OWASP Austin Chapter Monthly Meeting – February 2019

February 26 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Angular for AppSec Professionals

One of the most popular web frameworks is Angular. While you don’t need to become an expert in new JavaScript frameworks to be able to conduct successful assessments of Angular applications, knowing the fundamentals and building blocks of that framework can definitely give you an advantage during the initial phases of an application security assessment. This talk aims to introduce application security professionals to the basics of AngularJS and Angular applications from a security standpoint. We will also demonstrate how to dynamically debug Angular code from the browser console. This allows us to change the behavior on an application by manipulating Angular components. With that knowledge in hand, we can start conducting a more in-depth analysis of Angular based applications.
