It has only been two years since Tim O’Reilly coined the phrase Web 2.0 and even shorter time since Jesse James Garret created the shortcut AJAX for the base technology of modern internet applications. In this period the nature of web applications underwent a major change in user experience and development methods.
It is the age of integrated communication. Content is created using rich interfaces by users for others users, collected by feed aggregators, collaboratively bookmarked, tagged, complemented by maps and delivered as a service for mash-ups. A good portion of this services a supplied by the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Python / Perl). Since every technology has its dark companion, new security risks arose, and others grew more important.
If you are developing Web 2.0 and AJAX applications and want to know about the old and new security risks, this presentation is for you.
In this presentation, Johann-Peter Hartmann, CTO, Mayflower GmbH will discuss:
- The changes of security risks in web applications
- Why XSS plays the leading part of AJAX exploits
- Ways to secure your LAMP stack applications for the Web 2.0
