"Real World Web Application Security"


This talk deals with practical issues of web application security, with an emphasis on open-source web service tools such as Apache, PHP, and MySQL. Recent exploits in widely-used open source web applications such as phpBB and Wordpress underline the need for web app developers to make security a primary consideration. We'll discuss the most common types of attacks and how to defend against them, both on a code, application, and network design level.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
