Defense Against the Dark Arts: ESAPI

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Tuesday 13th March, 2012

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

The internet is a virtual playground for all kinds of bullies, those in it just for the "lulz" to those in it for the cold hard cash. This workshop will demonstrate how you can use ESAPI to protect your application from attacks that could lead to serious breaches from attackers ranging from script kiddies to the advanced persistent threat by examining high profile attacks and the defenses against them. Using examples such as the recent Sony and Citibank breaches we will examine how you can protect your app from the same type of attacks and also how you can leverage the components in ESAPI to detect the threat and react to it before it becomes a breach.
