Strange Loop

Defending Web Applications

Web application defense is becoming increasingly more difficult as attackers gain skills and scripts become more powerful. The problem we face as developers is that no matter how hard we try to protect our applications, the slightest mistake can turn into a disaster.

Join Aaron Bedra as he takes you through the basics of attacking and defending a web application. You will learn the basic techniques for testing your applications and the corresponding defenses. Attendees will be given a vulnerable web application that they will have to defend using the techniques learned throughout the day. At then end of the workshop, a capture the flag competition will be available to students who want to test their new security knowledge.
