Cryptography For The Average Developer

A session at Symfony Live Portland 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

10:45am to 11:45am (PST)

Every developer at one point or another needs to implement some form of cryptography in one of their applications. Whether it's hashing passwords or encrypting sensitive user data, the security requirements are daunting. Yet you don't need to be an expert in cryptography to implement it correctly. All you need to do is understand the basics, and trust the experts. In this talk, we'll take a look at some of the basic concepts of cryptography and how to implement them in PHP. Additionally, we'll discuss the common problems that developers face and how best to solve them. Finally, we'll dispel some of the myth and rumors around password hashing and how (and more importantly why) to do it properly.
