*''' Abstract: Secure Password Storage Practices '''
 
(or Why "Hashing + Salting != Secure Passwords")
 
  
Many web applications require passwords that are hard for users to remember, cumbersome to type, yet easy for hackers to crack. With affordable, lightning-fast hardware aiding hackers, we have recently seen a number of large organizations in the news for user-password security failures. Join us as we discuss common attacks on password lists/tables as well as some password storage practices that can make any cracking attempts not worth the attackers’ time.

    '''Speaker: Jim Manico'''
 +
The heart of how users interact with a web application is the HTML form submission. A great deal of very sensitive data flows over HTML forms. Securing web form submissions is critical for the construction of a secure web application. Multi-form workflows make securing form submissions even more complicated! This presentation will take you on a journey as untrusted data flows from a form submission into the many layers of a secure web application.

The earlier you address security in the engineering of software, the less expensive it will be for your organization. There are many who will tell you that you need to change all of your current processes around building software so it is more secure. Many of those forces are consultants charging high rates to help you deeply modify what you are doing today. This talk will will take the opposite approach. How can you add a few reasonable and mostly lightweight processes to how you build software today to make it more secure? Software development is like driving a boat. You need to look ahead make small changes to steer effectively.
