Presentation: "Web application security for dynamic languages"

Time: Friday 16:00 - 16:50

Location: Seacliff AB


 "Building a worldwide marketplace at scale, Etsy has overcome a number of application security challenges. This presentation will focus on new and interesting approaches to application security problems posed by dynamic languages in a continuous deployment environment.

Specifically, this presentation will cover useful security systems such as automatic vulnerability and application fault detection, effective platform defenses for XSS/SQLi, practical security alerting mechanisms, and visualizations of security related data. This talk demonstrates specific PHP code patterns and implementation examples of application defenses, as well as how to create security mechanisms using free tools that improve security posture without commercial security products."
