Session Outline OWASP Risk Rating Methodology The Challenge of Risk Analysis for Web Applications WASC Web Hacking Incident Database (WHID) Overview 2010 Status Report Top Trends Comparing the OWASP Top 10 vs. the WHID Top 10
OWASP Risk Rating Methodology #Step 1: Identifying a Risk #Step 2: Factors for Estimating Likelihood #Step 3: Factors for Estimating Impact #Step 4: Determining Severity of the Risk #Step 5: Deciding What to Fix #Step 6: Customizing Your Risk Rating Model
OWASP Risk Rating Methodology
The Challenge of Risk Analysis for Web Applications: Analyzing Public Incidents
Risk Rating Problem Instead of being concerned about what CAN happen (theoretical scenarios), perhaps we should first be dealing with what IS happening (analysis of real-world web compromises)…
Publicly Quantifying Web Incidents is Challenging Incidents are not detected ~156 day lapse between compromise and detection* Vast majority of cases the merchant did not identify the intrusion – a 3rd party did based on fraud detection (card brands and banks)* Logging Issues - poor logging and/or no one reviewing them for signs of compromise https://www.trustwave.com/downloads/whitepapers/Trustwave_WP_Global_Security_Report_2010.pdf
Publicly Quantifying Web Incidents is Challenging Victims hide breaches Defacement (visible) and information leakage (regulated) are publicized more than other breaches Example - Banks are not forced to disclose when individual customer funds are stolen
Web Hacking Incident Database (WHID)
WASC Web Hacking Incident Database (WHID)
Tracking Public Web Compromises
WHID Goals Raise awareness of real-world, web application security incidents Provide data for the following Risk Rating steps: #Step 2: Factors for Estimating Likelihood What application weaknesses are actively being targeted? #Step 3: Factors for Estimating Impact What outcome are you worried about? #Step 5: Deciding What to Fix Prioritized listing of remediation issues #Step 6: Customizing Your Risk Rating Model Customized view based on your vertical-market
WHID Data Data Samples (statistically insignificant) Focus on % rather than raw numbers Inclusion Criteria Only publicly disclosed, web related incidents Incidents of interest Defacements of “High Profile” sites are included Ensure quality and correctness of incidents Severely limits the number of incidents that get in
WHID Data: Community Submittal Form Community incident submission leverages crowdsourcing Project team validation ensures quality
WHID Database Content ~216 incidents for 2010 Incidents since 1999 Each incident is classified Attack type Application Weakness Outcome Country of organization attacked Industry segment of organization attacked Country of origin of the attack (if known) Vulnerable Software Additional information: A unique identifier: WHID 200x-yy Dates of occurrence and reporting Description Internet references
Real-Time Statistics Browse real-time data Drill down in to incident details Pivot on key variables (year/vertical market)
Real-time, Searchable DB WHID data is available year-round Useful for application developers and researchers Search by Attack method Outcome Source geography and many more…
