HTTPS for developers
This page contains the resources for the talk titled 'HTTPS for developers'.
Have you heard about HTTPS? I'm sure you have, and I'm also sure that you are convinced of its usefulness (if not, we need to talk!). But the HTTPS ecosystem today is vastly different than a couple of years ago. Today, we need to defend against SSL stripping or the use of fraudulent certificates. Various technologies exist to combat these attacks. Think about Strict Transport Security, Certificate Transparency and Certificate Authority Authorization.
In this talk, we take a look at HTTPS from a developer's point of view. We are not going to talk about SSL, TLS, versions, and algorithms. Instead, we will look at how HTTPS impacts the application. We will see how merely deploying HTTPS is far from sufficient to secure an application. At the end of this session, you will have learned to look at your current HTTPS deployment differently. You will know which steps to take to bring it to the modern age.
Dr. Philippe De Ryck
Hi, I'm Philippe, and I help developers protect companies through better web security. As the founder of Pragmatic Web Security, I travel the world to teach practitioners the ins and outs of building secure software.
Talks and workshops
Security is often about small nuances. In my articles, I dive deeper into various security topics, providing concrete guidelines and advice. My articles also answer questions I often get while speaking or teaching.
Getting security right is all about knowledge. I strongly believe in sharing that knowledge to move forward as a community. Among my resources, you can find developer cheat sheets, recorded talks, and extensive slide decks.
