Summary : Web application security is the new security frontier. Firewalls, IDSs, and IPSs have become all but commodities. Today's threats completely circumvent the whole concept of network security and attack Web sites, web browsers, and the victims themselves. Many modern threats don't damage Web sites at all, but they can have drastically bad effects on users and corporate perception. Phishing, cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgeries and dozens of technologies tied together greatly increase the threat landscape. This talk will do a deep dive into the technical aspects of the threat, while keeping a steady eye on the consumer issues that drive large-scale website design.
