Application Platform Security

As a developer who has written applications for any one of these platforms, you must have noticed similarities in .NET and J2EE. For anyone who has developed applications on both J2EE and .NET, you must have noticed the differences between them that make designing applications for both these platforms way different from each other. In this session we are going to talk about the similarities in the approaches of both .NET and J2EE and how you can cross leverage your skills across these platforms. We will also talk about underlying core differences and how you can make use of these feature differences to write more secure applications. As an added bonus we will show you how you can use a few common tools to detect security holes in your code.

Data Platform Security

The Web provides a convenient, cheap, and instantaneous way of publishing data. Now it is extremely easy to disseminate information, it is equally important to ensure that the information is only accessible to those who have the rights to use it. Never before has information security had so many vulnerable points. As the computing industry moves from the mainframe era to the client/server era to the Internet era, a substantially increasing number of points of penetration have opened up. New security procedures and technology are pioneered daily, and this session explains the various security systems involved with solving the current problems via the Server Security, User-authentication security, session security and more. For each layer of security added, the system becomes more protected. Like a chain, however, the entire shield may be broken if there is a weak link. And this session will take a sneak preview of how database security and the various database environments are up for the challenge.

15.30- 16.00 hrs

Tea Break

16.00- 17.30 hrs

Web Platform Security

A security compromise of online web applications could result in huge losses of data and valuable customer information, causing irreversible losses. Popular web platforms such as ASP.NET and Linux/ Apache/ MySQL/ PHP should be designed to minimize security risks occurring due to a bug in the code or a vulnerability in the overall environment. Validating user input, handling user data securely, protecting vital configuration data, blocking common hacks such as injection and cross-site scripting, etc. are some of the basic features required in developing secure web applications. Learn how the LAMP platform and ASP.NET/IIS handle these various security scenarios and why ASP.NET/IIS can provide you with a much safer and secure environment for hosting web applications.
