Security best practices for Apache web services

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ability to secure a web service is an essential part of a developer's armory. However, the developer must consider the complex and sometimes confusing topics of message confidentiality and integrity, as well as client authentication and authorization, against a wide range of potential adversaries.

In this talk, Dr. Colm Ó hÉigeartaigh will provide an overview of recent security advisories against a number of Apache projects that are used in web services, such as Apache Santuario and CXF. As part of this overview, we will discuss how an Apache project can best handle security vulnerabilities, and how to analyse existing security flaws to prevent possible future vulnerabilities.

In addition, the talk will distill security best practices for the developer that have emerged via fixing various security advisories.
