Cryptography in Web Apps, Nick Galbreath
2007-09-05 @ 19:30 EDT (23:30 UTC) - Suspenders Bar and Restaurant 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.

Nick Galbreath have been working on high performance servers and web security at various high profile startups since 1994 (most recently Right Media). He holds a Master degree of Mathematics from Boston University, and published a book on cryptography. He currently lives in the Lower East Side.
