Better security through code hygiene
This page contains the resources for the talk titled 'Better security through code hygiene'.
Writing secure software is hard. Really hard. That’s why the security industry is heavily focused on building tools to make it easier to detect potential security vulnerabilities in your applications. Unfortunately, none of these tools is a silver bullet that will magically fix all your problems. Sometimes, these tools make it even worse, with their constant nagging about potential issues.
In this session, we’ll discuss how you can use a simple but effective code hygiene technique to boost the security of your applications. Additionally, following this hygiene pattern will make your code scanning tools much more effective, and a lot less annoying.
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.
