Speaker: Richard Lemon
Abstract: Richard will be speaking about security problems for
Programming is an exercise in problem solving. We work
out what the root cause of the problem is, and we find a
way to program around it. Sometimes, that involves
fixing some of the parts of our system, so that we can
keep on developing.
And sometimes those "fixes" leave our systems vulnerable
to attack. Worse, sometimes the underlying assumptions
of what the problem is make us open up our systems and
make their security weaker.
In this engaging talk, Richard will be demonstrating
some of the problems developers can inadvertently cause
when not paying close enough attention to the overall
security of the system they're working with.
