The Application Security Ponzi Scheme: Stop paying for security failure

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Consider the major classes of threats that have been significantly mitigated in the past. For OS vulnerabilities, DEP and ASLR have greatly improved the security of every supporting OS. For applications, ORMs have greatly reduced SQL Injection and auto-encoding has greatly reduced XSS. Common to both of these are fundamental changes in the underlying OS or framework, which produces hardened applications without any extra work for developers. Has the scan, fix, rescan cycle finally lost its allure? Matt and Jarret provide their incites into how to revolutionize the app security industry. Come participate in the discussion or just poke holes in Matt and Jarret’s grandiose dream. Maybe you’ll want to passionately defend your corner of the app sec world. Whichever you choose, it will be fun.
