I’m glad to say that I’ve been accepted to speak at linux.conf.au 2013.
My talk is how to apply the OWASP Developer Guide 2013 to your open source project.
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Developer Guide 2013 is coming soon. In this presentation, you’ll learn about the major revision to one of the major open source code hardening resources.
The new version will encompass not only web applications (although that is its primary focus), but also general advice for all languages, frameworks, and applications through the use of re-usable architecture, designs, patterns and practices that you can adopt in your code with a bit of thought.
- The latest research in application security
- How to apply new patterns to eliminate hundreds of security flaws in your apps, such as the bizarre world of race conditions, distributed and parallel artefacts. Few apps can afford to be single threaded any more, and yet these subtle flaws are easily prevented if you only knew how
- Challenges of documenting bleeding edge practices in long lived documents
- How to pull together a global open source document team whilst holding down a day job
If you code web apps, or write apps that need to be secure, this is a must attend presentation!
Come see me! Challenge me! Make the Guide better for non-web apps!
