  • 2007-09-05 - Cryptography in Web Apps, Nick Galbreath
    18:30, Suspenders Bar and Restaurant

    Abstract
    Using Cryptography to Improve Web Application Performance and Security:
    Cryptography has a reputation of slowing down applications. However if done
    correctly, it can actually be used to improve performance by storing
    high-value/high-cost results "in public." In addition the same techniques can
    solve common security problems such as authorization, parameter scanning, and
    parameter rewriting. All are welcome -- no previous experience with
    cryptography is required, and the techniques will be presented in a
    programming-language neutral format.
