Their unique, intimate atmospheres encourage collaboration among presenters and attendees, creating conversations that inspire the research and ideas that drive information security to exciting new heights and discoveries.
Joseph Tartaro will present a campaign that focuses on building demand, support, and an overall desire around the creation of Burp extensions in the hope of bringing extensibility to the forefront of web application testing. Tartaro will outline the current demand, capabilities, and limitations while presenting up to a dozen extensions that presently utilize all currently-accessible functionality within the extensibility suite. Along with the showcasing of these extensions, a campaign (a call to arms, if you will) will be introduced to organize and develop an extension community that documents tool primers, lessons learned, and tips/tricks, along with hosting extensions and tools catered to Burp.
