Presenter: Matthew Sullivan, "Advanced Client-Side Protections"
Web programmers often cover the web security basics, like implementing anti-XSS and anti-CSRF controls, but often remain unaware of new client-side security directives, like Content Security Policy, HTTP Strict Transport Security, and X-Frame-Origin. This presentation will describe what these three controls do to protect end-users, and what technical challenges an organization might face if they wish to implement these controls in their web applications.
Matthew is a Security Vulnerability Analyst for WebFilings
Presenter: Jason Braddy, "Self-Defending Web Infrastructure"
While it seems clear that security can't effectively be "bolted on" to insecure applications, infrastructure elements still have a role to play in a comprehensive strategy. Thoughtful use of technologies that may already be in place can provide a number of options for improving detection, protection, and response capabilities.
