We will look at popular Ajax programming frameworks and how they can make or break the security of an application. What happens when you point out the same vulnerability in 12 frameworks on the same day? Come find out!
Jacob West manages Fortify Software’s Security Research Group, which is responsible for building security knowledge into Fortify’s products. Jacob brings expertise in numerous programming languages, frameworks and styles together with knowledge about how real-world systems can fail. In addition, he recently co-authored a book, “Secure Programming with Static Analysis,” which was published in June 2007. Before joining Fortify, Jacob worked with Professor David Wagner, at the University of California at Berkeley, to develop MOPS (MOdel Checking Programs for Security properties), a static analysis tool used to discover security vulnerabilities in C programs. When he is away from the keyboard, Jacob spends time speaking at conferences and working with customers to advance their understanding of software security.
