The Presentation: "Automated vs. Manual Security: You can't filter The Stupid"
Adobe FLEX with BlazeDS offers developers a streamlined application development paradigm, allowing them to create rich Internet applications with little exertion. However, ease of implementation often results in incomplete engineering. In this presentation, Stadmeyer offers his assessment of the FLEX and BlazeDS application architectures as well as detailed examination of the Action Message Format version 3. Developers and administrators will be provided clear examples of how to do things wrong, how to do them right and explain exactly how each component works internally.
While little information is available in the field regarding a FLEX application, Trustwave's security experts will share the knowledge they've gained in migrating towards a Flex application environment. Additionally, the briefing will provide information to both security assessors and developers about a technology that is soon to be prevalent, but is not yet widely understood.
