Speaking at OWASP Security Summit

I will be speaking at the OWASP Application Security Summit on Thursday, July 23rd at Stanford University. The topic is Mastering Session Management.

Abstract
Almost everyone is aware of Cross site Scripting and SQL Injection vulnerabilities and their impact. Every web application implements session management techniques to maintain context, but application developers do not pay a lot of attention to session management because they are usually managed by the application server. Attacks against sessions can result in serious compromises and this presentation will cover some of the most common session management techniques and the attacks that can be launched against sessions. It will also discuss some of the techniques developers can use to protect against session attacks.
