Meeting #40: Understanding Security: White Hat Software Development

Slides

This month we will be talking web Security. Thomas Rideout (@RealRideout) will present on the topic. We will be taking a look at the hacker perspective and the common tools, mistakes and exploits within web applications. Discussion will involve a wide spectrum of the web stack, including MySQL, PHP, SSL, Apache/nginx and more. I expect there will be a lot of follow up discussion on it as well.
