be the most difficult. We ended on inventory, cool new tools that are out, and how there’s still more work we can do in this area to make it even better. All and all, this is a greatepisode!Here are some links you will need to keep track of Anshumanand the great content he releases:• https://www.anshumanbhartiya.com/• https://www.linkedin.com/in/anshumanbhartiya/• https://twitter.com/anshuman_bhJoin us in the We Hack Purple Community: A fun and safe place to learn and share your knowledge with other professionals in the field.Subscribe to our newsletter!Find us on Apple Podcast, Overcast + Pod
