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.
