Building in Security: Lessons Learned from 500,000 Developers

A session at Signal

Building a secure service or application can be challenging, but it doesn't need to be. The Twilio Security team has developed a guide to securing applications based on what we see our customers do well and where mistakes happen. This talk focuses on practical and easy ways to be secure. As examples:

  • How to secure keys and credentials in applications. We will walk through how to manage API and other credentials.
  • How Twilio is protecting developers when app credentials do go astray.
  • How to securely authenticate users comparing different authorizations such as OAuth.
  • How to detect breaches and what Twilio does to monitor and detect potential breaches in AWS.
