Repsheet: A Behavior Based Approach to Web Application SecuritY
Traditional static approaches to web application security are failing us. The interaction before, during, and after authentication is largely ignored. We don't ask the right questions of actors attempting to access our web applications. How sure are you that the act or accessing your site is who they say they are? How sure are you that you want them accessing your site at all? Join Aaron as he walks you through asking the questions you should be asking of your users, and how to help prevent abuse, fraud,and otherwise unwanted activity on your web applications. You will learn how to ask the right questions without disrupting user experience.
