JavaScript: Pretty cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

2:15pm to 3:15pm (EST)

Since the W3C published the first draft of the XMLHttpRequest object in 2006, the role of JavaScript has steadily become more and more ubiquitous and crucial to web application development. Six years later, it’s not uncommon to peek under the hood of a desktop or mobile app and find JavaScript running the show. In this ""offensive security"" flavored talk, I will briefly introduce some of you (and re-introduce the rest of you) to JavaScript fundamentals and discuss trivial methods and tools for dissecting JavaScript in existing applications. Then, we will focus on how to leverage powerful JavaScript utility libraries to easily perform DOM manipulation, make AJAX requests, and generally wreck shop with minimal scripting and knowledge. Finally, I will give an overview of XSStd.js — an open-source JavaScript framework that will make you get picked NOT last in kickball.
